Department introduction

Department introduction
Educating highly qualified professionals in radiology through specializing education system
Department of Radiological Science
The Department of Radiological Science is broken down to diagnosis medicine that performs radiological tests, such as X-ray test, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, bone density, CT, MRI, SPECT, and PETCT, and radiological medicine that treats cancer through isotope therapy or high-energy radiation. To apply these latest instrument and imaging technology, the Department of Radiological Science in Far East University offers a systematic theoretical education and field practice. Also, the Department has opened the related programs for students who wish to advance to the industrial and applied technological fields of radiology to offer the right education for their aptitudes.


  • The Department of Radiological Science in Far East University focuses on educating field professionals through clinical practices in various institutions and excellent academic-industrial cooperation system (Seoul University Hospital, Sinchon Severance Hospital, Asan Hospital, Samsung Medical Center, Korea University Anam Hospital). Also, it is equipped with the full DR (digital Radiography) imaging devices and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) to facilitate digitalized image in the lecture and practice sessions. 10 units of the latest ultrasound devices have been installed to enhance the clinical field education for the students. The Department of Radiological Science runs the language, academic and presentation clubs to actively participate in Korea and international academic conferences and earn good results. The Department has also opened the certification classes for each year in computer processing, general radioactive isotope, and radiology
