KIDS Observes International Radiology Day –2021


The International Radiology Day was observed at Kalinga Institute of Dental Sciences (KIDS), Bhubaneswar on 8th November 2021. On this day in 1895, Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered x-rays by chance while investigating cathode rays, effectively laying the foundation for the medical discipline of radiology. This discovery would grow to include various methods of imaging and establish itself as a crucial element of modern medicine. The 8th of November was eventually chosen as the appropriate day to mark the celebrations which are observed by radiological societies the world over.

The event was organized by the Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology in the Dental Auditorium, KIDS. The undergraduate students and interns attended the programme in large numbers. An informative video presentation about the history and evolution of x-rays and the importance of radiology in today’s medical scenario was demonstrated to the audience. The gathering was addressed by Dr. Jugajyoti Pathi, Assistant Director, KIDS and Dr. Aswini Kumar Kar, Principal.
