Neuroradiology

Neuroradiology uses X-ray, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, MRI and positron emission tomography (PET) technology to find and diagnose abnormalities of the brain and nervous system, head, neck and spine.

These imaging technologies help our neuroradiologists to diagnose strokes, brain malformations, tumors, aneurysms, Alzheimer’s disease, spine disease, vascular disorders, and other genetic and neurological conditions. Early diagnosis for conditions such as these is crucial to helping the treating physician begin the patient’s needed therapies as soon as possible.
