Patient Care

Neuroradiology is at the center of the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases.

All examinations are interpreted on a state-of-the-art picture archiving communication system (Visage PACS).

Our division encompasses all diagnostic imaging studies performed on the central and peripheral nervous system as well as the head and neck and skull base. UF Health Jacksonville is one of the major academic health centers in Northeast Florida.
