He has the unique distinction of establishing the first PET CT in Sri Lanka. He did his MBBS from UCMS, Delhi (2000 batch) and Post-Graduation in Nuclear Medicine from renowned Institute in Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS) Delhi. He also did his Ph.D. in Radiation Biology on ‘Role of Radio-Ligand in Theragnostics of Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate cancer’. He had advanced training in clinical Nuclear Medicine and radionuclide therapy during his fellowship in RWTH, Aachen, Germany. He has presented his research work on PET-CT in oncology and radionuclides therapies in various national and international forums. He is a recipient of Asian Regional Cooperative Council of Nuclear Medicine (ARCCNM) young scientist grant awards continuously in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2016.
