A specialist in radiology focusing on neuroradiology can also perform a variety of interventional treatments. Here you will find selected specialists in neuroradiology.
Specialist in radiology focusing on neuroradiology
Neuroradiology is a specialization within the department of radiology. A radiological specialist with a focus on neuroradiology deals with diseases and changes in the brain, skull, spine, spinal cord and vessels supplying the central nervous system (mainly arteries). The neuroradiologist uses radiological techniques to produce images for the evaluation of complaints. With the interpretation of these images the radiological specialist focusing on neuroradiology can provide support for physicians of all disciplines (such as neurologists and orthopaedic surgeon). However the neuroradiological range comprises not only imaging diagnostics but also, increasingly, also intervention, minimally invasive treatment of diseases of the central nervous system (such as occlusion of intracranial aneurysms).
Diagnostic tools of neuroradiology
A radiological specialist (with a focus on neuroradiology) makes use of diagnostic tools including conventional radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging, angiography (especially digital subtraction angiography), sonography (ultrasound), myelography and angiography.
