The Department of Radiology, the Department of Nuclear Medicine and the Department of Radiation Oncology at this China Medical University Hospital are equipped with a great number of advanced imaging and treatment instruments to provide the latest medical examination technology and diagnostic support. Moreover, professional radiologists and medical technologists play an equally important role in the teaching of CMU Department of Radiological Technology. Students in the Department of Radiological Technology not only benefit from the availability of modern equipment, but also from the enthusiasm of the faculty.

Teaching Objectives

We aim to train students to be professional radiological technologists that are hardworking and devoted to research, with professional skills and general medical knowledge.

Areas of Study

  1. Diagnosis Introduction to Radiology, including X-rays, CT (Computerized Tomography), Fluoroscopic X-ray exams, Angiography, Ultrasound, and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) 
  2. Nuclear Medicine, including Gamma Imaging, SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computerized Tomography), PET (Positron Emission Tomography), RIA (Radioimmunoassay), Radiopharmaceutical, and Nuclear Medicine Computer Image Analysis 
  3. Therapeutic Radiology, including Linear Accelerator, Simulation Photography, External Teletherapy, Afterloading Brachytherapy, Conformal Radiotherapy, and IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy) 


Our distinguished faculty consists of 2 professors, 2 associate professors, 5 assistant professors and 7 lecturers along with 4 senior attending doctors. In addition, there is also a team of 40 senior technologists who serve as mentors and coaches for the students. 

Teaching & Practices Facilities

China Medical University Hospital, as a large-scale medical center, is well equipped with a variety of advanced diagnostic facilities, accessible to students for hands-on learning and practicums.

Characteristics of Curriculum
