CNI Neuroimaging Service
The CNI Neuroimaging Service combines advanced imaging technology and the expertise of both diagnostic neuroradiologists and interventional neuroradiologists to provide the highest level of subspecialty diagnostic interpretations and interventions in all aspects of neuroradiology. Our specialists work hand-in-hand with neurologists, neurosurgeons and other members of the CNI team to provide the most integrated medical care possible in the neurosciences.
The longstanding relationships between CNI, Swedish Medical Center, Craig Hospital, Radiology Imaging Associates (RIA) and other key partner organizations are integral to the success of this specialized program. The CNI Neuroimaging team also works in concert with the CNI Interventional Neuroradiology Service, the CNI Stroke Program and various other CNI centers and services to achieve the best-possible outcomes for patients and their families.
Some of the common conditions evaluated with neuroimaging include brain tumors, multiple sclerosis (MS), epilepsy, headaches, dementias, movement disorders, stroke, hearing loss and other neurological conditions. In each patient case, imaging is tailored to evaluate the specific medical question being posed. This tailoring of exams is critical to the diagnostic workup of each individual patient and requires the close collaboration of the entire team.
CNI partners with Swedish Medical Center to provide the most advanced imaging technologies available in the Rocky Mountain region, including the latest generation Computed Tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET)/CT, and 3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners, as well as advanced biplane digital angiography. These advanced imaging tools yield a number of important advantages in evaluating a variety of neurologic disorders, including higher resolution imaging, shorter imaging times and new imaging techniques not available with older scanners.
