Our services include exams, imaging studies, interventional radiology, education and support. Advanced Radiology Services physicians work closely with your medical team to help determine and provide the best solution for your health care. We are available for consult regarding our findings about your case, and also participate in multi-specialty clinics, which involve a team of specialists meeting together with a patient.
When your doctor orders a radiology exam, images or pictures of your body will be produced. A radiologist will interpret these images and provide a written report for your doctor, who will discuss the results with you. Since the report will likely influence the care you receive, it is important to have an experienced, board-certified radiologist interpret your medical images. Where you have your radiology exam usually determines who interprets the images and prepares the report for your doctor. To ensure that one of our radiologists will read and interpret your medical images, ask your doctor to send you to one of the locations [note: link to ARS Locations page] served by Advanced Radiology Services.

Neuroradiology is a subspecialty diagnoses disorders of the head, neck, and spine, and locates tumors, traumatic injuries, and cerebrovascular disorders including stroke, aneurysms, vascular malformations and carotid stenosis. Neuroradiologists use a wide range of techniques, such as carotid/cerebral angiogram, CT, discogram, MRI, lumbar puncture, myelogram and fluoroscopy.
This subspecialty also includes Interventional Neuroradiology which allows for the diagnosis and treatment of vascular abnormalities, such as aneurysms and other vascular malformations within the brain, without surgery. Recent stroke intervention developments that we provide include aneurysm coiling and use of the Penumbra and Merci devices.
