DEPARTMENT OF RADIODIAGNOSIS

The Department of Radiodiagnosis & Imaging at GMC and New Civil Hospital, Surat is renowned all over Gujarat for the numerous diagnostic imaging services it offers. With the expertise and vast experience of our faculty members and dedication of resident doctors, the department strives for excellence in patient care, teaching and research. An astonishing volume of imaging studies is performed in the department (more than 60000 Ultrasound scans per year and more than 6000 CT scans per year). Exposure to a wide variety of pathologies, along with didactic teaching of the residents makes our radiology residency program highly coveted and we pride ourselves in producing excellent radiologists.
