Diagnostic Radiology

About Us
 
Mission
Our mission is to provide the highest standard of imaging services and consultation in order to meet the needs of patients as determined by the medical staff. We assist colleagues in making diagnosis and management by utilizing radiological techniques, and we provide a state-of-the-art interventional radiology service. In addition to ensuring minimizing radiation exposure to patients and workers, we participate in the educational program for interns, medical students, residents, radiographers, and trainees.
 
Vision
Our vision is to maintain a leadership position in imaging and intervention and to update and expand the imaging facilities to keep up with the technical advances and medical requirements. On the academic level, the department will continue to strengthen the residency program and engage in active research in collaboration with colleagues at AUBMC, as well as regional and international institutions.
