Our interventional neuroradiologists use state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging techniques, including high-resolution MR imaging, 3D vascular imaging, and diagnostic cerebral and spinal angiographies.
Diagnostic Cerebral & Spinal Angiography
Our team performs cerebral and spinal angiograms as needed for diagnostic purposes, pre-surgical planning and post-surgical follow-up. After injecting contrast dye into the blood vessels, our specialists use high-resolution imaging equipment to capture detailed 3D pictures of the arteries and veins. Diagnostic angiograms usually are performed under light sedation on an outpatient basis.
Non-Invasive Imaging Studies
Using state-of-the-art 3T MR imaging machines and 64-slice multidetector CT scanners, specialists at UChicago Medicine provide high-quality, non-invasive neurovascular imaging services. Our interventional neuroradiologists oversee and perform high-resolution 3D vascular imaging, including intracranial arterial wall imaging and physiologic imaging studies, such as cerebral perfusion imaging, vascular wall shear stress imaging and cerebrovascular permeability imaging.
