Biography – Dr. Nupe Singhal

Pediatric Radiology, Teleradiology CAQ-Pediatric RadiologyDr. Singhal started his professional career with Texas Radiology Associates in 1989 and found his niche. He graduated with honors from Harvard College and made the Dean’s list each semester. He completed a senior thesis on the use of logistic regression in the analysis of medical data at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Singhal then graduated from the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in Montreal, Quebec. He finished a radiology residency at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, serving as chief resident in his final year. Dr. Singhal served as a fellow in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology at The University of Western Ontario, in London, Ontario. This is a pioneering location for the treatment of intracranial vascular lesions. Dr. Charles Drake started and built the neurosurgery department, and the interventional neuroradiology division rose to equal heights supporting it. Dr. Singhal is a diplomate of the American Board of Radiology and a senior member of the American Society of Neuroradiology.

Currently, Dr. Singhal performs diagnostic neuroradiology and also selected interventional neuroradiology procedures. One of his major interests is the cement stabilization of spinal fractures, having performed over 1200 procedures, from as far cephalad as the T2 level, to as low as the sacrum (over 60 sacroplasties). His goal is to truly make the procedure as safe and minimally invasive as possible. In this year, he intends to add thermal tumor ablation to cement stabilization procedures, when applicable.

Dr. Singhal is on the Medical Executive Committee for the Medical Center of Plano for the 2013-2014 session. He is also heavily involved in optimizing the diagnostic imaging of stroke patients brought to the Medical Center of Plano with analytical studies beginning. Dr. Singhal has performed intracranial vascular interventions, and he will help provide the coverage needed for acute stroke rescue. It is the epitome of a team effort.

Dr. Singhal believes that the rewards of his profession come from helping the patient and the patient’s family select and achieve the best possible outcome for whatever medical issue that has befallen them.

When not working, Dr. Singhal and his wife are raising two young boys.
