What is it?

Neuro-interventional imaging procedures are the use of various minimally invasive imaging procedures to diagnose and treat neurological conditions and diseases of the head, neck and spine.

It is considered minimally invasive surgery because it uses a small incision instead of a larger incision used in open surgery. Imaging techniques are used to help guide therapeutic agents to precise areas. Shorter hospital stays and reduced recovery times are some benefits of neuro-interventional procedures.

Doctors providing neuro-interventional have specialized training and education in radiology, neurology and neurosurgery.
