Department of Radiology
Since the academician Wang Zhongcheng set up the neuroimaging center of Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University in 1980, With the unremitting endeavor of all the staff in the department, it becomes a modern department with advanced equipments, characteristic medical service and successful scholarship with the solid foundation made by radiologists of old generation like Song Zunwu and Lu Rongqing, especially by the guidance of the hospital director Dai Jianping. In 1998, it was approved as disciplines for doctorate degree granting and center for post-doctoral studies, now it’s the most famous centre of neuroimaging research and medical care.
Advanced Medical equipments: The neuroimaging center has 5 platforms of MRI system, 3 platforms of CT machine, 3 platform of DSA facility, a platform of ECD machine and a platform of color Doppler ultrasonograph machine at present. Besides, the image facilities and associates assorted reprocessing softwares always set the pace in China and keep international level basically. Moreover, neuroimaging centre is in possession of the most advanced pure digital PACS system in China, which can elevate the preservation quality of images obviously and assist the clinic better.
Tremendous technical forces: Our center is staffed by 5 professors and chief physicians, 3 associate chief physicians, 2 doctorial supervisors and 3 master supervisors in the neuroimaging centre. Furthermore, 4 people have doctor’s degree and 5 people have master’s degree in ourcentre. Most of them have specialized knowledge of a subject. The discipline leaders hospital director Dai Jianping and professor Gao Peiyi have highly attainment in the research of neuroimaging, they are well-known as “eyes of god” and their diagnosis are deemed to “preoperative pathological diagnosis”.
Significant Medical Characteristics: Neuroimaging center introduced the advanced crisscross management system firstly, in which technicians and nurses are grouped according to the equipment, managed vertically, while the doctors are grouped horizontally and rotated termly. This management system drives discipline construction vastly and established our medical charactristics gradually. The leading position of Beijin Tiantan Hospital neurosurgery department laied a solid foundation for the development of neuroimaging science, vice versa, the rapid growth of neuroimaging science provided a strong support for the development of neurology and neurosurgery, including the clinical, teaching and research work.
Numerous Achievements of Science and Education: We have undertaken and finished many scientific research projects as the first person in charge, including scientific and technological issues of National 8th,9th,10th and 11th Five-Year Plan and won a large number of awards, including two National Major Scientific and Technological Achievement Prize, one National Registration Results Award, one 3th Chinese Medical Science and Technology Prize, one 3th Ministry of Health Science and Technology Progress Prize, three 2th Beijing Science and Technology Progress Prize, eleven 3th Beijing Science and Technology Progress Prize At the same time, the department held a number of national classes and trained more than 500 refresher doctors throughout the country.
Twenty-first Century Outlook: Under the leadership of professor Gao Peiyi, all the medical staff of Capital Medical University affiliated Beijing Tiantan Hospital neuroimaging center would unite and strive to pioneer and keep forging ahead, constantly innovate, to make the discipline construction reach a new level and pull off the following three transform and construction objects, ascend to be a international well-known excellent subject.
Key of the development: Three conversions, firstly, changed the simple morphological study based on the anatomy into functional studies combined the anatomy and pathophysiology, secondly, knowledge structure mainly contain clinical medicine, physics and electronics transform into mainly pathological physiology, biochemistry and computer application on the base above, thirdly, physician, technician as the main staff change into physicians, biomedical engineers.
Goal of the disciplines: Future development of the neuroimaging center will be as the functional / molecular imaging, medical image processing / CAD, neurological interventional radiology and imaging evidence-based medicine for the direction, as study on the brain disease, tumors, and interventional Radiology of the central nervous system for the focus and characteristics; we will stabilize it into scientific research and senior practical talent training base of the related fields above.
The motto of the neuroimaging center: Advance with the times.
