Neurointerventional Radiology

Endovascular Treatment

Neurointerventional 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, MRIs 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. Neurointerventional radiology is also used to insert stents or coils or to inject medication.

Among many other things, neurointerventional radiology is used to treat:

  • Strokes
  • Brain aneurysms and abnormal blood vessels
  • Cerebrovascular disease 
  • Carotid stenosis
  • Seizures
  • Benign and malignant tumors
  • Tinnitus
