Diagnostic Imaging

Neurointerventional Radiology

Neurointensivists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons all work collaboratively with the neurointerventional radiologists to provide many treatment options for neurovascular disorders. Interventional Neuroradiology utilizes cutting edge imaging, interventional and surgical treatment of stroke, aneurysm, and other neurovascular disorders. They also work closely with internal hospital specialists to utilize diagnostic capabilities. Our interventional technologists have specialized training and are licensed by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the Texas Department of Health (TDH.)
