Vista Radiology Brings Specialized Neuro-Care to the Roane Community
Roane Medical Center is now offering specialized neuro-care to the surrounding communities through on-site cerebral angiogram – a screening tool used to detect blood cloths, search for aneurysms, or look for abnormal blood vessels in the brain.
Dr. Keith Woodward, neuro-interventional radiologist with Vista Radiology, is leading the treatment and on-site care clinics. “Vista is proud to offer this screening at Roane Medical Center. By offering cerebral angiogram on-site, we have the ability to offer treatments previously unavailable without driving outside of Roane county.”
Cerebral angiogram is a diagnostic procedure that uses a special dye coupled with x-rays to see how blood flows through the brain. It is useful in determining narrowing or abnormalities in arteries which can lead to strokes.
