Iii. Equipment configuration

Radiology department is divided into radiology department and CT room. Radiology department owns digital radiography (DR) produced by GE company, digital gastroenterology machine produced by Hitachi Company in Japan, dual-energy X-ray bone density measurement instrument from France and high-energy mammography machine from Italy. The CT room owns the SOMATOM Emotion6 multi-layer spiral CT machine produced by Siemens in Germany, which is equipped with independent laser camera respectively. The models are FUJIFILM Dry PIX4000, AGFA5503 and KODAK8150. PACS system was installed in the department to realize digital processing of imaging department examination and diagnosis and sharing of image data throughout the hospital.

Iv. Project development

The radiology Department now carries out the following items: 1. Routine X-ray photography of the whole body; 2. 2. Ordinary chest and abdomen fluoroscopy; 3. Gastrointestinal radiography, including esophagoesophageal barium meal radiography, upper gastrointestinal barium meal radiography, small intestine barium meal radiography, colon gas-barium double radiography, etc.; 4. Hysterosalpingography, intravenous urography, T-tube angiography, sinus tract and fistula angiography; 5. Defecography, colon slow transport test, gastric emptying test and other special examinations; Bone mineral density measurement; 6. 7. Mammography. DR machine is an advanced digital photographic equipment, which can reduce the dose of irradiation on the patient, make the film quickly, make the image clear, and adjust the brightness and contrast of the image and magnify the small lesions according to the needs of the disease.

The CT room now carries out the following items: 1. 2.CT enhanced scan can accurately display the blood supply of the inspected organs at different periods, find small lesions, and accurately identify various parenchymal visceral lesions; 3. Special CT examinations: such as CT arterial imaging (CTA), CT urinary imaging (CTU), etc. 4, is a powerful post-processing function, multiplanar reconstruction (MPR), curved surface reconstruction (CPR), surface cover display (SSD) and maximum density projection (MIP) and volume representation technology (VRT), etc., and for each direction to rotate 360 degrees, so as to achieve all-round observation, greatly improve the CT diagnosis and the accuracy of qualitative diagnosis. Also has the simulation endoscope, CT fluoroscopy and CT film and other special functions. 5. Clinical operations guided by CT: such as cerebral hemorrhage cone cranial drainage, chest and abdomen puncture biopsy, etc.

The above examination images and diagnostic reports are Shared by the whole hospital and the image data is stored permanently through PACS system.

5. Monthly workload

About 3000 X-ray examinations, 30 angiograms, 90 bone mineral density measurements and 10 molybdenum target examinations were performed in the radiology department every month. CT room was scanned about 900 times per month, which was increased by 10 times.

Vi. Teaching tasks

Every year, the Imaging department completes the internship tasks of postgraduate and undergraduate students in Shaanxi Province College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Jiangxi College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Guangxi College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and receives the imaging department staff from Hua County Hospital, Lantian Hospital, Hua Shan Hospital and other surrounding county hospitals for further study. To undertake the training of clinicians in county-level hospitals and below.

Vii. Scientific research
