NU-MED Center for Diagnostics and Oncology Therapy in Katowice has a specialization in diagnostic imaging by means of computer tomography, magnetic resonance and X-ray. A broader assortment of diagnostic examination stems from the collaboration of the center for radiation therapy with the Central Clinical Hospital.

Diagnostic examinations serve as the basis for the diagnostics of an oncology disease. Imaging examinations point to where the neoplasm is located and, in some cases, the source of neoplastic disease. Once subjected to histopathological examination, the specimens indicate the type of neoplasm and facilitate the selection of the treatment method or the adoption of the decision to undertake a combined treatment (conjunction of surgery with radiation therapy and chemotherapy).
