In terms of founding this website, in his words:
“Coming from where there was no talk about IR, to present day with almost 10 years of experience, it always make me feel that I should give something back to the country where I trained. The idea has been in my mind for years since I joined radiology.
Lack of information, advertisement , support from other specialties, and, often, no direct patient referral continue to make IR a basement or dark room specialty. With information layered into different pages throughout this website, I would like to allow both medical and nonprofessional people to explore different options made available by a robust IR practice. I would like to give a special thanks to my friend, colleague Dr Karuppasamy who has been like a mentor guiding me through this initial steps of new discovery. I would also like to thank my other mentors Dr Geisinger and Dr Levitin, with out whom I would not have reached where I am today and I would always be grateful to them. Finally, I would like to thank my wife and children for their enormous support and help in making this happen.”
