We have made a sincere attempt to create a platform for fetal radiology in India under the aegis of IRIA & ICRI,the result of which is evident in the familiarisation of the subspeciality of fetal radiology amongst IRIA members and other specialists. We have nurtured a pool of experts and speakers on the subject whose numbers are increasing day by day. We are confident to create a niche for fetal radiology in India in the years to come with india specific database, research and the focus on reduction of maternal mmortality and perinatal mortality.
We thank the ICRI Chairman Dr.Jayaraj Govindraj, ICRI Secretary Dr.Varaprasad Vemuri for the continous support and encouragement we have received during this period.We would also like to record our gratitude to the IRIA National leadership under President Dr.Mohanan, Secretary General Dr.Amarnath and President Elect Dr.Hemant Patel whose guidance and blessings were a constant source of encouragement during this period.We hope ,with the foundation laid by this team, may the future team build a superstructure ,perfect in its parts and honourable to IRIA and ICRI.
