Neuroradiology Education

The Department of Neuroradiology provides imaging support for the National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) and performs advanced interventional radiological procedures.  Close interaction with the Departments of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuropathology, Anaesthesia, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology and Paediatrics, provides unique exposure to a firm educational foundation in allied neurological sciences.  A wide range of clinical material is available and provides a rich clinical teaching and learning environment due to our multi-referral sources with scans ranging from emergent to esoteric cases.

Training Programme

For basic and advanced specialty training, the Department of Neuroradiology offers a unique, dedicated neuroradiology module for residency and fellowship rotations. The trainees will be participating fully in the operations of the department, focusing on neurological diseases.  The clinical training includes the full range of diagnostic neuroradiology procedures, advanced imaging such as CTA and MRA, CT and MR perfusion, CSF flow studies, multivoxel MRS, fMRI and DTI, as well as opportunities to be involved in interventional neuroradiology procedures.

The training programme includes:

  • Core lectures;
  • Daily readouts;
  • Journal reviews;
  • Teaching files; and
  • Core skills such as presentation and medical writing are also emphasised.

The trainees will be fully engaged in performing and interpreting all examinations and procedures, as well as consulting with referring physicians, attending working and academic conferences, and pre- and post-procedure visits with patients.  The trainees are encouraged to participate and contribute at local, regional, and international clinical radiological meetings.

Medical students are exposed to neuroradiology during the neurological part of the radiology posting as well as the imaging part of the neurology posting.  Elective medical students from local and overseas medical schools have opportunities to have more in-depth learning and longer attachments to the neuroradiology department.
 The Department of Neuroradiology is also heavily involved in the training of radiographers, hosting training rotations of local and international students, as well as encouraging skills and knowledge upgrading by attending courses such as the annual Advanced Neuroradiology Course.

Advanced Neuroradiology Course

The Department of Neuroradiology is committed to providing high standards of education in Academic Medicine. The annual Advanced Neuroradiology Course was started in 1999 with the aim of furthering Neuroradiology education. Over the years, the course has grown in scope and it now includes diagnostic, interventional neuroradiology as well as Head and Neck radiology, with highly distinguished local and overseas faculty providing updates and advances in neuroradiology.
