Chairman, 68th IRIA National Conference 2015


My dear and esteemed friend,
Greetings from Kerala, the “Gods Own Country”. After the great get together of all the Radiologists in India, at Kochi for the 68th National Conference of IRIA, all of us have gone back to our daily routine. Now it is time for elections, an opportunity to elect the new office bearers of our National Association-IRIA.

During and after the National Conference many dear colleagues suggested to me to stand for the post of IRIA National President elect. With the encouragement and inspiration from the Radiology fraternity from all over India, let me humbly announce my desire to contest for the post of National President elect of IRIA in the coming elections.

I am Professor and HOD of Radio diagnosis, Govt. Medical College, Thrissur, Kerala. I have been teaching Under Graduate and Radiology Post Graduate students for the last 25 years and have published several research papers. I was the State President and State Secretary IRIA and am a member of Central Council of IRIA for the past 20 years. As a member of the Govt. of India Committee on PCPNDT I could effectively intervene and stop the entry of unqualified people coming to practice ultrasound scan with fraudulent certificates showing 6 months training. As a humble soldier of IRIA, I offer myself for the future wars in the PCPNDT issue. I hope my experience as Member of Medical Council of India, and Dean Faculty of Modern Medicine in the Kerala Health University will be useful in the many battles that we Radiology community are and will be involved in.

We have had very eminent and capable leaders in the past and at present. I salute them for their sincere leadership. I humbly request you to guide, advice and help me so that I can follow the great traditions of IRIA.
