The Institute of Radiology and Medical Imaging (IRMI) was established in the year 1988. It is the oldest institute to offer Diploma in Diagnostic Radiography Course (DRD-Tech).Over the last 30 years of its existence, we have had many batches of students who have graduated from the institute.They have found successful careers in many premier government and private hospitals.
IRMI was founded by eminent radiologist Late Prof. (Dr.) Satyabrata Bose (ex-Principal National Medical College, Kolkata and Head of the Dept. of Radiology, Calcutta Medical College) along with a dedicated team of doctors.It was established primarily with a welfare outlook, so as to enable students to pursue a career in Radiography. The course was totally free. No tuition fee was charged from students.
IRMI was shifted to AMRI Hospital Dhakuria at the initiative of Prof. Bose.He insisted that students should receive practical training in all the branches of Radiology.
In 2013 IRMI was shifted to its present location Institute of Neurosciences Kolkata. The entire training programme is conducted at the premises of the super specialty hospital Institute of Neurosciences Kolkata (I-NK). Practical training is given in X-ray, Ultrasound, CT Scan and MRI at the Imaging Department of the Institute of Neurosciences.Theoretical classes are conducted through lectures by eminent teachers.
Both practical and theoretical aspects of the programme are coordinated with great care and supervision. Regular attendance is compulsory. The State Medical Faculty of West Bengal conducts the examination and also awards diploma to the successful candidates.
We strictly follow all the parameters set by the State Medical Faculty like Government hospitals. All the qualified technologists find job in hospitals as soon as they complete their Internship.
