The 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.

Key Procedures

  • CT – Computed Tomography of the Brain, Spine, Sinuses, Face, Temporal Bones, and Neck
  • CTA – Computed Tomography Angiography of the Brain and Neck
  • Advanced CT techniques including CT Perfusion and 3D reconstructions
  • MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain, Spine, Sinuses, Face, Temporal Bones, and Neck
  • MRA – Magnetic Resonance Angiography of the Brain, Neck, and Spine, including time-resolved (4D) MRA
  • MRI of the Brachial Plexus and Lumbosacral Plexus
  • MRI of the Temporomandibular Joint
  • Clinical functional MRI (fMRI) for presurgical planning
  • Advanced MRI techniques including MR Perfusion (including cerebrovascular reserve imaging with acetozolamide) and Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI),
  • Fetal MRI
