For You formed my inward parts;
You knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are Your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in Your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
THE BIBLE: PSALM 139:13-16
Fearfully and wonderfully made, in the darkness of the womb! No other medical science is privy to witnessing God’s awesome creativity...the formation of the human body... its myriad appearances in health and sickness.
The Radiology department is one of the oldest departments in Padhar Hospital, started by Rev. Dr. C.F. Moss in the late 1950s. At its inception, it was armed with an Xray machine... unheard of in rural India... and the only imaging device in a more than 200km radius! Now, the department encompasses various imaging modalities, cognisant of the financial constraints of a mission hospital and its economically challenged clientele.
