Are radiology services well designed and applied in a hospital's? It was  one of the issues  discussed at the First Day of the Radiology Conference held  at  the Catholic University of Murcia under the motto "Architecture applied to the construction of hospital". In the event, leading specialists related to the field of architecture, management, engineering or radiology participated such as Antonio Burgess, former General Director of the Community Hospital of Madrid; Antonio Ocana, studies Architecture Aidhos , and  José Ángel García Ruiz, Spanish engineer,  who designed radiology services with his partner ALRAD Consulting.

Vicente Garcia, director of the Siemens Chair of Radiology, WC Roentgen UCAM, and event organizer argued that ”radiology  services need to be designed correctly" because some malfunctions often occur when the hospital takes this service into operation. "

The situation in Spain and Murcia

José Ángel García Ruiz, who has taught on the 'Dimensioning of Radiology', said that "at this time, most of hospitals in Spain have deficiencies in design". In the region of Murcia, it is indicated that there are good Radiology services, but  would still require changes. "Some are already updating," he clarified, "the region has  good equipment, with good quality services and excellent staff. "

"Right now, most of hospitals in Spain have deficiencies in design"

Solution

García Ruiz has indicated that radiology needs to be  placed near the area of the patients who need it. "Radiology has to be near an emergency area. It helps the reduce patient  movement and increase accessibility. New hospitals are already doing this”, he said.
