Neuroradiology

Brain Scan | Emory Neuroradiology Atlanta, GeorgiaThe Division of Neuroradiology has a large group of physicians with a variety of special interests and expertise in diagnostic imaging  of the brain, spine, and otolaryngological (ear, nose, and throat) diseases  in both adults and children.  All our board-certified radiologists are Neuroradiology fellowship trained and are integral members of the healthcare team at Emory.

The division also performs a variety of image-guided procedures, including fluoroscopic (x-ray) guided lumbar punctures, myelography (CT and MRI), CT-guided blood patches for cerebrospinal leak, and ultrasound- and CT-guided head and neck biopsies.  Interventional Neuroradiology functions as a separate division for diagnostic and interventional cerebral and spinal angiography.

The Division provides expertise in neurologic imaging for Emory University Hospital, The Emory Clinic, Emory University Hospital Midtown, Grady Memorial Hospital and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.”
