    Departments

        The Radiology Department is the first-level medical unit of our hospital, and it is located at the end of the left-hand side upon entering the entrance of the Medical Building.

        Our team consists of 2 specialist physicians, 12 radiographers, and 1 secretary. We offer a variety of diagnostic instruments to diagnose accurately,  including diagnostic X-ray machines, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner, mobile X-ray machines, computed tomography (CT) scanner, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scanner for bone density, ultrasound bone densitometer, mammography unit, ultrasound machines, and mobile fluoroscopy X-ray machines, among others.

        The services we provide for X-ray imaging include head, neck, limbs, chest, abdomen, pelvis, digestive tract, urinary tract, spinal cord, joint cavities, and more. We offer full-body MRI scans, full-body CT scans, bone density tests, mammography, and specialized imaging. Through professionally trained radiographers and specialized knowledge, we provide high-quality imaging to assist radiologists in diagnosing. We collaborate with clinical physicians to discuss and diagnose imaging data, fostering a spirit of teamwork to provide patients with better medical quality. We actively introduce interventional radiological procedures such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCN), percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTCD), abscess drainage, and tumor biopsy to provide more comprehensive services to clinical physicians and patients. We utilize Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) to achieve digitalization of medical image, accelerating service processes and report turnaround time. Furthermore, we have implemented state-of-the-art CT and MRI technology to offer patients higher quality and more precise medical imaging examinations.
