The facilities in the UNC Radiology Department include X-Ray Diagnostics, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Angiography, Gamma Camera, Ultrasound, Computed Radiography performing over 75,000 examinations per year.[16]

The Centre was founded in 1983 and owes a lot to the vision and single handed efforts of Professor Mohamed Ghoneim for its existence.[17] The Urology Foundation offer grant for visiting Mansoura, Egypt to attend the international training course on “Techniques in Reconstructive Urology”.

UNC is now approximately 85 percent digital, enabling physicians to access and review patients' diagnostic images and information electronically and make quick and sound care decisions. The newly implemented bilingual system will greatly increase efficiency of the healthcare facility by providing integrated patient information such as demographics, reports, orders and images at one desktop.[18]
