The Division of Neuroradiology provides subspecialty expertise in diagnostic imaging of the brain, spine, and otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) related 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 puncture, 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
  • CTP – Computed Tomography Perfusion
  • MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain, Spine, Sinuses, Face, Temporal Bones, Neck, Temporomandibular Joint, and Brachial Plexus
  • MRA – Magnetic Resonance Angiography of the Brain, Neck, and Spine, including time-resolved (4D) MRA
  • fMRI - Clinical functional MRI (fMRI) for presurgical planning
  • Advanced MRI techniques including MR Perfusion, Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI),and MR Spectroscopy (MRS)

The Key Imaging Guided Procedures include:

  • Fluoroscopic (x-ray)–guided Lumbar Puncture
  • CT Myelography
  • CT Cisternography
  • CT-guided blood patch for cerebrospinal leaks (CSF leaks)
  • CT-guided head and neck biopsy
  • Ultrasound-guided head and neck biopsy
