UT Southwestern Medical Center's Interventional Neuroradiology faculty includes specialists in head and neck radiology, spine radiology, and magnetic resonance imaging. We use the latest imaging technologies to conduct more than 3,000 innovative, minimally invasive surgeries annually.
Who We Are
Our team specializes in standard neuroradiology computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, diagnostic myelography, angiography, and discography. We have extensive training and experience in catheter-based treatments such as cerebral aneurysm coiling (embolization), carotid and cerebral angioplasty and stenting, and dissolving blood clots in stroke.
The faculty conducts research activity in many of these areas, as well as patient studies in conjunction with clinical services on the campus. We also maintain our own research angiography lab.
With unique procedures and technologies such as kyphoplasty, angiography, vertebroplasty, and radio frequency ablation – in addition to the more standard computed tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – our interventional radiology physicians can visualize internal organs while performing surgeries with minimal disruption to your body and overall functionality.
What We Treat
Interventional Neuroradiology offers CT and MRI scanning of the brain, head and neck, and spine, including:
- Cerebral angiography
- Cerebrovascular angioplasty and stenting for carotid stenosis
- Embolization procedures to treat brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVM), and cavernous carotid fistula
- Functional MRI and CT and MR angiography
- Interventional neuroradiology
- Spinal procedures such as:
- Steroid injections for pain management
