Non-vascular procedures include gastrointestinal intervention (visceral stenting, hepatobiliary intervention, gastrostomy tube insertion), genitourinary intervention (percutaneous stone tracts, nephrostomy tube insertion, stenting), fluoroscopic spinal injections (epidural, nerve root, facet joint) and women’s fertility (hysterosalpingograms, fallopian tube recanalization).
Vancouver Imaging interventional neuroradiologists work with the endovascular neurosurgeons at Vancouver General Hospital to provide the only dedicated expert 24/7/365 fellowship-trained service for the entire spectrum of vascular and non-vascular neurointerventions. We work in close collaboration with the Stroke Program, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Spine Surgery, and ENT. We are specialists in handling acute stroke, atherosclerosis, ruptured and non-ruptured cerebral aneurysms, AVMs & dAVF of the brain and spine, head & neck tumors, and vascular malformation embolization. Our skill set includes handling the treatment of traumatic injuries and idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Invasive testing such as for parathyroid & Cushing's disease, preoperative Wada testing, spinal procedures as well as consultations and triaging complement the services delivered. The services we provide are as follows:
- All endovascular interventions for brain, head & neck and spine

Peer Review Audits
Vancouver Imaging has conducted Peer Review Audits for multiple Health Authorities. We have a distinguished reputation for conducting audits with the highest discretion. Due to their training, our radiologists are knowledgeable on best practices and can provide a fair and objective peer review.
Vancouver Imaging has a reputation for supplying high-quality radiology service on a 24/7/365 basis. We have the IT expertise to develop a teleradiology solution that meets our customers needs. Our IT infrastructure integrates with the client’s PACS/RIS to minimize manual workflow steps and provide reliable end-to-end reporting. Our radiologists can utilize both remote transcriptionist-based medical transcription services and speech recognition services to deliver reports within the required timeframes. Our custom-built electronic protocoling software works with our clients’ front-office team to minimize CT/MR protocol turnaround time and help improve patient throughput.
Computed Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging Protocol Consulting & Dose Reduction
Vancouver Imaging radiologists have years of experience in a multivendor (Siemens, GE, Toshiba, Philips) environment and can work with clients to improve image quality, minimize radiation dose, and reduce scan times. Our latest research into scan protocols using Artificial Intelligence on the newest-generation CT hardware has yielded diagnostic-quality CT scans of the chest and abdomen at a lower dose than radiography. We can help you maximize your modality duty cycle and reduce patient radiation exposure.
