Departmental Achievements

 

1.         Separation of the Nuclear Medicine as a small part of radiology to become an independent department in the hospital and a division in the Department of Medicine, King Saud University.  This step facilitated the work significantly and promoted the speciality as a well recognized independent field.

 

2.         The number of studies increased by 600% over the last 5 years inspite of the  increase in the quality and standard of different procedures to match the international standard.

 

3.         Not only the number of different new procedures increased to reach more than 70 different studies, but also the quality improved gradually and steadily to reach the optimal level with little or unnoticeable burden on the technologist.

 

4.         Most of the working personnel were trained in the department and reached a good technical level.

 

5.         Inspite of the lack of a physicist, a radiopharmacist and loss of the trained ECG        technician and well trained technologist, the work proceded with the available staff to keep performing all the sophisticated procedures, most of them only performed in this centre, under the supervision of the only consultant available (Dr. M. El-Desouki) and a trained registrar holding a master degree in Nuclear Medicine.


 

6.         Obtaining a SPA Bone Densitometry through research.

 

7.         Obtaining a DPX Densitometry through research grants.

 

8.         Obtaining a PC computer through research grants.

 

9.         Setting a data base including patient informations, codes for studies and results, statistics, etc.

 

10.      Changing the requisition to fit this computerized system to include patients information and a brief report.  Full report will be typed and stored once we could obtain a high capacity computer.

 

11.              Obtaining a new gamma camera. GE XC/T to replace the old technicare.

 

12.      Giving lectures, tutorials, seminars, club meeting and contributing in many local symposia in different cities and in many clinical fields to promote the speciality in order to become well known in the country.

 

13.       Educating interns, residents, registrars, specialists and consultants through   discussion of the cases and personal communication.

 

14.         Giving advises, consultations and planning for many new departments in the  Kingdom.

 

15.      Accepting referral from cities all over the kingdom, as a well recognized  centre.

 

16.      We have introduced a new modality in bone density evaluation using Ultrasonic Bone Analyzer from Walker Sonix, Inc.

 

17.      A new modality in evaluating cardiac function (left ventricle ejection fraction)  using             probe technique with the Cardioscint of Oakfield Instruments Ltd.

 

18.       Nuclear Medicine Newsletter Monthly publication of Nuclear Medicine         Division, King Saud University, ISSN No.
