Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Gastrointestinal Diseases



  • Aiming at tackling the common problems and technical bottleneck inhibiting tumor diagnosis and treatment equipment, Guangdong Radiation Diagnosis and Therapy Equipment Engineering Research Center is relying on Southern Medical University and concentrates on researches in key components in radiological imaging equipment, core technology in radiation therapy equipment and biomedical imaging processing. The center also carries out developments on common engineering and applied techniques with independent copyrights. Bas Based on these engineering-oriented, system-oriented and complementing-oriented researches, the research center is able to provide incentives in improving medical apparatus and instruments industry in Guangdong province and China. To cooperate with the Innovative Medical Equipment Application Project launched by Ministry of Science and Technology and Guangdong Provincial Department of Science and Technology, the research center helps to establish radiation imaging evaluation system, which benefits the application promotion of the home-made Digital Radiography (DR).
