Two articles of FORUM viz. "Factory of Poor Radiologists" and "Demise of Department of Radiology" regarding state of affairs of Department of Radiology , Medical College, Baroda (SSG Hospital) attracted my attention on this important issue.Some centres /Departments are very good at some point of time with vibrant atmosphere and a lot of academic activities.But as is true with any organisation it is also a dynamic thing and may change its character gradually or suddenly. This is more true in case of a Government run Medical Colleges. Another issue is vigilant monitoring of the equipment health. Transfer of Teachers(they being Government employees) for opening new Medical Colleges in the state can lead to sudden fall in academic activity and /or machine maintenance.High turnover of junior Radiology teachers also may change character of Department if a constant guidance from a senior Teacher is not available.
