4.A two year post graduate diploma in radio diagnosis and imaging by BHU Varanasi

Darshan Pariksha may do with many tools like Nadi Yantra etc. The Vikiran Avum Chhaya (Radiology and Imaging), the most efficient and non-invasive diagnostic tool, is also a tool for Darshan Pariksha.
The basic aim of Radiology was already in existence in Ayurveda. Now a days there is lack of teaching and training of Radio-diagnosis in medical graduates and Post Graduates. So it is necessary to propagate the knowledge of Radio-diagnosis amongst medical graduates to understand the Ayurvedic context, to enhance the knowledge of Student for the help of suffering peoples, to evaluate the effectiveness of indigenous drugs for global acceptance of Ayurveda.
