Radio-Diagnosis, Imaging & Interventional Radiology
The Radio-diagnosis department was started way back in 2001 with permission to start medical college. The start of the department was with one 300mA X-Ray unit and one B/W portable USG unit and now boasts of a fully equipped and modernized imaging department catering to patient and clinician needs in diagnostic imaging and image guided diagnostic procedures including interventional Radiology. Infrastructure: In terms of equipment: The department has recently installed most advanced 3 Tesla MRI that performs MRI within 2 Minutes, CT scanner (160 Slice),Work Stations (Total 6 + 2 Console), diagnostic X-ray equipments with IITV facility (Total units 6 fixed and 8 portable), Ultrasound, color Doppler, 3D-4D USG and Digital Mammography unit, CR system with DW camera ( Three CR with DV camera), DR system (Flat Panel Detectors) and Digital subtraction angiography unit (DSA). Feathers to cap are added with addition of discovery RT planning CT with wide bore and automated tools for advanced planning.
• Investigations include conventional Radiography including special procedures of any type.
• All types of CT including Cardiac CT scan,
• 3 Tesla MRI &
• 3D- 4D Ultrasonography including guided FNAC & Biopsies.
• Color Doppler

• Digital Mammography.
The department gives round the clock diagnostic and emergency services to cater the needs of urban and rural population in the region, in and around Meerut city of Western Uttar Pradesh. The diagnostic services are provided 24*7 hours at reasonable rates Academic and research activities go simultaneously with the health delivery system of medical colleges.
Interventional radiology is a specialty that performs minimally invasive treatments using radiologic imaging for procedure guidance. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time, compared to open surgery. Interventional radiologists use x-rays, CT, MRI or other imaging guidance to navigate small instruments through blood vessels and organs to treat a variety of diseases. Examples of treatments administered by interventional radiologists include angioplasty, stenting thrombolysis, embolization, image-guided thermal ablation, and biopsies. These minimally invasive treatments can cure or alleviate symptoms of vascular disease, stroke, uterine fibroids, or cancer.
