The department ensures treatment and teaching activity for the field of radiology, intervention radiology, neuroradiology and pediatric radiology. We closely cooperate with other departments of University Hospital Hradec Králové and use the latest diagnostic devices as for example a magnetic resonance imaging device where the magnetic field force is 3T and two other similar devices with 1.5 T magnetic field force. The department is also equipped with three 128 row computer tomographs, and two 3D angiographic sets, ultrasound devices, skiagraphs and modern mammographic sets.
Annually, the department carries out 100,000 examinations on skiagraphs, 51,000 US examinations, 20,000 CTs, 8,500 MRIs and 5,000 vasographic diagnostic examinations or interventions. The workplace for breast care, with a total of 13,000 examinations, is one of the leading and most prestigious such workplaces in the Czech Republic.
We participate in teaching students from the Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové and also radiological assistants from the University of Pardubice. Our department is an instruction and training center for radiology, intervention radiology, pediatric radiology, and neuroradiology.
The department uses a whole range of treatments and diagnostics covering both vascular and non-vascular areas. Of vascular interventions, the angio-intervention center carries out clearing arterial bed, closure of vessel malformations and strengthening of vertebrae bodies with the bone cementum. Non-vascular interventions represent treatment of back pain with the help of oxygen-ozone therapy or pulse radio frequency treatment. The department also specializes in the treatment of tumors of the kidneys with the help of the so-called radio frequency ablation.
A specialized pediatric X-ray section dealing with complex examinations of child patients is located at the Department of Radiology.
Scientific and research priorities of the department are the treatment (using interventional radiologic procedures) of patients suffering from overpressure of the portal vein bed, treatment of aneurysms of the thoracic aorta with the help of coated reinforcement, treatment of hemorrhagic intracranial aneurisms, imaging of impaired lungs, neck, heart and organs in the abdominal cavity, fetal examinations with the help of magnetic resonance, and problems related to decreasing radiation dosage during CT and angio-interventions.
