The mission of the Diagnostic Clinic is providing top-quality and timely diagnostic information to help make clinical decisions.
We use contemporary instruments and are constantly improving our knowledge. Our laboratory operates largely according to the ISO 15189 standard and our Pathology and Radiology Centres operate according to the Quality Manual. Accreditation is pending.
The offices and workspaces of the Diagnostic Clinic are located in different units of the hospital. In total, we perform over two million different studies every year. The clinic employs 235 people. We consider the competence of our employees to be of the utmost importance – this is maintained by yearly follow-up courses. We also train doctors, nurses and residents. Our employees are taking part in scientific and clinical trials. They participate actively in the work of professional societies and thereby in shaping the national organisation of labour in specialised medicine.
We cooperate with the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn and Tartu Health Colleges and Tallinn high-schools regarding training courses and research work.
