Highly Trained Neuroradiologists
Neuroradiologists are physicians who specialize in the field of radiology. After receiving a medical degree additional training, known as residency, involves four strenuous years of supervised practice. Following radiology residency, the neuroradiologist undergoes two additional years of fellowship training under the supervision of trained neuroradiologists.
