Department of Radiology

Background History

Department of Radiology

The radiology department is one of the largest teaching departments in India both in terms of clinical services provided and the radiology residency training program. The department examines over 160,000 patients each year. All forms of diagnostic and interventional radiological procedures including sophisticated vascular and neuro interventional procedures are performed. The department has a very active teaching schedule for residents besides conducting refresher courses; it also provides opportunity for Observer ship for those from other departments and elsewhere in the state and country. The department boasts one of the best departmental book libraries in the country with over 800 volumes and an exhaustive film and electronic teaching media library.


We welcome all our alumni to this meeting ground and sincerely hope that this site will help you to renew your ties with The Department. You may have been here at these institutions just a few years ago or a few decades ago – but all of us are from the same breed – Radiologists trained at KEM.

Since your times…whenever it was…things have changed!! and those of still here relish our days past, look forward to the days in future striving at all times to keep the department flag flying high. To be able to do this we need your support in…many ways…but in one most important way…please keep in touch. That is one of the very reasons this website is there so we can interact with our alumni…all over the world…and use their suggestions and inputs to make this department stand apart from the rest. I am sure in the true GS tradition most of us will be interested in the Alumni activities not as much ‘to get’ but much more ‘to give’ to our Alma Mater.

We urge you to become members of the G.S. Alumni Association…submitting this form. For those of you who need and can, membership of the GOSUMEC Alumni association entails you to the free use of the College Library which is reasonably well stocked with books and journals. Besides, you will be delighted to know that we have setup an electronic teaching library of all modalities in radiology in the department. You may want to visit and use it.

We now come to the ‘giving’ part. There is a lot each of us individually and collectively do to help the department. As times have gone by the funding to the department’s teaching and clinical activities has become precarious with help being need in several areas both in cash and kind. You can contribute to this and all help in whatever form will be welcome. If you wish to get involved please drop in a line at this address with what you have in mind and we could start working on it.

And finally…if you are anywhere near Parel… or passing by, please take time out to drop in the department even if only Deshi and the techs and the good old ward boys are the only ones who will recognize you!!!! Come have a cup of Tea at the KEM Canteen Katta…

“Please take a moment to let us know you have been here by filling this form so that we can keep in touch”. We soon hope to be able to develop a database of all our alumni so that you can communicate with your long lost friends.

Interventional Case Records

The Department of Radiology at the Seth GS Medical College and King Edward Memorial (KEM) hospital, Mumbai is the pioneering department of Interventional Radiology in India and has been in the forefront of image guided interventions (general vascular, non vascular and neurovinterventions) in the country.

The cases on this page, represent a sampling of the wide variety of Interventional radiological procedures practiced in the department. From time to time, we will be adding new cases to this page.

We hope these cases will be use both to physicians wanting to refer patients and those patients who are looking for a high volume center to treat their problems by interventional radiological techniques.
