The Diagnostic Imaging Department at Laniado performs testing and treatment procedures, including: fluoroscopy, X-ray, angiography, ultrasound, uterine imaging, mammography, and CT scans. Treatments are carried out in the invasive radiology unit, which is the only unit in Israel that performs gastrostomy. The department serves the hospital departments, the health funds, the Ministry of Defense, and private patients.

The Imaging Department staff aspires to perform tests at the highest professional level, using advanced methods and modern equipment. The department works to provide courteous service at maximum speed and availability, to the patient, referring physicians, and hospital departments, in accordance with Jewish law and in the spirit of the hospital’s founder, the late Admor of Sanz.
