With appropriate training and supervision, the student is expected to work independently in reviewing imaging and clinical data in a retrospective cohort of patients with brain tumors. The student will be directly responsible for analyzing advanced MR imaging data on a dedicated workstation. Existing computer skills are helpful but not required. By the end of the project, the student should be prepared to submit his or her work as an abstract to a national meeting and write a manuscript for publication as the first or co-first author. Previous students have presented eight abstracts and published five papers in total.
There will be opportunities to observe interventional neuroradiology procedures, functional MRI scanning, intraoperative MRI scanning, and awake brain tumor surgeries. The student is expected to actively participate in the Neuroradiology Service, and attend daily neurology working rounds, weekly Functional MRI Laboratory meetings, and multidisciplinary disease management team conferences. Interest in radiology is a plus.
