General Information About Neuroradiology

Neuroradiology focuses on the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral nervous system (connecting the central nervous system to limbs and organs), the spine, and head and neck. Neuroradiologists provide primary imaging interpretation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans of the head, brain and spine, and perform some diagnostic and therapeutic procedures including pain management injections.

Similar to other branches of radiology, neuroradiology has both diagnostic and interventional aspects to the subspecialty and uses multiple imaging services for various indications and diagnosis. Examinations performed include both diagnostic MRI and CT along with therapeutic procedures such as pain management injections.

Common Diseases:
