Neuroradiology is the subspecialty of radiology that uses advanced imaging techniques to evaluate the brain; spine; neck; and ears, nose and throat.
Our neuroradiologists provide imaging services using leading-edge equipment, including multi-slice CT scanners and high field (1.5 T and 3 T) MRI systems. We individualize scans to each patient's unique medical history and symptoms. The imaging studies include conventional MRI and CT of the neurologic system, as well as advanced neuroimaging. Neuroimaging includes:
- MR and CT angiography
- MR and CT perfusion
- MR spectroscopy
- Diffusion tensor imaging (also known as tractography)
- Functional MRI
We also perform several subspecialty procedures, including x-ray guided lumbar punctures, myelography and discography.
Our neuroradiologists work with our pediatric and adult colleagues to provide coordinated multidisciplinary care for our patients. Some of the specialties that we work closely with include:
- Orthopedic surgery
- Emergency medicine
- General medicine
