Neuroradiology

The neuroradiologists who work with Juris Medicus have historically provided expert second opinion radiological interpretation for complex cases on both the national and international level.

Neuroradiology, a subspecialty in radiology, focuses on the imaging of the brain, spine, head, neck, and central and peripheral nervous systems to diagnose abnormalities in these areas. Neuroradiologists interpret x-rays, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography (CT) scans. They also perform and interpret angiographic studies (MRA) of the brain and spine where a special contrast dye is introduced to better define an area of study. A functional MRI (fMRI) may be studied by a neuroradiologist to determine which parts of the brain are handling critical functions by detecting changes in blood flow. This imaging is used to help doctors see the effects of stroke, trauma, brain tumors, or diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Neuroradiologists are board certified in radiology and complete a 1-2-year fellowship training after a radiology residency. A neuroradiologist who has additional training in interventional neuroradiology may perform minimally invasive treatments for many neurological disorders, such as brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and compression fractures of the spine.
