Imaging and intervention in the central nervous system
Neuroradiology is an integral part of the clinical neurosciences, providing both diagnosis and image-guided interventions for diseases that affect the brain, head, neck and spine.
Based primarily at the QEII Halifax Infirmary and the IWK Health Centre, we provide:
- Diagnostic CT, MRI and angiography for a wide range of clinical indications, including neurovascular, neurodegenerative and neuroendocrine diseases, neuro-oncology, neurotrauma, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy
- Endovascular therapy for aneurysms and vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord
- Acute stroke intervention
- Spine interventions
- Image-guided biopsy of lesions involving head, neck and spine
We participate actively in the undergraduate medical education program and the diagnostic radiology residency program. We also provide a two-year neuroradiology residency program leading to Royal College certification in the subspecialty of neuroradiology.
Medical students wishing to explore the subspecialty of neuroradiology or to gain broad exposure to the clinical neurosciences are welcome to join us through the department’s electives program.
