Although there has been a reduction in cerebral angiographic (33%), pneumoencephalographic (70%) and radionuclide brain scanning (28%) investigations since the introduction of computerized tomography in South Australia, there has been a significant increase (56%) in the total number of neuroradiological investigations performed. At the same time, the number of patients who underwent neuroradiological investigations has risen by 75%. This is equivalent to approximately one person in every 290 per year.
