Monthly newsletter by IRIA Kochi Chapter

Dear colleagues,

It is our great honour ‘The Kochi Chapter of IRIA’ to bring you this first eNewsletter. The

chapter came into existence in 2011, and at present we have more than hundred members

including provisional student members. As per IRIA guidelines we have been conducting

regular meetings, CME’s and conferences. We are one of the most

active chapters in India and always try to create a sense of Presidents Column

community, by organizing social gatherings.

Kochi is proud to have certain centers of excellence in the field of
medicine, with highly talented radiologists. Kochi Chapter aims with
our eNewsletters to communicate regularly with all members of IRIA
in Kerala and elsewhere. Our aim is to also promote scientific aware
ness in the field of imaging and provide mentorship to young

We hope that our humble endeavour will benefit the Radiology Dr. M. R. Balachandran Nair
community. President

Wishing you all a great time ahead. IRIA Kochi Chapter

Message: Dr. Amel Antony, National IRIA Vice President

It's a matter of great pride that Kochi Chapter of IRIA is bringing out a Newsletter -
probably the first City Chapter to do so across the nation.

Newsletters showcase the activities and it's evident that Kochi Chapter is so vibrant
and dynamic to require an entire newsletter. The Central IRIA is happy to
acknowledge the academic and professional pursuits of Kochi Chapter and hope that
other Chapters will emulate this model. Afterall the strength of IRIA is firmly rooted in
the dynamism and commitment of its members and City Chapters are the smallest
units to channelise this in the right direction.

Let me take this opportunity to congratulate Dr MR Balachandran Nair for his effective
leadership and immense energy that has made it possible.

Best wishes to Kochi Chapter of IRIA on this glorious
occasion and let your enthusiasm and commitment to IRIA
shine through the clouds of self doubts and 'blame IRIA'
attitude of some of our members.

Dr. Amel Antony
Vice President, IRIA

Kochi Chapter Monthly Meeting - May 2019, Report

The Kochi Chapter of IRIA held its monthly meeting on
the 28th of May, 2019 at IMA House. In keeping with the
theme of National IRIA outreach programme, Dr.
Manisha Joshi, (Consultant Neuroradiologist &
Interventional Radiologist) from Rajagiri Hospital, spoke
on role of Interventional Radiology in brain and spine.
She highlighted the importance of IR in management of
stroke and various vascular abnormalities including
aneurysms. An other interesting application was IR as a
solution for chronic SDH. The post graduates had many
queries and Dr. Manisha impressed the audience with
her in-depth knowledge, clinical acumen and clarity of
approach. Above all, the session was so inspiring and
motivating for the post graduates to consider taking up IR
as a career.
