Dear Esteemed Members,

Season’s Greetings!

It gives me immense pleasure to communicate with you through Indian Journal of Radiology and Imaging, as the President of IRIA.

I have been associated with the journal since the last two decades as a reviewer and as a member of its editorial board. I feel a tremendous sense of pride that it is now a widely respected and read, PubMed indexed Radiology journal across the world.

First of all, I want to congratulate IRIA Gujarat chapter, for a successful National Conference in Gandhinagar. Everything from the academic sessions to the hospitality was perfect.

Being President IRIA to me means striving for the betterment of IRIA and its members. It means positive contribution at all times. I intend to continue the legacy of IRIA. I RIA constitution has two main objectives. One is to promote the study and practice of diagnostic radiological and imaging modalities. Other is to protect and preserve the interest and welfare of its members. I shall continue to be dedicated in the same way, as I have demonstrated my commitment towards the organisation as well as the radiologist fraternity over the years, whether at State, ICRI, or IRIA level.

During my tenure key points in my agenda would be as follows
