Regional Centre, Dibrugarh
Regional Centre, Dibrugarh was established in 1988 and is located in the premises of Assam Medical College and Hospital which is one of the premier and oldest medical institutes of North-eastern region of India.
This centre will serve as a major conduit for supply of radiopharmaceuticals proposed to be produced at MCF (Cyclone 30), Kolkata to patients in Assam and neighbouring states, who are otherwise compelled to travel to distant places for Nuclear Medicine services.
Recently Dr. Bhubaneswar Borooah Cancer Institute (BBCI) has become a grants-in-aid institute of DAE under Tata Memorial Centre for Cancer, Mumbai.
