The Radiology Department aims to provide high-quality diagnostic imaging and interventional service to patients. The department conducts various research programs and also provides training in diagnostic and interventional imaging to radiology, medical, paramedical, nursing, and medical students. Its services include conventional radiology, CT and MRI scans, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, bone mineral density test, mammography, and interventional and neurointerventional procedures. It is the pioneer in using the first silent MRI machine. Besides, it uses the microwave ablation system and transarterialradio-embolization, among other technologies.

 

Scope of Services:

  • Conventional radiology (X-ray)
  • CT
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • BMD
  • Mammography (CAD, Stereotactic & VABBP procedures and MRI Cad – new)
  • Interventional procedures (e.g. TIPS, TACE, RF Ablation, Venous, Renal dialysis, Oncology, OB and body interventions).
  • Neurointerventional (intracranial Tpa, carotid and intracranial stenting, aneurysm coiling, AVM treatment, tumor embolization, and WADA Test Service).

 Achievements:

  1. Microwave ablation system for liver and lung tumors
  2. Transarterial radio embolization for HCC
  3. Started Multidisciplinary meeting about liver cancer
  4. Significant collaboration with vascular surgeon (e.g. endovascular aortic aneurysm repair within the department)
  5. PACS - Creating radiology critical alert system to notify physicians electronically C/O SMS or email.
