Disrupting India’s radiology diagnosis by making radiologists accessible to India’s masses

Radiology is the most used method for diagnosis in India. The need for radiologists is growing across India. It is a country with over 10,000 radiologists. While this might seem like a considerable number, the upsurge in chronic diseases and a few other factors are increasing the demand for radiologists across the country. While technology is in place, technicians are the need of the hour, especially for India’s masses. People across Tier 2, Tier 3 and beyond, need to regularly travel to cities that have access to the latest diagnosis options for treatment.

Doctors all over the country are increasingly depending on radiology for an accurate understanding of a patient’s problem. Yet with this growing demand, India is a country with about 10,000 radiologists; most in urban areas, thereby leaving a large deficit in a patient to radiologist ratio.
