The Neuroradiology section consists of six, full-time faculty members:
Jody Tanabe, M.D., is a Professor of Radiology, Section Chief of Neuroradiology and Vice Chair for Research. A board-certified radiologist with a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) and Maintenance of Certificate (MOC) in Neuroradiology, Dr. Tanabe's research interests include using neuroimaging to understand the neurobiology of substance dependence. Her clinical interests focus on neuroimaging in movement disorders.
Tom Borges, M.D. is Assistant
Professor of Radiology. Dr. Borges is a board-certified Radiologist with a Certificate
of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Neuroradiology. His clinical interests focus
on neuroradiology of the sella and skull base.
Justin Honce, M.D. is Assistant
Professor of Radiology and Program Director for the Neuroradiology Fellowship. A
board-certified Radiologist with a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in
Neuroradiology, Dr. Honce’s research interests focus on quantitative
neuroimaging in multiple sclerosis, and neurodegenerative disorders, as well as
functional MRI and diffusion tractography for pre-surgical planning.
Lidia Nagae, M.D. is Assistant
Professor of Radiology. A board-certified radiologist, Dr. Nagae’s clinical interests include
epilepsy and brain tumors, while her research interests focus on diffusion
tensor imaging (DTI).
Eric Nyberg, M.D. is Assistant
Professor of Radiology. A board-certified radiologist with a Certificate of
Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Neuroradiology, Dr. Nyberg’s research interests focus
on morphologic neuroplastic changes observed in Parkinson’s disease and other
neurodegerative disorders, as well as changes associated with medical, surgical
and alternative therapies. His clinical interests include use of advanced
imaging modalities, such as functional and diffusion tensor MRI for diagnosis
and treatment planning. Other interests include vascular imaging and idiopathic
The Neuroradiology section performs more than
25,000 exams per year across a broad range of service areas such as brain,
spine, head and neck MRI and CT. The Neuroradiology section is capable of
performing task-based fMRI using verbal, motor, and visual stimulation
paradigms, resting-state fMRI, and 32-direction DTI.
