Specialty Description

Neuroradiology comprises both imaging (computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, plain film interpretation, neurosonography, and nuclear radiology) and invasive procedures related to the brain, spine and spinal cord, head, neck, and organs of special sense (eyes, ears, nose) in adults and children.

Special training and skills are required to enable the neuroradiologist to function as an expert diagnostic and therapeutic consultant and practitioner. In addition to knowledge of imaging findings, the fellows must learn the fundamentals of pathology, pathophysiology, and clinical manifestations of the brain, spine and spinal cord, head, neck, and organs of special sense.
