What is Interventional Neuroradiology?

Interventional Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of radiology dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases of the brain, head & neck, and spine. By treating these conditions through an endovascular approach using the body's natural conduits (arteries and veins) to reach the site of disease, the need for open surgery can often be avoided, and a speedy return to normal life can be facilitated.

The unit works closely with our Neurosurgical colleagues who assist in the day to day management of our patients on the ward and in the Neuro-intensive care unit. By utilising a multi-disciplinary approach, we are able to offer the optimal management for patients with a wide variety of Neurovascular disorders.
