Neuroradiology is a sub-specialized field of radiology dealing specifically with imaging of and therapy for diseases of the nervous system, brain, spine, head and neck. Neuroradiology physicians are specially trained in imaging of such diseases as stroke, tumors, vascular malformations and aneurysms of the brain, as well as spinal arthritis and disc disease. Neuroradiologists frequently consult directly with other clinical specialists including neurologists, neurosurgeons, spine surgeons and head and neck surgeons. Annapolis Radiology Associates includes four specialty-trained neuroimaging specialists dedicated to providing the highest quality imaging for neurologic disease, as well as image-guided interventions in diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the brain, spine and neurological system. Physicians meet in weekly conferences with other sub-specialists to discuss treatment options for patients with spinal and central nervous system diseases.
Imaging studies are performed at the Anne Arundel Medical Center, as well as at outpatient facilities including the Sajak Pavilion and AAHS Bowie. Angiography and interventional procedures are performed in the interventional suites at the Anne Arundel Medical Center. Facilities include one low-field strength open magnet, four 1.5 Tesla closed magnets, two 3 Tesla closed magnets, five multichannel CT scanners for neurovascular diagnosis and intervention.
