Neuropathology and Neuroradiology

Neuropathology is a study of science focused on the disease of the spinal cord, brain and neural tissue. This involves the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Tissue analysis comes from either surgical biopsied or post mortem autopsies. Common tissue that include muscle fibers and nervous tissue. Common applications of neuropathology involves studying test of tissue in patients who have Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, dementia, Huntington's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, mitochondria disease, and any disorder that has neural collapse in the brain or spinal cord.

Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of radiology which provides comprehensive imaging of the brain, neck and spine in pediatric and adult patients by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT). Plain radiography is utilized on a limited basis and ultrasound is mostly used in limited circumstances, in particular in the pediatric population. Angiography is traditionally used for the diagnosis of vascular abnormalities or diagnosis and for the characterization of masses or other lesions but is being replaced in many instances by CT and MRI angiography and imaging.
