Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology

Our neuroradiology team uses images to diagnose and treat conditions of the brain, head, neck and spine. These experts are an important part of your care team and help you get the best and most effective treatment for your exact condition.

About neuroradiology

Neuroradiology is an important part of brain, head, neck and spine care. There are two provider roles on the neuroradiology team:

World-class expertise

Our neuroradiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiology and have earned a certificate of additional qualification. This means they have completed extensive education and training to become specialists.

These doctors participate in hospital tumor board meetings. These conferences allow specialists from multiple areas to discuss complex cases. This improves treatment planning and helps physicians consider a full range of therapies to select the best approach.

Diagnosis and treatment

You'll benefit from our team's deep experience in imaging for the treatment of conditions like:

We also treat:

  • Arteriovenous malformation
  • Acute nosebleeds
  • Dural arteriovenous fistulas
  • Headaches
  • Spinal fractures
  • Spinal tumors

Our neuroradiologists partner with doctors from every specialty. Each expert brings specific skills to the table. Patients – and physicians – benefit from multiple points of view. The combination of clinical skill and judgment, effective communication and technical expertise brings patients the best available care.

Our team performs these procedures:

  • Brain aneurysm coiling: A minimally invasive treatment in which the physician threads a coil of wire into the aneurysm to fill and close it.
  • Brain aneurysm stenting: A technique in which mesh tubes are guided to the aneurysm to promote clotting and stop bleeding. One example of this procedure uses the Pipeline® stent device. Our doctors were among the first in the nation to use this technology.
  • Blood clot removal: The latest standard of care in stroke treatment, further proven in the DAWN trial.
  • Catheter-delivered chemotherapy
  • Carotid stents
  • Intracranial venous stenting
  • Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty: Minimally invasive outpatient treatments for compression fractures in the spine. Each uses a type of cement to support the vertebra. Kyphoplasty uses a balloon to restore the vertebra to its original shape before adding cement. Vertebroplasty adds cement directly to the fracture. Both procedures take about 15 minutes.
  • Tumor embolization: A procedure which shuts down the blood supply to the tumor in preparation for surgery.

As an academic medical center, we offer the most innovative, minimally invasive therapies that reduce pain and recovery time.
