The Radiology and Nuclear Medicine department at Radboud university medical center in Nijmegen is engaged in medical imaging and treatment of different conditions. Within Radiology, different medical imaging techniques, such as X-ray (both conventional and using CT equipment), ultrasound, and nuclear magnetic resonance (MRI), are used to diagnose disease. Interventional radiological treatments are conducted as well. In the area of Nuclear Medicine, research is conducted with radioactive substances to create visual references of diverse biological processes and any deviations using molecular (bio)markers. This medical imaging provides a more functional insight into the condition's processes than conventional CT, ultrasound, and MR imaging. Nuclear Medicine at the Radboudumc focuses mainly on oncological diagnostics, but also on the diagnostics of inflammations, metabolic diseases, and brain-related disorders. In addition, and specifically in oncology, these diagnostics are combined with therapy ("theranostics") in which the radioactive tracer directly destroys the cancer cell. For example, this is implemented for prostate and thyroid cancer.

Radboudumc strives to be a leading developer of sustainable, innovative and affordable healthcare to improve the health and wellbeing of people and society in the Netherlands and beyond. This is the core of our mission: To have a significant impact on healthcare. To get a better picture of what this entails, check out our strategy.
