The neuroradiologist represents a radiologist who has advanced their training in imaging of the nervous system including the spine, spinal cord, and spinal nerve roots. The neuroradiologist is an expert in the use of advanced imaging technologies to acquire data about the brain and/or spine. This includes the assessment of the structural, functional, and molecular attributes of nervous system tissues. The neuroradiologist has access to many different technologies to acquire the necessary data. These methods include computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). The neuroradiologist may also specialize in minimally invasive intervention.

The neuroradiologist must successfully complete demanding educational and training requirements. They typically have completed at least four years of undergraduate school, four years of medical school and three to eight years of special training in internship, residency and fellowship settings.  The neuroradiologist may assume a critical role on the spinecare team for some patients.
