Department of Radio-diagnosis is one of the oldest department of S.D.M.H. and has been an integral part of its developmental growth. Department of Radio-diagnosis delivers an enormous amount of workload every day that includes routine & special X-rays of all kinds, sonographies ranging from routine to all gynaecological & obstetric studies, soft tissue, vascular Doppler studies and interventional procedures as a routine.
