Medical imaging is used to diagnose and treat diseases within the living bodies. A variety of imaging techniques such as radiation-based modalities i.e. plain radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), magnetism-based modality i.e. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, are used to diagnose or treat diseases. Interventional radiology is the performance of usually minimally invasive medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies.
This department was first time introduced in 2011 by the founder Dean of Allied health Sciences Prof. Dr. Syed Amir Gilani in the University of Lahore and developed at a glance to one of the huge departments of this University.
Till date we have more than 2100 alumni graduated from this department in various courses from undergraduate to Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. We have adopted and modified our curriculum to meet our graduates to the modern challenges in learning methodologies and hospital-based challenges to face a variety of diseases in the diverse human population of the world. Currently, Dr. Raham Bacha is the head of this department under the umbrella of the Faculty of Allied Health Sciences.
