Oral Medicine and Radiology

About Department

The introduction of advanced radiographic techniques and the incorporation of computers in every day functioning, use of projection slides, computerized images, etc. have proved to be a boon in diagnosis and management of patients with accuracy.

It is a matter of pride for the department to have three radiograph machines along with an OPG machine with a cephalometry attachment, General Body Radiography unit, Digital Radiography System, CR System, etc. The follow up of cases is done regularly and the records of patients are maintained as it further helps for epidemiological studies.

The Tobacco Intervention Initiative Center has been set up and it is working to increase awareness about the hazardous effects of tobacco consumption. Steps are taken to counsel the patients so that they can leave this habit. In the future the department is looking forward to start a diagnostic center for the treatment of oral cancer.
