Foundation of Radiology department can be traced back to the establishment of our reputed Organization Shahid Gangalal National Heart Center in 1995. At the start, the department was located in main OPD block which is now in new OPD block and IPD block of the center. Being the backbone of any health care centre, the department plays a vital role in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac patients.
