Neuro Radiology

About The Department

The department of Neuro Radiology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of neurovascular diseases that affect adult and pediatric patients. Gleneagles Global Hospital, Bengaluru, has state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technologies to support out highly skilled physicians. This makes it one of the best neuro radiology centers in Bengaluru for the management of conditions like strokes, cerebral aneurysms, carotid and intracranial stenosis, and dural arteriovenous fistula, among other conditions.

Technologies & Procedures

Gleneagles Global Hospital’s Department of Neuro Radiologyis equipped with state-of-the-art technology that allows our specialists to get the best results in both diagnosis and treatment of neurovascular diseases. Some of our neuro radiology department technologies include:

  • CT Scan:This remains a critical imaging tool in neuro radiology as it is helpful in evaluating the skull base and calvarium to detect signs of hyperostosis, erosion or foraminal enlargement. Additionally, the technology can differentiate soft tissue density and depict cerebral tissue effectively.
  • MRI:MRIs produce cross-sectional images, portraying brain anatomy in slice format. This makes it indispensable for studying the brain, evaluating brain tumors, and assisting doctors in the treatment of neurovascular disorders.
  • PET Scan:This technology is effective for the detection of neurotransmitter activity and it can also detect and quantify metabolic processes, making it a valuable tool in the diagnosis and treatment of cerebrovascular disease.
  • Functional MRI:This advanced imaging technique is used to examine the brain's functional anatomy, such as to evaluate effect of stroke or other conditions and to guide treatment. It can also detect brain abnormalities that are not detected with other techniques.
  • Tractography:Tractography is a tool used to enhance brain mapping, supporting information from techniques like functional MRIs, providing neurosurgeons with three-dimensional visualization of subcortical structures.
