Medical technology and innovation continue to drive change in the anesthesia work environment. One area of rapid growth is interventional neuroradiology (INR). The number, variety and complexity of conditions that can be treated in pediatric and adult patients continue to expand (Table 1). This discipline is a chimera of neurosurgery, neurology and radiology. It has the potential to offer cures and palliative care for a wide range of disease processes that were only amenable to surgical intervention in the recent past. INR is now a part of every neurosurgeon’s residency training. The proceduralist, however, may be a neurosurgeon, a neurologist or a radiologist.
