Radiology is that branch of science where scientists use x-rays to see the inside of the human body. Radiologists utilize an array of imaging technologies (such as ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)) to diagnose or treat diseases.
The Department of Radiology in VMU works during the routine timings while also attending to emergency cases round-the-clock. Technicians are posted for this very purpose. X–ray units, the ultrasound machine and CT scan machine are some of the equipment available in the department. Special investigations like the myelogram, USG and CT guided procedures are also undertaken. There is the regular participation in VINCLISCI (a Clinical Scientific Society) meetings in coordination with the clinical departments.
