Department of Radiology

About Us

  • The Radiology Department of the SRM Medical College Hospital has advanced imaging facilities and a team of qualified and experienced faculties.
  • The Radio Diagnosis department was established in 2006 and has since expanded to offer MD Radio diagnosis from 2011, B.Sc. Medical Imaging Technology from 2013, M.Sc. Medical Imaging Technology from 2023, and Ph.D. programs in Medical Imaging Technology from 2022
  • The department provides 24-hour service to the hospital and also involves students in diagnostic procedures. The teaching faculty, completely dedicated to this area of expertise are given the responsibility to train students.
  • The department offers various interdisciplinary research and education to Radio Diagnosis.
  • The faculty members and students present topics in Continuing Medical Education programs, Indian Radiological Association meetings, as well as state and national conferences.
  • Apart from diagnostic procedures done with MRI 1.5 Tesla, 128 slice CT, Doppler USG, and Digital X-ray, the department also provides Interventional Procedures through Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA).

Our Vision

  • “The Vision of the Department of Radiology & Medical Imaging is to be one of the best departments in providing timely, cost-efficient, and high-quality Medical Imaging and image-guided diagnosis and therapy services for a diverse patient population. Our department will also play a major and vital role in the education of medical and allied health science students, conveying the critical function that Medical Imaging and image-guided diagnosis and therapy serve in improving the outcome of the care of patients.”

Our Mission

  • “ Our Department will continue to make significant contributions in the discovery of innovative imaging technologies and image-guided therapy that make a difference in the enhancement of healthcare delivery. Our department will learn from clinical colleagues, by following up on cases and auditing the reports delivered by us which will make a difference in the enhancement of healthcare delivery.”

    A four-year program (part-time) in the RadioDiagnosis Department.



  • A simulation lab is available which will help in training students in digital subtraction angiography procedures.
  • Hands-on training for ultrasound and Doppler studies by expert faculties.
  • Dedicated workstation for reporting CT and MRI with training for postprocessing of images.
  • Hands-on training for interventional radiology procedures training.
  • Individual seminars, journal clubs, and oral paper presentations to improve teaching skills.
  • Modalities Mastery: Gain expertise in fluoroscopy, MRI, CT, mammography, and ultrasound techniques.
  • Compassion and Patience: Show empathy and patience toward patients.
  • Interventional Procedures: Learn sterile techniques and perform interventional radiography.
  • Didactic lectures with PowerPoint presentations
  • Weekly seminar and journal clubs.
  • Surprise case presentation
  • Video demonstrations
  • Self-directed learning motivates the students to take their own initiative for learning.
  • Equipment Hands-On Training: Students gain practical experience by directly interacting with radiology equipment. This hands-on approach helps them become proficient in using X-ray, CT, and MRI machines.
  • Small Group Teaching: Small groups allow for personalized attention, active participation, and collaborative learning. Students can discuss cases, ask questions, and engage in problem-solving.
  • Lecture-Based Teaching: Traditional lectures provide foundational knowledge. In the context of radiology, lectures cover topics like imaging techniques, anatomy, and pathology.
  • Flipped Classroom Teaching: This method involves pre-learning content outside of class. In radiology, students might study imaging principles independently and then apply them during interactive sessions.
  • Game-Based Learning: Using educational games or simulations to reinforce concepts. For radiology, this could involve virtual case studies, medical imaging, and diagnostic challenges, or interactive quizzes.
  • Teaching with Digital Technology: Platforms like Quizizz and Nearpod enhance engagement by incorporating quizzes, polls, and interactive content into lectures.
    • Library Access: The department maintains a library, ensuring that students have easy access to relevant materials. Whether it’s textbooks, research papers, or reference materials, having a well-stocked library is crucial for academic growth.
    • Computer Facilities: Students can utilize department computers to access online resources. This digital access opens up a world of information beyond physical books. From scholarly journals to e-books, the online realm provides a wealth of knowledge.
    • Archives and Theses: The collection of previous records and theses serves as a treasure trove for current and future students. Exploring these materials offers insights into the evolution of the field and allows students to build upon existing knowledge.
    • Assessment Materials: The department boasts an impressive collection of over 35 different equipment. These diverse tools enhance the learning process and contribute significantly to clinical training. Having access to such a variety of equipment ensures that students gain practical experience and develop essential skills.
