Message from the Section Chief

Neuroradiology is a subspecialty that uses a broad range of diagnostic and treatment methodologies to examine abnormalities and disorders of the brain, face, head, neck, peripheral nerves, and spine. As experts in our field, we consult with research investigators and referring providers while also striving for excellence in education, patient care and research. ~ Ahmet Baykal, M.D., Ph.D.

Overview

Neuroradiology is comprised of fellowship-trained, board certified radiologists who are highly skilled in providing precise diagnosis and appropriate therapy for the best medical outcomes.

Neuroradiology is comprised of fellowship-trained, board certified radiologists who are highly skilled in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, perfusion imaging and MR spectroscopy. Our radiologists also perform image-guided procedures for diagnostic purposes including fluoroscopic-guided lumbar punctures, myelograms, cisternograms, and diagnostic cerebral and spinal angiography.

A subspecialty of radiology, neuroradiology focuses on the diagnosis of diseases and disorders of the brain, spine, and the head and neck region. These diseases and disorders include:

  • Trauma
  • Stroke
  • Brain tumors
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Aneurysms
  • Vascular malformations
  • Demyelinating disease
  • Degenerative diseases of the spine 

Neuroradiology is integral to VCU Health's designation as a Level I Stroke and Trauma Center. There is active collaboration with specialists in neurology, neurosurgery, ear-nose-throat (ENT), and oncology to offer life-saving treatments.
