4Dedicated to
My dear father Harnam Singh on his 102nd birthday
Bang on radiology
With CT, PET-CT, MRI, Doppler, SPECT, sonology
Baffling, mystifying, bewildering, perplexing
Comprehend amalgamate understand
Get unbamboozle
Corroborate it with patients’ state
The diagnosis is made
The treatment is concocted
Vigor and strength rejuvenated
All is fine and invigorated
The value of radiology cannot be measured
It can only be treasured.
