Centre for Neuroimaging and Radiodiagnosis


Girindra Shekhar Bose Centre for Neuroimaging and Radiological Sciences

One of the oldest X-ray machines in the city was installed at the Institute. A very modern radiology department with facility for sophisticated cerebral angiography, pneumoencephalography, air ventriculography, myelography etc. was established in 1954.The Girindra Shekhar Bose Centre for Neuroimaging and Radiological Sciences at the Central Institute of Psychiatry caters to the various imaging requirements of neuropsychiatry patients referred from the outpatient department as well as in patients. This modernized department has facilities for computed Radiography, whole body Ultrasound and Doppler, Cranial Doppler, 16 slice Spiral Computed Tomography scan (CT scan). Procurement of a 3.0 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner with fMRI capability is underway. On commissioning, the MRI facility will facilitate research in the fields of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in neurological and psychiatric disorders. The department is an asset to the institute.

Presently the faculty in the department consists of an assistant professor, a specialist medical officer and a senior resident. Post graduate students in psychiatry regularly visit the department for their academic and research purposes.
