The Department of Biomedical Imaging (formerly Department of Radiology), is situated on the 2nd floor of the Main Tower Building of the University of Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC). It was formed in 1964. This Department currently has a total of 300 staff which includes academic and non-academic staff and is continuing to grow
This homepage provides information about educational programs offered, technology available and patient care activities that are part of a modern diagnostic radiology department facing challenges in the new millennium.
To become a multifaceted Department of excellence in all four elements: clinical care, research, teaching and service to the University of Malaya and the radiology profession.
Our mission is to train the practitioners and the leaders of tomorrow and to advance the manner in which imaging and imaging sciences improve the human condition and continually reassess and improve all aspects of our practice.
The Department of Biomedical Imaging, formerly known as Department of Radiology, was set up under the supervision of Dr. Douglas Alton, a radiologist from Canada and it began operation at University Hospital in 1967. The Department was set-up with finance being provided under the Technical Assistance Programme of the Colombo Plan. The following were important landmarks in the establishment

The Department of BIOMEDICAL IMAGING is equipped with state of the art equipment and utilizes a wide range of imaging modalities which include CR and DR for general radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound , intravenous urography (IVU), Mammography, MRI (0.3 Tesla, 1.5 Tesla and 3.0 Tesla), Computed tomography or CT ( 2 units of 16 slice CT, 1 unit 128 slice CT and I unit dual source CT) and 2 angiography suites ( 1 biplane angiograpy, 1 flat panel detector angiography ) system. In addition, the Nuclear Medicine Unit is equipped with SPECT-CT and Dual Energy Absorbsiometry Bone Mineral Densitometer (DXA).
With the support of the University of Malaya Medical Centre which provides the support staff consisting of radiographers, medical lab technologists, attendants and clerical staff, the Department of Biomedical Imaging provides a whole range of radiology services including diagnostic imaging, image guided interventional and therapeutic procedures and nuclear medicine imaging and non imaging examinations.
The Radiology Information System (RIS) went into full function in March 2007 followed by the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) in May 2007 and the Department is now a filmless department. For a Department that performs up to 180,000 imaging examinations a year, the RIS alongside the PACS is the solution for managing the expansion of radiological services and the increasing number of images. Registration of patients, booking of appointments, tracking of patients, delivery of clinical reports, interactive documents and billing are all efficiently managed by the RIS. PACS provides clinicians rapid access to stored images and reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week and doctors are able to view their patient’s images at the same time at different locations and discuss the best care for their patients, all for better patient management.
The University of Malaya Research Imaging Centre (UMRIC) of the Department of Biomedical Imaging initiates all aspects of research which involves imaging procedures and facilitates research for those who require imaging services of the department. UMRIC also conducts research activities and monitors research activities of the Department members.
