Other Achievements and Awards

This college is having separate radiology departments for both the hospitals i.e. GMCH Miraj and PVPGH Sangli with all modern diagnostic modalities including 128 slice CT scan machine, MRI scan, computerized radiography, two colour Doppler ultrasonography units. Image guided procedures ara routinely carried out. Purchase for mammography compatible computerised radiography system, high end colour Doppler and DR system is in process.
