Neurointerventional radiology uses minimally invasive technologies to treat vascular conditions involving the central nervous system – the brain, spinal cord, head and neck. Radiologists in the UCSF Neurointerventional Radiology Clinic work with specialists in head and neck surgery, neurology, neurosurgery and radiation oncology. Some of the conditions treated include aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and stroke, as well as fractured vertebrae.
Images and reports
Getting your results
A radiologist will review your images and write a report. When finalized, the report and your images will be available in MyChart, UCSF's secure online portal for patients. You can access this report as soon as this occurs, so you may see it before your referring doctor does. Learn more about receiving test results and medical reports in MyChart. If you have questions about a report, please contact your referring doctor.
To get a CD of your medical images and reports, send a request to the UCSF Imaging Library.
Sending images to UCSF
If you need to send medical images that were taken at another institution to your UCSF radiologist, you can do so through our secure online portal. For instructions, visit How to Send Radiology Images to UCSF.
