History of the department. The department of Radiology and Radiotherapy was established in 1930. In the early years, the department was functioning on the base of the department of Therapeutic Propaedeutics as a course. The head of the course of “Roentgenology and Radiology” was Associate Professor M.T.Kasimly. He led this course for 12 years. In 1942, the course of “Roentgenology and Radiology” was seperated from that department and started to function independently. V.N.Abgarov was appointed as the head of the course. He has been honored by the title of “Head of the Department” since 1950. Since 1969, B.A.Bakhshiyev, who successfully defended his doctoral thesis at the Institute of Roentgenology and Radiology in Moscow, returned to his home country and started to work as the Head of the department of Radiology and Radiotherapy ever since.
