In 1984 Computed Tomography and Ultrasonography machines has been bought and utilized in health service. In 1992 Faculty of Medicine Hospital has moved to Görükle Campus.
In 1991 Digital Subtraction Angiography, a new computed tomography and Color Doppler Ultrasound devices has been set in new hospital and after that all angiography procedures has been made by Radiology staff.
In following years, our department has organized academic staff under organ systems, improved his understanding of service and become the first radiology department that puts in practice this method in our country.
In 1992 year 1.0 T Magnetic Resonance device, in 1997 helical CT, in 2000 1.5 T MR device and DEXA device, in 2004 new DSA device, in 2009 multidetector CT device and in 2011 3.0 T MR device has been added to our equipment and modern technological development has been utilized in many ways.
Uludag University Faculty of Medicine Radiology Department is one of the leader departments in radiology education. In 2013 our department has been the first radiology department evaluated and accredited by Turkey Radiology Association in radiology education. As an indicator of our success, our department has been chosen by many students who have highest ranks in National Medical Expertise Exam.
