History of BSRI
The Bangladesh Society of Radiology and Imaging (BSRI) was established in the month of January 1981, nearly 10 years after the independence of our beloved nation.

The first BSRI meeting was held on the 28th of January 1981, under the chairmanship of Prof. Nazrul Islam and an ad-hoc committee of the society was formed. The second meeting took place on the 28th of February 1981; and was chaired by Late Prof. K. S. Haque (the president of the ad-hoc committee and founder president of BSRI). Key persons attending that meeting had included Late Prof. S. A. Sobhan, Late Prof. Abdus Sobhan (the then Head of the Department of Radiology, Institute of Post-Graduate Medicine and Research, Dhaka) and Late Prof. Abu Taher Amin (the Secretary General of the ad-hoc committee).

The Bangladesh Society of Radiology and Imaging was registered with the government body, under the ministry of Social Welfare (Registrations and Regulations Act 1961/46), Registration no.-Dha-02712/ 22.04.1992.

Several meetings, ample enthusiasm and the consistent efforts of Late Prof. K. S. Haque, late Prof. S. A. Shakoor, late Prof. Maksudur Rahman and many others brought about the first annual convention of BSRI, held on Thursday, the 25th of August 1983. The event took place on the conference room of IPGMR (Presently the only medical university in Bangladesh named Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, BSMMU), Dhaka, under the presidentship of Prof. K. S. Haque and Secretary General, Dr. Abdur Razzak. During the very first event the total number of society members was 40.

At present the society houses its own central office at Meherba Plaza, 33 Topkhana Road, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The BSRI also publishes a BMDC (Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council) approved journal every 6 months; the first volume being published in the July of 1993.

With the advent of rapidly advancing never-ending technology, the need for expansion of Radiology became a necessity. Accordingly, under the dynamic leadership of Prof Syed Mizanur Rahman (President of BSRI) and Prof M Enamul Haque (Secretary General of BSRI) in 2011, several posts under the various sub-specialities of Radiology were created in the government sector.

The BSRI currently has 187 life members and more then 200 general members.
