Neuroradiologists Provide Expertise in Brain Imaging Technology
Holy Cross Hospital's expert neuroradiologists are critical to the accurate and speedy diagnosis of disorders of the brain and spine. They are an important part of the Neuroscience patient care team and provide round-the-clock services - comprehensive capabilities unique for a community hospital.
Diagnostic neuroradiologists have special training and expertise in the use of sophisticated technology to create detailed images of the head, neck and spine. They use these tools to evaluate and diagnose stroke, spine problems, brain disorders - including tumors and epilepsy - and disorders of the nervous system.
Imaging Tools: The hospital's extensive neuroradiology capabilities offer patients the most advanced imaging technology available.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- CT Scan (Computerized Axial Tomography)
- Bi-Plane Angiography, an advanced technology that produces real-time images of complex structures and vessels from two different angles. It is used as a diagnostic tool to help physicians precisely locate abnormalities.
