Radiology is a medical specialty that uses medical imaging to diagnose and treat diseases within the human body.
A variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to diagnose or treat diseases. Interventional radiology is the performance of usually minimally invasive medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Aims of this Course
- To develop highly skilled manpower in radiological technology with proper medical science background so that they can understand the purpose and theoretical basis of radi logical procedures, perform routine and specialized radiological examination by using modern equipment, operate and maintain radiological equipment and follow trends and approaches in radiological research.
- To develop the standard of education and ensure the quality of radiology and imaging technology education and also radiological practices.
- To help meet the requirements of a large number of radiological technology experts in the government, non-government hospitals and diagnostic centers in-country and all over the world.
- To control radiation hazard and ensure radiation safety by using proper knowledge for the patient, technologist and environment.

MS in Radiology & Imaging Technology
CT Scan – Computer tomography scan or more popularly known as CT scans are a non-invasive diagnostic imaging procedure utilizing a combination of computer and X-ray technology to generate accurate and detailed images of body structures including organs, blood vessels, tissues, and bones. Widely regarded as one of the most important medical developments of the past century, it is a valuable medical diagnostic tool that allows specialists to more easily and accurately diagnose diseases.
Interventional Radiology & Oncology – Interventional radiology is a cutting-edge field of medicine that uses minimally invasive approaches to treat many conditions which otherwise would require more invasive surgery. Interventional Radiologists perform these minimally invasive procedures using image guidance (X-ray, CT, ultrasound, and MRI).
MRI – MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a technique used to get detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body. It is a non-invasive, needle-free, safe procedure that uses magnetic fields or radio frequencies to generate anatomical images required for your diagnosis.
PET/CT Scan – PET/CT scan is a type of procedure that makes use of images from two technologies in determining the exact location of an abnormality in the body and consequently, detecting diseases such as cancer and other abnormalities. Positron emission tomography (PET) uses controlled amounts of a radioactive substance, called a radiotracer, in measuring cell activity in an organ or tissue.
Radionuclide Therapies – Radionuclide therapies utilize radiopharmaceutical drugs that target specific types of tumors. Releasing energy, these drugs can bring radiation to tumors in targeted doses and therefore sparing normal and healthy tissues.
Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE) – A TTE is a noninvasive ultrasound – using high-frequency soundwaves to create moving images of your heart through the chest wall. There is NO radiation when getting a TTE. A TTE gives your doctor a good view of your overall heart health.
Ultrasound – Ultrasound is one of the most popular medical imaging technologies. Utilizing sound waves, Ultrasounds can produce images of internal organs and other soft-tissue structures – including blood vessels and muscles. The high-frequency sound waes are imperceptible to the human ears and painless.
