HOD Message

In April 2011, we started working as a separate campus of The University of Lahore at 626-Shadman -1, Lahore and offered basic courses in Ultrasound, PGD in Ultrasound and M.Phil in 5 parallel tracks in Ultrasound & DMRD for the MBBS in the first phase under the umbrella of The University of Lahore. Later in September 2011 it also introducedBS in Medical Imaging Technology and Certification, Diploma, B.Sc, M.Sc. in Medical Ultrasound Technology. This campus was then merged into the university as University Institute of Radiological Sciences & Medical Imaging Technology (UIRSMIT) in Feb.2012.

We have established this department keeping in view of the rapid advancement and use of Imaging Technology in the Radiology Department of a hospital. Radiology department is the back bone of any hospital equipped with latest and Hi-Tech Machines like CT, MRI, X-Rays, Mammography, Angiography, Ultrasound Machines, and Color Doppler etc as a good diagnostic setup guarantees the quality of patient care in a hospital.

We have also signed a MOU with the international university of Dubrovnik, Croatia under the leadership of Prof.Asim Kurjack a name for quality education and research in Obgyn Ultrasound in the world, for advance courses in Obstetrical and Gynecological Ultrasound, Fetal Medicine and Perinatology.

In addition, the medical diagnostic ultrasound is believed to be a diagnostic tool which is replacing the stethoscope of a physician regardless of the field, the physician has chosen as his profession. Due to diversity of medical sciences there are different tracks even then the Physicians cannot cope with rapid advancement in the computerized technologies unless they chose the option of upgrading their knowledge with updated knowledge including clinical as well as diagnostic advances. Medical Imaging especially Ultrasound, CT & MRI curriculum should be aligned with new technology and national or regional.
