Interventional Neuroradiology

Originally developed in the 1980's by radiologists and neurological surgeons, Interventional Neuroradiology is made possible by dramatic advances in computer technology and state-of-the-art equipment.

Essentially, Interventional Neuroradiology therapies are accomplished through microcatheters inserted in the groin area and, under X-ray guidance, threaded through the blood vessels leading into the brain.

Interventional neuroradiologists currently employ minimally invasive procedures to accomplish a wide variety of treatments including: stroke treatment by delivering clot-busting drugs directly to the site of the blockage; aneurysm therapy by inserting platinum coils into the aneurysm bulge to prevent clotting and rupture; and spinal treatments by injecting cement into a fractured vertebra in order to reinforce the bone.
