Neuro interventional radiology is a subspecialty of radiology that uses imaging technology to provide minimally invasive treatment for a wide range of medical conditions.
Also known as endovascular treatment, this technique uses X-rays, MRI and other imaging methods to guide small catheters into the body, usually through an artery or vein to treat internally at the source of the disease. Neuro interventional radiology is also used to insert stents or coils or inject medication.
Among many other things, neuro interventional radiology is used to treat:
- Brain aneurysms and abnormal blood vessels
- Cardiovascular disease
- Benign and malignant tumors
