The Department of Ultrasound was founded in 1960. Through the efforts of several generations, it has developed into a base which integrates clinical, teaching, scientific research and integration Now, It is the national standardized training institution of ultrasound medicine for resident doctors, quality control center of Zhejiang Province, master and doctor's degree authorization institution and postdoctoral research center of Medical School of Zhejiang University. Ten specialties were set up in the Department to undertake the corresponding clinical and teaching work (① hepatobiliary and pancreatic ultrasound intervention ② abdominal ultrasound ③ urinary ultrasound ④ thyroid and breast ultrasound ⑤ obstetrics and Gynecology ultrasound ⑥ musculoskeletal ultrasound ⑦ pediatrics ultrasound ⑧ vascular ultrasound ⑨ intensive care ultrasound ⑩ gastrointestinal ultrasound). At present, we have 41 diagnostic ultrasound that include Philips, GE, Esaote, Toshiba etc. we also have advanced microwave radio frequency, laser radio frequency therapy and other interventional therapy equipment. The annual outpatient visits are more than 300000.
There are more than 70 medical staffs in the general practice, including one senior professor and five associate senior professors, one post doctorate, three MD&PhD, three MD & PhD candidates and 36 masters.

Every year, the department accepts nearly 100 advanced personnel of ultrasound and clinical specialties in hospitals inside and outside the province, carries out technical exchanges in the "Belt and Road" international training course, and holds many superficial organs and peripheral blood vessels meetings of the Chinese Society of Ultrasonic Medical Engineering. Grass-roots participants accumulated more than 100000 students. Help western china ultrasound development, hand-in-hand help many, a total of more than 50 people. Ultrasonic medicine forum is held regularly every year. Holding various types of ultrasonic intervention classes, it has established friendly cooperation with many hospitals at home and abroad, and has good social benefits.
