Neuroradiology

Neuroradiologists specialize in evaluating the various disorders of the central nervous system

Neuroradiologists specialize in evaluating the various disorders of the central nervous system, including the brain, head and neck regions, and spine. These radiologists have completed additional fellowship training in neuroradiology after their radiology residency at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country.

Radiologists with this specialty primarily use the powerful cross-sectional techniques of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT scan), They analyze, or "read," the images from these exams to identify infected, diseased, injured, and abnormal tissue in the head, neck and spine. They also perform contrast myelograms and image directed therapeutic injections in the spine. Angiography is another technique used to diagnose vascular lesions of the central nervous system, which in some instances may be treated by catheter directed techniques.
