Neuroradiologists focus specifically on diagnosing conditions related to the nervous system, spine, head and neck through radiology. They can identify abnormalities in these areas and help doctors properly diagnose the presence of tumors, aneurysms and even dementia.
It’s also common for them to consult with patients with persistent headaches or back pains, trauma to a certain area, or any issue that can affect brain function, such as a stroke. Like any radiologist, they are trained to perform x-rays, cat scans, ultrasounds and MRIs, but they work closely with neurologists and neurosurgeons.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

Dr. Khan treats you as though you are part of his family. During one of my visits another doctor said that I was getting the "royal treatment" because Dr. Khan wanted to show me my MRI images. He went out of his way to make sure that I understood the diagnosis. He called my home several times after the procedure to see how I was doing. Not just once but three times he called. His diagnosis was accurate. This is the doctor you want!
Dr. Rihan Khan is fabulous. I received three lumbar epidural injections from him in early 2011 for treatment of a herniated disc at UMC outpatient in Tucson. Before each injection, he spent time explaining the procedure, asking questions and listening to my feedback on symptoms. The procedures were painless and efficiently administered by Dr Khan and the hospital staff. After the injections, he came to my bedside and walked with me down to hall to ensure the injection was targeted correctly to relieve the leg pain from the bulging disc. Amazingly, he personally phoned me three days after the injections to ensure there was no sign of infection and eight days after the injections to ensure the epidural had kicked in to relieve pain and offer followup activity recommendations. Dr Khan is a very kind and caring doctor. He timed the third epidural precisely enabling me to enjoy a three-week Alaska trip pain-free. I highly recommend him for interventional radiology.
