Interventional Neuroradiology

 

Jeffrey P. Kochan, MD, Director, Interventional Neuroradiology

Charles A. Jungreis, MD

Clinical services are oriented toward cerebral revascularization in the treatment of stroke, e.g. carotid and vertebral artery angioplasty and stents, as well as cerebral reperfusion with intra-arterial mechanical and pharmacologic fibrinolytic therapy. A full spectrum of embolotherapeutic procedures are also available including Micrus and Guglielmi detachable coils (GDC) for embolization of intracranial aneurysms and occlusive therapy of vascular lesions of the head, neck and spine utilizing a wide array of embolic agents. Adjunctive supraselective chemotherapy of head and neck cancers is also available.

 

Spiral reconstructive procedures including vertebroplasty and pain management procedures are also provided.

The Department provides screening and diagnostic mammography and breast ultrasound. Other breast imaging modalities include breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), scintigraphic breast imaging, and intra-operative scintigraphic sentinel lymph node imaging. Procedures available include pre-operative needle localizations, sterotactic core biopsies, ultrasound-guided core biopsies and fine-needle aspirations.

Musculoskeletal radiology provides diagnostic imaging services primarily to the Departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine at Temple University Hospital and Northeastern Ambulatory Care Center, their three satellite clinics, and Shriners Hospital for Children. X-ray, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are available as well as procedures such a bone and soft tissue biopsy, arthrography and nerve blocks.

Plain film studies of the chest are performed with digital (DR), computed radiography (CR) and analog technology. Thoracic examinations are interpreted at a dedicated unit, as well as general pulmonary and emergency department workstations by dedicated members of the thoracic and general diagnostic sections.

 

Thoracic CT Scans are interpreted by members of the thoracic section and cross sectional imaging division including calcium scoring, CT coronary angiography, dedicated pulmonary embolus examination, and high resolution studies using 16 detector equipment. A 64 detector CT scanner is scheduled to be online later in the year.

 

Cardiac MRI and MRA studies are read by members of the thoracic section including studies of the great vessels, CHD mainly in the adult patient, myocardial viability, intracardiac shunts, cardiomyopathies, anomalous coronary circulation, pericardial disease, and cardiac neoplasms. 1.5T technology is currently available with a 3T unit expected within the year.

Vascular/Interventional Radiology

 

Gary S. Cohen, MD, Division Chief

Raymond Fabrizio, MD

Dmitry Niman, MD


Interventional radiology provides a full range of invasive therapeutic and diagnostic vascular (arterial and venous) and non-vascular procedures for both inpatients and outpatients. Arterial and venous disorders are treated by balloon angioplasty, catheter-directed thrombolysis and stent placement. Dialysis access maintenance and catheter placement are services that are well-developed. Newer interventions including TIPS, uterine fibroid embolization and short and long-term venous access solutions are a specialty. Non-vascular interventions available include drainage and stent placement in the biliary, tracheobronchial, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary systems.
