Interventional neuroradiology (INR) combines advanced three-dimensional imaging techniques with endoscopic surgical procedures. INR specialists perform minimally invasive endoscopic techniques using high-tech imaging equipment to guide their work.
At the Weill Cornell Medicine Brain and Spine Center, the Interventional Neuroradiology Program specializes in:
Minimally invasive approaches to cerebrovascular conditions such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations of the brain and spine, and stroke.
Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for the treatment of painful vertebral body fractures.
Pre-operative embolization to improve outcomes of surgery in brain and spinal tumors.
Intra-arterial chemotherapy of tumors of the eye (retinoblastoma), the brain, and the spine.
Treatment of superficial vascular malformations of the face and neck.
Venous sinus stenting for patients with tinnitus or idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) caused by venous sinus stenosis.
