Category Taxonomy / Tags:
Neuroradiology is the branch of radiology dealing with the nervous system. Radiology residents usually train in neuroradiology as one of the subspecialties in their rotation. Fellowships in neuroradiology are offered for those wishing to specialize in their training. Like some other areas in radiology, neuroradiology has both diagnostic and invasive branches. The diagnostic branch utilizes tools such as CT, MRI, diagnostic angiography, and myelography to determine the problem. The diagnostic brach is often a two-year fellowship. The training for the interventional branch includes some parts of the diagnostic branch, plus techniques for treating aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), acute stroke, and other vascular diseases of the central nervous system. Made possible by the data relayed to the radiologist by imaging machines, these procedures are usually minimally invasive. Training for invasive neuroradiology is often a three year fellowship.
