The JDMI Division of Neuroradiology has 17 academic neuroradiologists and 8 neuroradiology fellows supporting one of the largest clinical and research centres for neurological disease and head and neck cancer in North America. There are 3 emergency departments, a comprehensive stroke centre, and well-established subspecialty programs in neurovascular, neuro-oncology, functional neurosurgery, epilepsy, movement disorders, neurodegenerative disease, skull base, spine, and head and neck cancer. The Division is affiliated with the Krembil Brain Institute for research, the Techna hub for device/software development, and the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Research Institute. Nearby are the Vector Institute for AI research and the main campus of the University of Toronto.

JDMI has state-of-the-art facilities with 17 CT and 14 MR scanners (including research scanners, 3T PRISMA, PET-MR) equipped with the latest technology. The Division of Neuroradiology has a rich tradition of translational research in neurovascular imaging (pioneering work in MR angiography, MR mapping of cerebrovascular reserve, vessel wall MR, high-resolution imaging of microvascular disease), MR and myelography of CSF disorders, and recent growth in advanced tumor imaging and collaboration on MR-guided focused ultrasound treatment.

UHN is a quaternary referral centre for the diagnosis and management of brain and spinal AVM, dural AV fistulae, aneurysms and vascular malformations of the brain, head and neck. The Toronto Western Hospital is designated one of three primary stroke centres in the Greater Toronto Area for acute stroke diagnosis and treatment. Our Neuroradiology team routinely performs stroke prevention techniques (extracranial and intracranial angioplasty and stenting).

Our Head and Neck Program is directly linked to the world-renowned cancer care program at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

Some specialized neuro procedures we provided include:

  • Modern Neuro-imaging techniques, such as Vessel Wall Imaging, four-dimensional CT Angiography as well as computational fluid dynamics and determination of shear stress forces, to determine the individual likelihood of rupture of vascular malformations or aneurysms
  • Cerebral Vascular Reactivity imaging in MRI – a technique that is used to assess the impact of steno-occlusive disease of neck and brain vessels for endovascular and surgical revascularization
  • Minimally invasive procedures of the spine, including spinal biopsies, vertebral body augmentation, nerve and facet blocks
