Understanding Neuroradiology and Interventional Radiology
Neuroradiology is a sub specialty of radiology that uses images created by MRI, CT, and x-ray to diagnose conditions specifically related to the head, brain, neck and spine. An Interventional Neuroradiologist goes a step beyond diagnosing, by performing minimally invasive procedures using a live X-ray feed. This allows us to treat conditions using needles, wires and catheters, through a pin sized hole in the skin with exceptional accuracy. See our Interventional Radiology page for more information.
Education and Training Required to be an Interventional Neuroradiologist
Because of the extensive training required, an Interventional Neuroradiologists is one of the most qualified medical professionals to treat conditions related to the head, brain neck and spine. They need a Bachelor’s degree (4 years), typically in a science related field, such as Biology or Chemistry. Then a Medical Degree, (4 years), an internship (1 year), a Radiology Residency (4 years), a Fellowship in Neuroradiology (1 yr), and a Fwellowship in Interventional Radiology.
