Fully digital imagery seven days a week
The Hospital da Luz Imaging Center offers ultrasound, CT scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), conventional radiology (X-rays), mammography, bone densitometry and other examinations.
This center has some of the most technologically advance equipment available, all fully digital, which allows all types of imaging examinations to be performed.
The Imaging Center's experienced and dedicated team has 27 imaging technicians who capture images (except in the case of ultrasound where radiologists perform the examination) and 34 radiology and neurorradiology physicians, who are responsible for interpreting the images and drawing up reports. The center also has other staff providing assistance and administrative support.
Our aim to meet clients' expectations has meant that the Hospital da Luz Imaging Center is now the first in Portugal to have three high magnetic field MRI machines (1.5 Tesla and 3 Tesla). This provides significant differentiation in pioneering areas and clinical research. The Hospital da Luz also has four CT machines available in the Imaging Center, the Radiotherapy Department and the Operating Theater.
Recently, the Hospital da Luz Imaging Center hit the very impressive 1 million examination mark, all carried out since it was opened in 2006.
The opening times were also recently extended:
- Seven days a week
- Monday to Friday, from 08.00 to 22.00
- Saturdays and Sundays, from 08.00 to 18.00
