Overview: The Division of Neuroradiology is an integral component of the total neurosciences care provided to both in- and out-patients at Shands hospital. We provide complete adult and pediatric neuroimaging services (CT, MRI, Angiography, Neuro interventional, Myelography, and imaging-guided biopsies), provide consultative services, and participate in the education of allied neuroscience personnel, medical students, diagnostic radiology residents, and neuroradiology fellows. While our primary focus is that of state-of-the-art clinical support, we are also active in research.


Structural Kyphoplasty (Vertebral Augmentation)
Neuroradiology is now offering structural kyphoplasty – a procedure for thoracic and lumbar compression fractures. Structural kyphoplasty provides for stabilization of fractures, improvement of alignment, and pain management. Interested patients can contact Neuroradiology directly, or be referred by their physician. For more information, or to schedule an appointment to be seen in our clinic*, please contact Dr Jeff Bennett at 352-265-0680, extension 46570. (*UF Physicians can schedule kyphoplasty appointments by placing a consult in EPIC using the Interventional Spine consult)
