The role of neuroradiology in the diagnosis of neuropathologic conditions continues to grow with the advancement of modern technology. Cross-sectional imaging, including computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, has revolutionized the diagnostic approach to pathology of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Newer advanced imaging techniques, including functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, and perfusion imaging, provide new valuable information that facilitates diagnosis and monitors response to therapy. Familiarity with neuroradiology imaging studies and basic neuroimaging patterns is therefore invaluable to the practicing neuropathologist, and the neuroradiologist and neuropathologist should work together to provide clinically useful information.
