Asst. Prof. Dr. Nitra Piyavisetpat has worked in the field of diagnostic radiology for more than 20 years. During her 16-year stint as a lecturer at Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Medicine, she also practiced at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital of the Thai Red Cross Society.
Determined to apply the radiological standards of Thailand’s leading medical school to a private hospital to ensure accurate diagnosis and effective treatment, Dr. Nitra actively promotes collaboration with multidisciplinary teams. Each team comprises medical specialists from various fields including a radiologist, a pathologist, a physician and a surgeon.
This approach allows for the input of medical specialists to discussions on the condition of individual patients via seminars or meetings to ensure all assessments are well rounded. Clinical data are presented so that the team can efficiently agree on diagnosis and a treatment plan, thus guaranteeing the most effective medical services.
Multidisciplinary teams are also driving constant learning among medical personnel. At the MedPark Hospital, radiologists provide counselling in the Intensive Care Unit / Critical Care Unit (ICU, CCU) to support the delivery of treatments in a faster and more efficient manner. The MedPark Hospital aims to become a hospital specializing in complicated diseases and diagnostic radiology. Here, radiologists give timely advice to primary doctors and contribute to the hospital’s goals.

MedPark executives have demonstrated their determination, commitment and goals to develop services and education for the best interests of patients.
