Care and Treatment of Neurological Conditions
Interventional neurologists at TexomaCare utilize image-guided techniques to treat many of the most complex and dangerous diseases of the brain, neck, and spine. They treat patients in the Neurointerventional Suite at Texoma Medical Center which offers biplane angiography, an advanced, minimally invasive technology used to diagnose and treat stroke and other neurological conditions, including:
- Brain aneurysms
- Carotid artery blockages
- Brain and neck tumors
- Intracranial hemorrhages
- Arteriovenous malformations
Biplane angiography works by using two cameras that rotate around a patient and provide simultaneous front and side views. The technology provides high-definition, 3D images of blood vessels and soft tissue. It also requires fewer injections of contrast dye compared to other procedures, which is beneficial for the patient.
Biplane imaging is especially helpful during a procedure called cerebral vascular angiography, which is used to take images of the blood vessels in the brain. The 3D images produced with biplane technology can help locate blockages that cause stroke and can help identify aneurysms and tangles of blood vessels that can lead to stroke. The images can also assist physicians with placing stents and guiding catheters through the brain. Biplane is also used during coiling, a minimally invasive procedure that blocks blood flow to an aneurysm.
