The Department of Radiology of the Lung Center of the Philippines offers wide variety of Diagnostic Examinations, Therapeutic and Interventional procedures. The Department composed of four (4) sections namely Diagnostic X-ray, Ultrasound, Computed Tomography (CT-SCAN) and the Radiation Oncology Section. It delves primarily on radiographic/digital imaging of body parts, both contrast and non-contrast studies providing sufficient patho-anatomical correlation leading to adequate diagnosis and cancer patient treatment.
A Radiologic Technology students from different schools conducting 5 1/2 months Academic Internship and 3 months on the job training course program for those licensed Radiologic Technologist.
Ultrasound, CT and Interventional Radiology are at the high – end spectrum of diagnostic modalities reserved to augment the diagnostic capacity of basic radiography. They may be used singly or in combination hence provides complimentary assessment of pathologies. The Ultrasound basically makes use of sound whereas CT and interventional Radiology uses x-ray radiation to produce images.
Radiation Treatment or Radiotherapy is one of the modest services being offered by the Lung Center of the Philippines. Aware of its social responsibility of providing the best and maximum care to cancer-ill patients in need of such service, the hospital desires to have them avail of the service with proper and adequate guidance.
In 2013, the LCP had acquired new modalities of x-ray machine in the Diagnostic X-ray Section, upgraded from film to filmless with a Computed Radiography (CR) and Digital Radiography (DR) x-ray machine where x-ray images taken from the examination can be stored and easily transferred to CD and paper print for much efficient handling and storing both to the Department as well as to our customers. Acquisition of the said unit will help the Radiologic Technologist speed up of their works. The computerization of patient data and radiological interpretations facilitate also the speedy and efficient release of results in the Radiology Department. In additional, Philips CT Scan Machine with a 16 slices donated by the Department of Health (DOH) and can accommodate of increasing number of patient a day.
The Department continues to grow in terms of the acquisition of new generation machines, the continuous rise in the number of patients it serves, and an increase in the number of higly-qualified Medical Staff and personnel.
All this is in keeping with the Center's Mission and Vison.
