Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of radiology, focusing on the diagnosis and characterization of abnormalities of the central and peripheral nervous system, spine, and head and neck. Neurologic imaging methods include computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Ultrasound is used in limited circumstances, in particular in the pediatric population. Angiography is traditionally used for diagnosis of vascular abnormalities or diagnosis and characterization of masses or other lesions but is being replaced in many instances by CT or MRI angiography and imaging.
Neuroradiology fellowship is a one or two-year program that follows diagnostic radiology residency. Interventional neuroradiology is a further subspecialty that adds another year or two of training.
The major professional association in the United States representing neuroradiologists is the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR).
