Introduction

Department of Radio-Diagnosis is functioning since the inception of college, in the earlier years the department used to function in the Zonal Hospital, Dharmshala, with the scarcity of the space and infrastructure, still computed tomography and sonography facilities were available. The hospital shifted to the campus build in Tanda in 2007-08 and began providing routine as well as emergency radiology services i.e. USG, color Doppler, CT, MRI, interventional image guided procedure, X-rays and fluoroscopic are being provided to the public. The department is situated in the ground floor of treatment block of the hospital. Almost all the present day imaging modalities are available in the department. We have been doing almost all image guided interventional radiological procedures in the department. We started with the DNB Radio-Diagnosis course in 2002 with two students which gradually increased to six students being admitted at present in addition we are running MD Radio-Diagnosis (recognized) admitting five student per year. We are also running B.Sc. radiology courses in the department admitting 10 students per year. We are also training the MBBS student in the radiology as per latest MCI teaching module giving them requisite exposure in USG, CT and MRI.

We have been carrying out research work in the department and publishing the research work in the journals of national and international repute. We are exposing the faculty and residents to the various CMEs throughout country and also been organizing conferences and training programmers in the institute itself. We are growing leap and bound as a department and trying our best to keep pace with the ever growing field of radiology. All this is possible due to continuous and sustained efforts of previous Heads of the Department; Dr. NK Kaushik, Dr. DS Dhiman, Dr. SL Sharma, Dr, Asha Negi and Dr. RG Sood.
