Medical imaging

The Medical imaging department provides first-class diagnostics, including examinations and treatments in many different areas. High-quality and multi-faceted research and development are conducted here in partnership with various stakeholders.

We are a high-tech, future-oriented organisation with a high pace of development. Our advanced methods and the complex disease patterns which we encounter on a daily basis require a high level of basic expertise with many branches at specialist level because we take the whole person as our starting point. We have catchment areas for both national specialised medical care and regional mandates. We are part of Skåne University Hospital’s specialist care – cardiac, neurological, mandibular, vascular and paediatric services are just a few examples.

We are an accredited centre of expertise with most potential modalities represented such as CT, MRI, intervention, ultrasound, conventional equipment and isotope operations. Our activities consist of equal parts acute and planned examinations and include six organ-specific sections: emergency radiology, thoracic radiology, paediatric radiology, musculoskeletal radiology, gastrointestinal and urological radiology, neuroradiology including dental radiology, clinical physiology and nuclear medicine, and clinical neurophysiology.

We are a partner in several contexts and are constantly working on quality and accessibility. Some 450,000 examinations are carried out here every year, and we see about 1,700 patients every day.


Medical imaging research is significant and important to our work. It is fully integrated into our day-to-day work, is prioritised in all respects, represents a symbiotic perspective and engenders a sense of pride and enthusiasm. This research is used to develop the methods of tomorrow that will benefit many target groups.

We are developing the future in close cooperation with technicians, engineers, physicists, public authorities, trade and industry, research institutes, colleges and universities, foundations and clinics, and we participate in national and international projects and studies. This requires continuous competence and training and means we expect great things from our staff, who do actually deliver on those expectations.
