Future Plans

The department intends to provide a regular and sustained clinical service to patients with acute brain stroke, like thrombolysis, angioplasty and stenting, endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms, AVMs and fistulae.The department has reached a state of excellence in Neuroimaging.  This has been possible with MR imaging opening up new research areas like functional imaging spectroscopy.  Addition of research capabilities like Single Photon Emission Tomography and Positron Emission Tomography would provide a major thrust in basic and clinical brain research.

1.      Initiation of Molecular imaging services

2.      Addition of new therapeutic services like pain management and stroke interventions.

3.      Increasing the number of seats in DM.

4.      Starting PDF programmes in diagnostic neuroradiology, functional imaging and interventional radiology.
