Interventional Neuroradiology in Dallas

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Interventional neuroradiology uses advanced minimally invasive (endovascular) techniques to treat serious diseases affecting the brain and central nervous system. These image-guided therapies help to address previously difficult-to-treat or even untreatable conditions.​

Interventional neuroradiology procedures can result in shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery times, reduced pain, and less complication risks. These techniques can help treat the following conditions:

  • Brain aneurysms
  • Brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
  • Carotid-cavernous fistulae
  • Dural arteriovenous fistulae
  • Extracranial (brachiocephalic) atherosclerosis
  • Extracranial and paraspinal vascular malformations
  • Head and neck tumors
  • Intracranial atherosclerosis
  • Juvenile nasopharyngeal tumors
  • Meningioma
  • Nosebleeds
  • Paragangliomas
  • Spinal vascular malformations
  • Carrera
  • Vasospasms
  • Vertebral body compression fractures
  • Vertebral body tumors

Advanced Technology on the Brain and Spine

The advanced neuroradiology technology at Baylor University Medical Center, a part of Baylor Scott & White Health, can improve the diagnoses and treatment of stroke, brain aneurysms, brain and neck tumors, and other neurological conditions.

Baylor University Medical Center’s ​neurointerventional biplane angiography suite produces highly detailed, three-dimensional views of blood vessels leading to the brain and deep within it. The biplane system produces images simultaneously from two regions of the patient’s head, front-to-back and side-to-side. The suite may benefit patients by reducing the amount of contrast material required, improving visualization for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and shortening procedure times. 

If additional information about the brain and surrounding tissue is needed to plan treatment, the system also includes software for CT scanning that area. Images produced by the biplane system aid physicians on the medical staff in performing neurointerventional procedures.
