Service and Features
The Division of Neuroradiology : We interpret and diagnose neurological diseases in the head, neck and spine, including tumor, infection, congenital disease, and trauma. Daily routine examinations include X-ray (routine skull and sinus evaluations), computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance image (MRI), special imaging (myelography, discogram), and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) for diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology. We also have a professional cross-discipline team for Dementia, Seizure and Brain tumor.
The Division of Interventional Radiology: We perform interventional procedures and diagnostic images for preoperation or bleeding detection. The procedures include CT guide biopsy, Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), Transarterial Chemoembolization (TACE) cryoablation, imaging-guided percutaneous catheter drainage, and Y-90 radioembolization (SIRT).
The Division of Cardiopulmonary Radiology: In this Division we perform imaging diagnostic examinations and procedures for chest, cardiovascular and breast radiology. In chest radiology, plain film, computed tomography (CT), low-dose computed tomography (LDCT), high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and magnetic resonance (MR) are used for diagnosis of diseases of the chest. CT-guided biopsy is performed to obtain proof of clinically indicated pulmonary tumor. For cardiovascular imaging, multi-detector CT (MDCT) and MR are utilized and the high-quality 256-slice MDCT is used in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease and congenital heart disease. Cardiovascular MR is used for diagnosis of cardiomyopathy, clinically undetermined heart failure and quantification of blood flow in a target vessel. In the field of breast radiology, mammography is used for screening, and mammography, sonography and MR are used for diagnosis or follow-up of various clinical condition. Sonography- and mammography-guided biopsies are used to obtain proof of malignancy-suspicious breast tumor.
The Division of Abdominal Radiology: We interpret and diagnose abdominal diseases which include disorders of the gastrointestinal(GI) tract, liver, gall bladder, pancreas and spleen. By using constrast media under fluoroscopic imaging, we can check the function and anatomic abnormality of the GI tract, biliary tree or urinary tract. To improve the images, it is sometimes necessary to perform sonography, CT scan or MRI.
The Division of Musculoskeletal Radiology: X-rays, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scanning and MRI are used to effectively diagnose musculoskeletal disorders and injuries affecting bones and muscles, such as, trauma, fractures, arthritis, sports injuries, and musculoskeletal tumors. The symptoms and actual test results of patients are used in conjunction to get the correct diagnosis as soon as possible, and to provide information which can allow the clinicians to provide effective treatment.
The Division of Pediatric and Emergency Radiology: Our services for children include conventional X-ray, upper gastrointestinal series, small intestine and colon studies, urinary tract radiography, angiography, bone age determination, congenital cardiovascular disease imaging, CT scan, as well as magnetic resonance imaging, which provide rapid and correct diagnosis for pediatric patients.
