Patients at Miami Neuroscience Institute have access to one of the country’s leading neuroradiology programs. Our decades of experience and advanced technology allow us to deliver more accurate diagnoses that lead to better treatment plans and outcomes.
Neuroradiology uses advanced imaging techniques and interventional therapy to treat conditions in the head, neck, brain and spine. It combines our expertise in neuroscience, diagnostic imaging and interventional neuroradiology.
Our neuroradiology team includes 10 Board-certified neuroradiologists who specialize in reading images of neurological conditions. The neuroradiologists work closely with interventional neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons to find a personalized, effective plan that will treat your condition with minimal side effects.
Why do I need neuroradiology services?
You may need neuroradiology services if you have a condition that affects the central nervous system, including problems in the head, neck, brain and spine. Neuroradiology may be used to diagnose and treat conditions such as:
- Infections of the central nervous system
- Tumors or other masses
- Structural abnormalities
- Inflammatory lesions on the brain or spine
- Central nervous system conditions, such as multiple sclerosis
What kind of neuroradiology services are offered at Miami Neuroscience Institute?
At Miami Neuroscience Institute, we offer the most advanced neuroradiology services available today, including:
- CT scans
- CT angiography
- CT perfusion
- MRI spectroscopy
- MR perfusion
- MRI diffusion tensor imaging and tractography
- Functional MRI
- Intraoperative MRI (iMRI)
- Intraoperative CT (iCT)
If you undergo neuroradiology tests at Miami Neuroscience Institute, your results will be reviewed by one of our Board-certified neuroradiologists. With an entire team specializing in neuroradiology, we are able to easily collaborate with other experts.
By combining these services with the advanced techniques of our interventional neuroradiology team, we can treat conditions faster and with more positive results.
- Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)
- Diffusion Tensor Tractography (DTT)
When you come to Miami Neuroscience Institute for neuroradiology services, you can expect:
- Board-certified neuroradiologists who are specifically trained to read and interpret neurological tests and imaging.
- A team that is dedicated to being at the forefront of neuroradiology techniques.
- A collaborative effort among team members with the goal of providing the best possible care and treatment.

By combining neuroradiology with some of the recent advances in interventional neuroradiology, we are able to better visualize neurological conditions and provide more effective treatments. In stroke treatment, for example, neuroradiology helps guide our interventional neuroradiologists when extracting a blood clot with a catheter. This treatment can be life-changing for stroke patients and help them recover faster.
Intraoperative MRI (iMRI) and intraoperative CT (iCT) allow our neurosurgeons to re-scan your head, neck, brain or spine during surgery. Our neuroradiologists read the scans and give expert feedback to the surgeons, which can help guide surgical decisions. For example, a surgeon may use an iMRI to assess whether an entire tumor has been removed, or if more surgery is needed to remove any remaining tumor.
This particular MRI test shows white matter tracts in the brain. White matter helps different parts of the brain communicate and it is important in brain function and learning. We use diffusion tensor imaging and tractography to plan surgeries and come up with a surgical approach that will avoid damaging the white matter tracts.
