Neuroradiology began in the early 1900s soon after Roentgen discovered x rays, with the use of skull radiographs to evaluate brain tumors. This was followed by the development of ventriculography in 1918, pneumoencephalography in 1919, and arteriography in 1927. In the beginning, air studies were the primary modality, but this technique was supplanted by angiography in the 1950s and 1960s. The first full-time neuroradiologist in the United States was Cornelius G. Dyke at the New York… 
Neuroradiology Back to the Future: Brain Imaging
TLDR
The origin and evolution of the advances that have led to the quicker, less invasive diagnosis and resulted in more rapid therapy and improved outcomes are traced.
PERSPECTIVES Neuroradiology Back to the Future: Spine Imaging
TLDR
Spine X-Rays have advanced the field of neuroradiology and improved the lives of patients via easier, safer, more rapid diagnosis and treatment.
RSNA Centennial Article: Gone but Not Completely forgotten— pictorial review of "antiquated" radiologic procedures [corrected].
TLDR
Knowledge of historic radiologic examinations and procedures is important to understand how the authors have arrived at the current practice of radiology they embrace today and how their field can continue to evolve to improve their diagnostic and therapeutic abilities to fit the changing needs of their patients.
Evolution of brain imaging instrumentation.
TLDR
Brain PET instrumentation has greatly evolved from its infancy, when it was used in regional localization, to currently providing excellent resolution with imaging characteristics that can greatly impact clinical management, and interictal PET a very reasonable alternative.
Diagnostic methods for extra-temporal neocortical focal epilepsies: present and future.
TLDR
The present study aims to analyze the possible uses of proton spectroscopy for clinical and pre-surgical evaluation of focal extratemporal epilepsies, since this group presents the highest difficulty degree for lateralizing and locating epileptogenic zones.
Localization of the Motor and Speech Zones of the Cerebral Cortex by Functional Magnetic Resonance Tomography
TLDR
Assessments of the state of the motor and speech areas by this tomographic method has potential applications in neurosurgery and neurophysiology.
Direct carotid artery access for neurointerventional procedures in infants
TLDR
Direct carotid access is a feasible and safe alternative route to treat neuroendovascular pathologies in infants and can be considered in cases of inaccessible or failed transfemoral access or in cases with severe arterial tortuosity in infants with intracranial fistulas.
Diagnostic Accuracy and Validity of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Detection of Speci!c Type of Brain Tumour
TLDR
Evaluated the convenience of MRI in detection of di$erent grades of astrocytomas, which are the most commonly occurring brain tumours, and found highest sensitivity was found in grade III astroCytoma.
Accuracy of MRI in Defining Tumor-Free Margin in Optic Nerve Glioma Surgery
TLDR
Unilateral optic nerve gliomas limited to the prechiasmatic nerve on MRI not infrequently extend beyond the MRI borders, of significance when considering management options, particularly surgical resection.
Comparison of T2 and FLAIR imaging for target delineation in high grade gliomas
TLDR
The results show that the volumes generated using both T2 and FLAIR MRI sequences are different and not interchangeable and have bearing on the use of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and highly conformal treatment as well as on future clinical trials where the bias of using one technique over the other may influence the study outcome.

VENTRICULOGRAPHY FOLLOWING THE INJECTION OF AIR INTO THE CEREBRAL VENTRICLES
THE value of rontgenography in the diagnosis and localization of intracranial tumors is mainly restricted to the cases in which the neoplasm has affected the skull. In an analysis of the X-ray
Computer Assisted Tomography of Intracranial CSF Circulation Using a Water-Soluble Contrast Medium
TLDR
This method is regarded as indispensable in the examination of patients with disturbances of CSF dynamics, especially those with communicating hydrocephalus, however, isotope cisternography is hampered by certain drawbacks.
Changes in Local Circulation Time in Frontal and Parietal Tumors Studied by Rapid Serial Angiography
TLDR
The angiographic demonstration of local slowing of circulation is of value in the diagnosis of brain tumors and dynamic changes in circulatory changes are analyzed to evaluate their relative incidence.
Magnetic resonance of the brain: the optimal screening technique.
TLDR
It is concluded that the long TR multisection spin-echo sequence is the optimal MR screening technique for detection of most brain abnormalities, and is more sensitive than CT.
Computerized tomography and angiography in subarachnoid haemorrhage.
TLDR
The study of 100 multiple aneurysm cases shows that 66 survivied the initial danger period either with surgery, or by conservative treatment, and that treatment confined to the lesion which is responsible for the subarachnoid haemorrhage is not an unreasonable policy in the large majority of these patients.

TLDR
The conclusion is reached that rapid serial angiography is of value in practical neuro-radiologic work and must be compared with another method of measuring the circulation time.
Precentral Cerebellar Vein in Angiography
TLDR
A specific vein rather constantly seen during vertebral angiography is described, which has not been clearly described in either the anatomical or the radiologic literature, which originates in the precentral cerebellar fissure.
Serial magnification cerebral angiography.
TLDR
The authors are currently performing serial roentgenographic magnification studies in cerebral angiography and consider it a valuable supplement to the examination of the intracranial vasculature.
Imaging of tumors of the spinal canal and cord.
TLDR
In view of the ability of multiplanar MR to demonstrate neoplasms that affect the spinal cord, the use of sedation and pain medication protocols appears justified.
Gd-DTPA-enhanced MR imaging of pituitary adenomas.
TLDR
Eleven previously nonoperated patients with suspected pituitary microadenomas were scanned on a 1.5-T GE system before and after administration of IV gadolinium-DTPA, allowing contrast between the enhancing normal glandular tissue and low-intensity microadenoma.
