Interventional Neuroradiologists: Interventional neuroradiologists are radiologists, neurologists and/or neurosurgeons who have received additional training in diagnosing cerebrovascular disorders using CT, MRI and cerebral angiogram imaging and in repairing brain aneurysms using minimally invasive techniques such as aneurysm coiling.

Stroke Neurologist: A neurologist is a physician who has extra training and expertise in treating conditions of the nervous system. The neurologist works closely with the emergency room physician to perform a neurologic exam on the patient who has suffered a stroke. This evaluation is critical in determining how the stroke has affected the patient and the best treatment. In addition to serving as the Medical Director of the Stroke Program at Swedish Neuroscience Institute, Dr. William Likosky is the stroke neurologist at the Cerebrovascular Center.
