At Yeditepe University Hospital Imaging Unit, we are happy to serve our patients with our expert personnel in the field of up-to-date device equipment and modern medical technology.
Our unit has technologically equipped devices such as 3 Tesla Magnetic Resonance (MRI), Multi-Slice Computed Tomography (MD-CT), PET/CT, Gamma Camera-SPECT, Flat Panel Digital Angiography (DSA), Digital Fluoroscopy, Digital Direct X-rays, Digital Mammography device, Bone Densitometry device, 4-D Ultrasounds, Doppler Ultrasonography, Portable X-rays, C-Arms. All images are obtained in a digital environment, collected, stored in a center, evaluated, and archived in a digital environment together with their reports and sent to all units of our hospital via the intranet network. Our Imaging Unit is also connected to other imaging centers of the world with this computer and internet network and can exchange information. PACS (Picture Archiving & Communication System) and Image Information System (RIS) required for this function are available in our hospital with wide options. Our goal is to provide the correct diagnosis to the patients in a short time in light of the current information with our experienced radiology and nuclear medicine experts in their fields, to convey this to our physicians in a short time, and to ensure the rapid treatment of our patients. In addition to the diagnosis, minimally invasive treatment methods are performed in our Interventional Radiology unit using current technologies. There are revolutionary changes in the field of imaging. It is now insufficient to evaluate the films alone and to try to diagnose them by looking at the morphological appearances of the organs or tissues. Our clinicians expect definitive diagnoses from imaging units based on quantitative data. Today, in addition to the morphological images of the organs, quantitative information about the metabolic and functional properties of pathological tissue and tumors is obtained at the cellular and even molecular level with Molecular Imaging techniques. With PET/CT in our unit, increased metabolic activations of the tumors are evaluated and their localization is determined. During imaging with functional MRI and MR Proton and Phosphorus Spectroscopy, the most malignant part of the tumors is determined by another definition, and the tumors can be divided into subgroups and classified by looking at the type and number of molecules in the tumor. In light of this information, the diagnosis of diseases will be made more reliable. In addition, how effective the treatment is, the metabolic activation of the tumor, and chemical and physical changes are evaluated at the molecular level. The need for biopsy for diagnosis is gradually decreasing today. This method, which is invasive and sometimes takes a long time, will probably disappear in the future with advances in genetics and molecular biology, and in the field of imaging in parallel. With functional MRI, areas with vital functions in the brain will be visualized and brain tumors will be surgically removed at the maximum rate without damaging these areas.
As a requirement of being a university hospital, a research environment will be created in real terms, and the "Molecular Imaging Research Unit", which was established for the first time in Yeditepe University Hospital in our country, whose project has reached the final stage, will also contribute to its formation.
As Yeditepe University Hospital Imaging Unit, our goal is to compete with the world's leading universities, apply current imaging techniques, develop new ones, and present them for the benefit of our country and all humanity.
