Req ID: 29926
Job Category: Faculty - Clinical
Faculty/Division: Temerty Faculty of Medicine
Department: Dept of Medical Imaging
Hospital Affiliation: Unity Health Toronto - St. Michael's
Campus: St. George (Downtown Toronto)



St. Michael’s Hospital (SMH) in Toronto and the Department of Medical Imaging at the University of Toronto are currently recruiting an Interventional and Diagnostic Neuroradiologist. SMH shares a collegial culture within our Neurovascular (NV) and Diagnostic Neuroradiology teams and are seeking a new physician member to support our mission of outstanding patient care delivered in a positive and constructive work environment. We have excellent compensation and opportunities for professional and career growth. The anticipated start date is October 1, 2023, or as mutually agreed upon.

SMH is a busy 600-bed, tertiary/quaternary care and Level 1 Trauma center. The hospital is a member of the newly formed Unity Health Toronto hospital network and is one of four principal teaching hospitals of the University of Toronto. The NV Program is a multidisciplinary service with staff from Interventional and Diagnostic Neuroradiology (INR and DNR, respectively), Neurosurgery, Neurology (Stroke), and Neurocritical Care. This internationally recognized team provides comprehensive Diagnostic Neuroradiology, Neurointervention, Neurosurgery and Neurology (Stroke) services to our patients. The team also supports a strong academic mandate for research and education, providing formal clinical instruction of undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate trainees.

The department’s INR/DNR services are provided in the context of the Brain and Heart Center. This centre provides a disease-based focus specializing in comprehensive, multidisciplinary patient care with an emphasis on image-guided, minimally invasive therapy for Cerebro- and Cardio- Vascular Disease. The centre provides a “one-stop” environment that supports the patient experience from diagnosis to treatment to follow-up. BRAIN and HEART drive the physical and philosophical transformation of our clinical spaces at SMH, fostering opportunities to work together and to optimize/synergize technology and innovation.

Currently, we utilize a dedicated Phillips biplane flat panel neuroradiology suite. There is an additional Siemens Artis Icono presently being installed in the operating room area. Non-invasive neurovascular imaging is supported by the vascular Doppler lab, three multi-slice CT scanners, and four MRI scanners (two 1.5T and two 3T). The recent addition of a portable ultra-low field (0.064mT) head MRI scanner is allowing us to evaluate, innovate and define the early clinical implementation of this technology in Canada.

SMH is a high-volume referral center for the endovascular management of complex neurovascular conditions and performs the full gamut of NV procedures. We perform large volumes of endovascular aneurysm repairs and carotid stenting procedures annually. SMH is a designated Comprehensive Stroke Center and a designated Trauma hospital. We routinely treat acute large vessel ischemic stroke, brain and spinal cord dural arteriovenous fistulae/arteriovenous malformations, and epistaxis. We perform spine pre-operative embolization and percutaneous procedures (pain, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty). We have a burgeoning practice dealing with venous disease processes in the brain and evolving techniques for intracranial hypotension and Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH). We have excellent access to anesthesia. Our clinical services are supported by capable and dedicated Advanced Practice Nurses and highly efficient clerical staff.

In DNR, we have busy CT and MRI services supporting a strong referral base in neurosurgery, neurology, oncology, and outpatient and community medicine services. These include a high volume of trauma, neuroinflammatory disease, neurooncology/skull-base and spine imaging. We perform the full gamut of advanced neuroimaging techniques including functional and perfusion imaging, tractography, noninvasive vascular imaging and vessel wall imaging.

Research interests in INR include intracranial flow diverters, imaging and management of cerebral vasospasm, carotid artery stenting for asymptomatic patients (CREST 2) and technical maneuvers in acute stroke intervention. There is an additional unique experience and opportunity for new device evaluations and development. We have an active stroke service that is currently engaged in randomized controlled trials for acute large vessel occlusion (ESCAPE MEVO, EASI-TOC). Collaborations for registry-based studies in stroke treatment and prevention are welcome.

Research interests in DNR include advanced imaging biomarkers of neuroinflammatory disease, functional and physiological tumor imaging, and noninvasive vascular imaging, there is also a strong interest in Quality Improvement and trainee education.

The RADIS (Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Dynamic Flow, Imaging, & Simulation) LAB is a recent endeavor initiated by SMH’s Director of Endovascular Research and Innovation and Schroeder Chair in Advanced Neurovascular Interventions.

The Department of Medical Imaging at SMH is also doing internationally recognized medical imaging research work in Artificial Intelligence (AI) through a recently funded Research Chair in Medical Imaging Artificial Intelligence. The Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute and the Keenan Research Centre also provide world-class research support with opportunities to engage in multi-disciplinary collaborative/translational research.

The successful applicant will have completed residency training in Diagnostic Radiology with fellowship training in both Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology. They must be eligible for medical licensure in Ontario. A preference will be given to candidates who have completed a two-year RCPSC accredited fellowship or international equivalent with the expectation of successful completion of subspecialty exams if eligible. They will be a self-starter and a team player, able to interpret all types of neuroradiology studies (plain film, CT and MRI, lumbar puncture, myelography and angiography).

The ideal candidate will be in their mid-career, eligible for appointment at the University of Toronto at the level of Associate Professor or Full Professor and will have an established and recognized track record of clinical expertise and academic success. The position includes a significant opportunity for advancement in clinical leadership and research, particularly as it relates to INR in the Department of Medical Imaging at SMH.

Review of applications will begin immediately. The position will remain open until filled or recruitment is closed. Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and list of 3 references to the Radiologist-in-Chief, Dr. Anish Kirpalani at
