The Department of Neuroradiology at National Neuroscience Institute (NNI), provides subspecialised neuroradiology service to both inpatients and outpatients, and also to referrals from both private clinics and hospitals.
The Department is equipped with a wide range of advanced neuro-imaging equipment, all dedicated to producing high quality images of the brain and spine. It includes three advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanners; two 1.5 Telsa and a high field 3T scanner, two multi-slice Computed Tomography scanners and a biplane Neuro-Angiographic DSA unit.
It also has a modern Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) to archive and retrieve imaging data and radiological reports. This system enables access to previous studies for comparison with the current examination.
At present, this Department remains the only Singapore institute and one of a small number of worldwide sites capable of comprehensive 24-hour Stroke Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) service. A rapid 24-hour Computed Tomography (CT) scanning service is in place for traumatic and vascular studies, including CT angiography and perfusion.
