The Imaging Center of the VUmc offers all activities related to medical imaging under one roof. On the first three floors, patients can visit the Radiology and Nuclear Medicine departments which use the latest imaging equipment (including MRI, CT, PET-CT, SPECT-CT, PET-MRI, bucky, ultrasound, transillumination and mammography). Isotopes are created in the basement, whilst the upper floors are used for research and building technology.
The design of the building naturally takes into account the large weight of the equipment and the strict safety requirements related to radiation, vibrations and magnetic fields. Lead2Fix has contributed to this by supplying VarioShieldPlus panels that have been fitted by Muller Afbouw.
