The Department is equipped with state-of-art imaging facility which cover most imaging requirements,providing high quality medical imaging and interpretation of the images,and has rich experiences in diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapies in the fields of pediatrics (especially on pediatric skeletal development and congenital malformation),and obstetrics and gynecology(especially on infertility, female cancer and breast disease).And PACS(Picture Archiving and Communications System) is now used in the department,enabling clinical images to be stored electronically and viewed on screen,and leading to a faster availability of results.And the images can also be shared with other hospital departments.And in the long term,this technology will help to provide swifter and more accurate diagnoses and treatment for patients across national health system.
