Neurovascular Services Q&A

What are neurovascular services?

Neurovascular services involve using innovative state-of-the-art imaging and sophisticated surgical approaches to diagnose and treat vascular conditions using minimally invasive techniques. 

The Radiology Imaging Associates team is at the forefront of neurovascular care in the United States. They’re known as the leading team in the Aurora area, and the practice is constantly in demand thanks to their stellar reputation and superior skills. 

What types of conditions do neurovascular services diagnose?

At Radiology Imaging Associates, neurovascular services focus primarily on the head and neck. 

This covers conditions and problems such as: 

  • Aneurysms
  • Hemorrhage
  • Blood clots
  • Stroke
  • Stenosis
  • Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
  • Carotid Stenosis
  • Chronic subdural hematoma
  • Venous sinus stenosis and thrombosis
  • Head and neck tumors

These are just a few of the extensive range of conditions neurovascular services can include. 

What types of procedures are included in neurovascular services?

Neurovascular services include procedures such as: 

Diagnostic angiography 

Diagnostic angiography is a procedure to evaluate blood vessel health and track the way that blood moves through those blood vessels. This diagnostic procedure can help detect problems such as atherosclerosis (artery narrowing), which can point to an increased risk of a stroke or heart attack. 


Angioplasty opens up narrowed or blocked blood vessels, usually using a tiny inflatable balloon.


A thrombectomy removes a blood clot from a blood vessel to allow for normal healthy blood flow again. 


Stenting is a procedure, often performed alongside a thrombectomy or angioplasty, to keep a formerly narrowed or clogged blood vessel open. 

Head or neck tumor embolization

Embolization deliberately stops the blood flow to a specific area, usually a tumor. This stops a head or neck tumor from growing and causes it to wither. 

Inferior petrosal sinus sampling

Inferior petrosal sinus sampling is a procedure that measures adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) within the veins that drain the pituitary gland. This level is measured against the ACTH in the peripheral blood. It can tell if a pituitary tumor causes ACTH-dependent Cushing’s disease.

Many other procedures are also available. Two surgeons often team up for complex cases.

At Radiology Imaging Associates, only highly proficient neurointerventional surgeons perform procedures for referring physicians and their patients. The doctors regularly perform procedures at most area hospitals and are highly respected as the undisputed leaders in the neurovascular services field.
