Overview

Our team of board certified neuroradiologists offers a full range of diagnostic and intervention procedures for our pediatric and adult patients for diagnosing and treating central nervous system and spinal disorders. We are comprised of attending physicians with various diagnostic and/or interventional backgrounds.

In our diagnostic subsection, we offer basic to advanced imaging techniques, 24/7 service to our patients for both computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging and their 3D and multiplanar capabilities in acquisition and post processing to achieve faster and more accurate diagnosis.

We are supported by a fully staffed 3D image processing lab and are part of the multidisciplinary teams involved in patient care for the Penn State Cancer Institute, the Neuroscience Institute, and the Spine Center.
