He is also the director of the interventional radiology research lab, which is part of the Department of Radiology Imaging Research Center (IRC). This state-of-the-art IR lab, which is identical to our clinical IR labs, possesses cutting edge digital flat detector technology including 3-D rotational angiography (3DRA), 3-D Roadmapping, and C-arm cone beam CT. These features provide superior image quality for digital subtraction angiography, 3-D angiography reconstruction, and “CT-like” imaging. Lab support staff includes RT(R) licensed IR technologists, and an IR lab manager. The long term goal of the IR research lab is to develop new image guided interventional procedures and imaging techniques and protocols to improve clinical outcomes. Having an IR research lab identical to our IR clinical labs facilitates translation of lab results into clinical practice.

Jennifer J. Vannest, PhD
Cognitive neuroscience of language and memory (using functional MRI); cognitive effects of epilepsy and neurodevelopmental disorders
Neurological disorders and language impairments
Jennifer Vannest, PhD, completed her undergraduate education at the Ohio State University and continued there for her graduate work. Her PhD is in linguistics, and in addition, her graduate training included a number of courses in cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and speech and hearing sciences. As a postdoctoral fellow at University of Michigan and University of Rochester, Dr. Vannest was trained to use functional MRI to study the brain mechanisms underlying language skill.
Dr. Vannest came to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in 2006, and her current research makes use of functional MRI to examine how epilepsy and neurodevelopmental disorders affect language function, ultimately leading to better treatment and educational strategies for children with these disorders.
PhD: Ohio State University, Linguistics.
Postdoctoral Training: University of Michigan (Psychology), University of Rochester (Brain and Cognitive Sciences).
