Diagnostic Imaging Services for Neurovascular Disorders
At the University of Chicago Medicine, our innovative approach to interdisciplinary neurovascular care starts with accurate diagnosis. Our neurointerventional surgery team skillfully performs advanced diagnostic imaging techniques with expert precision and state-of-the-art equipment.
Diagnostic Cerebral and Spinal Angiography
Our team performs cerebral and spinal angiograms as needed for diagnostic purposes, pre-surgical planning and post-surgical follow-up. After injecting contrast dye into the blood vessels, our specialists use high-resolution imaging equipment to capture detailed 3-D pictures of the arteries and veins. Diagnostic angiograms usually are performed under light sedation on an outpatient basis.
Non-Invasive Imaging Studies
Using state-of-the-art 3T MR imaging machines and 64-slice multidetector CT scanners, specialists at the University of Chicago Medicine provide high-quality, non-invasive neurovascular imaging services. Our interventional neuroradiologists oversee and perform high-resolution 3-D vascular imaging, including intracranial arterial wall imaging and physiologic imaging studies, such as cerebral perfusion imaging, vascular wall shear stress imaging and cerebrovascular permeability imaging.
