Neuroimaging is an essential part of diagnosis and to study in the area of Neurology and Neuroscience. It is an addition to a clinical and cognitive evaluation in the assessments of cognitive, behavioral and neurological disorders. Neuroimaging or brain imaging is to image the structure, function, and pharmacology of the nervous system mainly the brain and spinal cord.

Neuroradiologists are the one who specializes in neuroimaging techniques. Neuroimaging or brain imaging is a new discipline in medicine, neuroscience, and psychology to study the changes during various neurological and psychological conditions.

Neuroimaging can be classified into two major parts:                           

1. Structural Imaging: It deals with the structure of the nervous system and to diagnose intracranial disease and injury

2. Functional Imaging: It is used for research purposes: neurological and psychology and building brain-computer interface through cognitive neuroscience. It is also used to diagnose metabolic disease on a finer scale.
