Rad-Department-2020

Welcome note for radiology department

Over more than 100 years, diagnostic radiology has evolved from the subtle art of interpreting shadows on a blurred film to a complex and highly technologically evolved discipline, requiring a large array of skills and knowledge. The specialist is a respected expert and radiology has become an indispensable service. Medical Imaging has been proclaimed as one of the “eleven developments that has changed the face of clinical medicine” during the last millennium, according to the editors of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Our goal at National University-Sudan is to provide the highest level of care at the level of expectations as one of the top universities in the world.
