The Department of Radiology and Physiotherapy at Medical University - Pleven was created in 1976. For its material base, the X-ray department of the former Primary District Hospital  "Dr. P.Beshev" (currently University Hospital for Active Treatment "Dr. G. Stransky.") is employed.

Sector "Radiology" is a divisional of the department educational-methodical structure. Its main functions are realized based on Department of Imaging Diagnostic, which in turn is an administrative and territorial structure of the University Hospital "Dr. George Stransky".

The academic staff of the department is actively involved in teaching imaging techniques to Bulgarian-language and English-language training courses.

Collaborators of the department teach and lecture on the following subjects:

  • Course " Imaging Diagnostic " in Faculty "Public Health" - Medical Rehabilitation and Occupational Therapy
  • Faculty "Health Care" - midwives, nurses
  • Medical College Pleven - X-ray technicians.

 Despite the huge workload and staffing issues, the academic staff of the department works independently and in collaboration with several other departments in both medical diagnostics and research activities.
