About the Department

Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research Institute had its inception in 1985, a private, self-financing not for profit institution and was dedicated to serving the society as a centre of excellence with the emphasis on medical education, research and health care.  Due to its academic excellence, Government of India has granted Deemed University status in the year 1994.  An inter-institutional alliance between SRMC & RI and Harvard Medical Institute; the USA in the year 1997 enhanced its visibility in the international level.  The institute offers a large number of medical and allied courses at the postgraduate level and at the undergraduate level in medical, dental, pharmacy, nursing and allied health sciences.  The institute has vast infrastructure comprising two million square feet of constructed area with several national and internationally renowned faculties and a wide variety of modern equipment.
The addition of 3D Rotational DSA facility has resulted in a quantum leap in invasive diagnostic and interventional procedures in the previous 8 – 10 years and established this centre an area of excellence in neuro & vascular interventional procedures in the country.
The institute fulfils its objective of creating a center of excellence for providing tertiary medical care, teaching and research of the highest order by providing these facilities by the careful amalgamation of technology with experience of experts.  Dependable super specialties in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology can become a key figure for super specialities such as neurosurgery, neurology, stroke units in interpreting, managing several complex disease related to neurosciences. This is particularly relevant as there is drift in the management of ischemic and haemorrhagic stroke towards minimally invasive interventional procedures in a country like India where the mortality, morbidity and disease burden associated with stroke for the individual, and for a nation as a whole is very high. With the current developments in super speciality hospitals in the country, there is a huge gap between the supply and demand of such specialist. But to develop into such superspecialist careful structured training is essential which could to a great extent bypass learning curve to prevent untoward complications.
Since the imaging science is also progressing in the last decade,  both in CT, MRI, fusion imaging like PET / CT, interpretation, skill development and clinical relevance to imaging choices and studies become extremely challenging. The department of Radiology at SRMC has all the imaging modalities, adequately trained super specialist in neuro-radiology who has proficiencies in neuroimaging and neuro intervention.
