Our Mission

Radboud Research at the Department of Radiology aims to connect research breakthroughs to therapeutic procedures and clinical practices making them usable and executable. Our department employs technology and science in creating new paradigms and approaches to disease prevention and overall improvement of healthcare practices.

 

Collaborative Nature of RUNMC

Collaboration speeds up the research process by sharing knowledge and resources with other research institutions. We work on a common goal of advancing the use of radiology and nuclear medicine in the medical and health industry. Through these collaborations, the researchers have high hopes that their discoveries and publications will help in the improvement of health care system making health care affordable and possible for everyone. Researchers know limitations of a patient when it comes to affording healthcare and disease prevention programs, though they can’t provide special discounts on these services, they believe that advance research will radically change the healthcare system for good.

Our Six Fundamental Focus

Radboud Research Department focuses on the six fundamental science group of radiology. The research covers nuclear medicine, advanced x-ray tomographic imaging, image-guided interventions, ultrasound, biomedical research, and diagnostic imaging. The images captured from these procedures provide directions to health practitioners make a better diagnosis. It all starts with a proper diagnosis of a disease; however, due to the complexity of the symptoms and medical conditions of a patient, incorrect conclusions can happen. Misdiagnosis is not only dangerous, but it will also affect the patient’s quality of life preventing them to enjoy Amsterdam holiday to the fullest. By focusing on these six fundamentals of radiology, misdiagnosis can be reduced and later on be eliminated.

 

Radiology research and studies are intensive efforts that require practice and numerous samples to verify their correctness. Our team takes our research to the next level as we take our research methods to the Amsterdam canal tour. We gather as many samples as we can, so we can test each of them to their molecular level. Our previous publications have greatly contributed to the prevention of prostate, breast, chest and vascular diseases.

Automation in Medical Imaging

Automation in medical imaging speeds up the process of analyzing images of radiology tests and procedures. Our department has contributed to providing modules for algorithms and quantitative evaluation. We continuously work with experts to improve automation making it more precise and accurate. Automation enables hospital staffs to focus on what’s needed enabling them to provide better services to patients. The idea of automation is not to get human out of the picture but help them perform their duties effectively
