The West Virginia University Cranial Base Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment, bringing together the skills of neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, ophthalmologists, plastic surgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, radiation oncologists, and others to provide advanced comprehensive care.
Advances in diagnostic technology have greatly increased physicians’ ability to pinpoint problems in the cranial base and to develop a precise treatment plan. WVU’s Center for Advanced Imaging has the latest imaging technologies – including PET, 3.0 Tesla MRI, high resolution CT angiography, SPECT, and others – that provide highly accurate images of the brain.
Highly Advanced Treatment
The Center offers multi-faceted approaches to treating cranial base disorders, ranging from medical and surgical management to neurointerventional techniques, reconstructive surgery, and advanced radiation therapy including the use of the Gamma Knife.
