I feel overwhelmed with the enormous progress that we have made towards skill development of the radiologists and technicians across the country through various training programs, CMEs and conferences over a short span of 7 years.

Obituary Message

Dr. Subhash Ramani (28/06/1956- 26/05/2020)

Dr. SubhashRamani was a gem of a person; friendly and helpful. He was open-hearted and had an enviably large circle of friends and well-wishers. He would always meet everyone with wholehearted warmth, no matter if one is a new acquaintance or someone known for a long. You could also call him anytime. He would always take a call and make you feel that he loved speaking to you. Being an honest person, straightforwardness was perhaps his best-known virtue. He was good at reading people and little wary of deceitful ones.  He would not hesitate to speak up his mind if needed. Occasional arguments were not unknown but it would not hold it for a long. He would let go of any difference quickly and again talk to the one involved with his same trademark joyfulness. He would never save grudges for anyone and even his critics knew this.

Much of his professional stint was in Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai, and breast imaging was his forte. He shared a very good rapport with his colleagues and especially with Dr. Meenakshi Thakur, another doyen of breast imaging in his department. Being at the best-known cancer hospital in India, this duo took the standards of breast imaging to new heights. Dr. Ramani would always keep him well versed with technological advances in mammography. For this reason, he was often an indispensable expert member of the purchase committees of most government institutions in India. He was especially passionate about quality control of breast imaging. No matter if he was interacting with an expert radiologists from a famous metropolitan center or a novice breast radiologist from a small-town hospital, he would insist on setting minimum technical and ethical standards appropriate in the given set-up. With vast experience and impeccable oratory skills, he was a much sought-after speaker for breast imaging talks across India and he would oblige as best he could. He especially loved attending CMEs in remote small towns, at times with his own expenses, and appreciate their enthusiasm for breast imaging. He would teach the basics in the way they could connect with and commensurate with the resources they have.

Dr. Ramani was one of few radiologists in India who took breast imaging as primary work a few decades ago. Being in this field for a long and because of his wide personal and professional circles, he personally knew almost every senior breast radiologist across India. whenever he noticed any young radiologist with breast imaging inclination, he would introduce himself and become close friends instantly. No wonder he was the key figure who connected most of the breast radiologists with each other and that ultimately lead to the formation of the Breast Imaging Society, India. Although he struggled for a long to bring us together and worked hard to form BISI, he always shied away from holding any top post in BISI governing council that he rightfully deserved. Most of us hoped that someday he will agree but he left us too soon. May his soul rest in peace.
