We strive to become and remain a leading pediatric oncology diagnostic medical imaging department and recognized as such by our patients and other diagnostic centers both in the Middle East and internationally.
The mission of the medical imaging department is to provide the best quality imaging information that clinicians require to diagnose and treat the patient. We will achieve this by:
Ensuring the smooth running of the imaging services through appropriate communication with the hospital staff aiming at accurate diagnosis in timely fashion and transfer of information.
Using all facilities to their capacity to minimize patient waiting time, ensure quality diagnostic results and avoid patient, public and staff exposure to unnecessary ionizing radiation and other possible hazards.
Pursuing a policy of continuous improvement in our methods in line with the fast developing field of diagnosis through sustained modernization of the equipments, quality assurance and continuing education programs for all categories of staff.
Standardization of investigations and examination done in our department consistent with the international standards (examination techniques and protocols) and spread this knowledge in our country to other diagnostic centers.
