The main task of the department’s medical team, consisting of 6 professors, 10 doctors and 60 employees, is to diagnose and treat various diseases with the help of radioactive isotopes. In addition, the department provides an accurate early diagnosis of many cancers, neurological, endocrine diseases, heart and kidney pathologies.

In 1994, the first PET Diagnostic Center in Korea was opened at the department, which has played a major role in the field of nuclear imaging at the national level since that time.

Also, the acknowledgment of the outstanding quality of medical services is the quality certificate ISO 15189, which was assigned to the department in 2014 by the Korean Accreditation Commission (KOLAS) for the first time in the country.
