Kocaeli University Medical School Radiology Department was founded by Prof Dr Ali Demirci in 1995. As of October 2, 2015, the position of Head of the Department has been carried out by Prof Dr Ercüment Çiftçi. Our academic staff consists of 4 professors, 3 associate professors and 4 assistant professors.

Our department, which has been serving in the new hospital building on the Umuttepe campus since 2005, is located on the ground and basement floors of our hospital.

With our device park that we have created by following the latest technological developments, we are trying to respond to the increasing demand for imaging without sacrificing diagnostic quality and to contribute to the radiology literature with the clinical researches we carry out.

We have 16, 64 and 640 slice MDCT scanners that we display large body areas with thin sections in a very short time and create 3-dimensional images, virtual CT colonoscopy/bronchoscopy, cardiac CT angiography and CT perfusion images.

Advanced MR techniques that are developed in neuroradiology, head-neck, musculoskeletal and abdominal radiology and cardiac imaging fields are applied in daily practice with our two 1.5 Tesla and one 3 Tesla magnetic field MR devices.

All vascular and nonvascular interventional radiological procedures are performed with two angiography devices, one monoplane and one biplane, and five Doppler ultrasonography devices in IR unit.

There are one digital mammography with tomosynthesis feature, one ultrasound device and stereotaxy unit in breast imaging unit. Mammograms, ultrasound and MR images are evaluated together. Biopsies, wire marking procedures and stereotactic interventions are performed under the guidance of mammography and ultrasound.

In our department, there is one fully digitalized double-detector x-ray device and four analog x-ray devices digitalized with detectors; in addition, we have five more detectors and digitalized analog portable x-ray devices for use in clinics and intensive care units.

We have two C-arm fluoroscopy devices in the operating rooms, two C-arm fluoroscopy devices in the gastroenterology department, one digital fluoroscopy X-ray device in our department, and one scoliosis device synchronized with a detector and we’re using four Doppler-enabled ultrasound devices in the ultrasonography department.

Images obtained in angiography, mammography, x-ray, CT and MR units archived in advanced PACS and reported by faculty members accompanied by residents via workstations. Images and reports can be viewed by our hospital doctors through this system and optionally given to our patients on CD.

There are 4 nurses, 42 radiology technicians, 15 secretaries and 7 assistant personnel working in our department.
