Neuroradiology is an international cross-disciplinary
journal devoted to the study of diagnostic and therapeutic
neuroradiology and related neurosciences. The discipline
encompasses all those low invasive therapeutic techniques
variously known as therapeutic neuroradiology, endovascular
surgery, endovascular neurosurgery, etc.
Interventional or therapeutic neuroradiology is not confined
to endovascular procedures. It is an umbrella term embracing
many treatments ranging from percutaneous nucleotomy to
stereotactic biopsies and radiosurgery and an array of
allied or overlapping disciplines from intensive care
to physiology and embryology.
The fact that all the procedures are performed in a radiological
unit using a neuroradiological approach is the reason we
chose this name for the journal. Interventional Neuroradiology
aims to provide a forum to exchange news and views on all
aspects of this fascinating new field of medicine. The journal
publishes original papers, review papers, opinions and case
reports (commented by the editors) and congress announcements.
A special section will be devoted to "how-to-do- it"
professional news. Other features include a commented review
of the literature, a "library corner", biographical
sketches of leading figures and contributions on ethical
issues and the cost- benefit debate.
