The Radiodiagnostic Clinic of the First Faculty of Medicine and General Teaching Hospital is currently one of the largest clinics of its kind in the country. We provide a complete spectrum of radiological imaging methods. The clinic's activities include, in addition to diagnostic imaging, vascular and non-vascular interventional radiology. In addition to X-ray machines, we have 3 computed tomographs (CT), 2 magnetic resonance imaging (MR 1,5T and MR 3T), 5 ultrasound devices, 1 angiographic set and 2 mammographs. In collaboration with our clinicians, patients are examined on a PET / CT instrument, a hybrid device consisting of PET (positron emission tomography) and CT, linking nuclear medicine and radiology. The Radiodiagnostic Clinic is fully digitized and operates in a non-film-based operation. With the ePACS system, it is possible to send images of examinations to a number of other hospitals in the Czech Republic and vice versa to receive image documentation from these facilities.
The clinic consists of 17 workplaces and departments, which annually examine approximately 100,000 patients and perform approximately 125,000 examinations. Due to the layout of the hospital, the detached X-ray facilities provide services primarily to the patients of the individual clinics and departments in which they are located, but most workplaces carry out examinations also for outpatients outside the hospital. Some specialized centers provide examinations for patients from all over the Czech Republic (Neuroradiology Department, CT Workplace, Angiographic Workplace, Breast Disease Diagnostic Center). The Radiology Clinic also includes radiological workplaces of the Faculty Hospital Polyclinic. One of the clinic's top priorities is to provide patients with high-level care, which is associated, among other things, with the gradual modernization of instrumentation.
The clinic's activities are characterized by close cooperation with other institutes, clinics and departments of the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University and the General Teaching Hospital not only in clinical but also in the theoretical fields, especially in medical preventive care, but also in the field of science, research and pedagogical work.
