According to an official statement issued by AIIMS, under the service, films and reports of OPD patients will be issued on the same day.

As per a letter issued by Dr Deep Nayaran Srivastava, head, Department of Radio-diagnosis and Interventional Radiology, 35 slots have been designated for same-day Ultrasound in the new “RAK OPD basement” to cater to patients with appropriate clinical conditions.
