Interventional neuroradiology

  • Interventional neuroradiology is a subspecialty in which highly trained neuroradiologists use percutaneous techniques to diagnose and treat disorders of the brain, spine and spinal cord. Areas of specialization include:

    • Intra-arterial thrombolysis, intra- and extra-cranial cerebral angioplasy and mechanical clot retrieval
    • Aneurysm coiling
    • Diagnostic angioplasty

    One benefit of neurointerventional radiology is that it may be less invasive than comparable surgical procedures and can be used as primary or adjunctive treatment if:

    • Cerebral aneurysms
    • Stroke
    • Vascular lesions and plaque
    • Arteriovenous malformations
    • Brain, spinal cord and neck tumors
    • Compression fractures of the spine
    • Fistulas
