HISTORY OF DIWAN CHAND GROUP

Diwan Chand Satya Pal Aggarwal Imaging Research Centre is the oldest and largest radiology centre in India. Established in 1924 by Dr. Diwan Chand Aggarwal,  in Lahore, now in Pakistan , the clinic has been the leader in using modern technology and most up-to-date equipment throughout it's history. In the 30s, the clinic was the first to acquire the Coolidge tube, rotating anode tube, full rectification through valves, and then selenium rectifiers, which were the latest developments in Radiology in those days.

After suffering a temporary setback due to India 's partition, in 1947, Dr Diwan Chand Aggarwal moved from Lahore to Delhi . He was joined by his son Dr. Satyapal Aggarwal and through their combined grit and determination, they were able to re-establish the glory of the clinic. 

In the early 1960s, Dr Diwan Chand Aggarwal's youngest son, Dr. Sudarshan Kumar Aggarwal joined the practice, after completing his radiology education in England . The clinic went on to make continued progress in the following years, inspite of Dr Diwan Chand Aggarwal's demise in 1967. The clinic was one of the earliest users of Image Intensifiers and ultrasound in the country, and also one of the first centres in private practice to install a whole body CT scan.

After the untimely death of Dr Satya pal Aggarwal, in 1989, Dr Sudarshan Kumar Aggarwal propelled Diwanchand to new heights by acquiring state of the art equipment and a team of qualified and experienced Radiologists. Over the decade the centre has maintained its leadership position & gave itself a corporate identity from a partnership firm to Diwanchand Medical Services Pvt. Ltd (DCMS). We continue to exceed expectations, provide quality diagnosis & maintain our unsurpassed patient focus. Today the centre can boast of State of the art 64-Slice CT scan, 1.5 Tesla MR, PET-CT, Mammography units, Dexa , CR (Computed Radiography). As part of the expansion plans Diwanchand has branched out to new centres at Shanti Mukund Diwanchand Imaging Centre in East Delhi, PSRI-Diwanchand Imaging Centre in South Delhi.
