In radiology, we produce images and findings as a basis for diagnostics and treatment. Moreover, we are now able to present not only blood vessels, but can also use state-of-the-art technology for treatment – interventional radiology means minimally invasive (tiny incisions) methods for the treatment of dilated or blocked blood vessels without requiring larger incisions.
Diagnostics of the bones, the joints, the thorax and abdominal organs. Examinations of the oesophagus and the gastrointestinal tract, as well as urological and gynaecological diagnostics (imaging).
Examinations of the head (paranasal sinuses with orbitae, jaw region), soft tissue of the neck, thorax, abdomen, brain, cardio-CT, examinations of the spine, bones and joints, CT angiography, polytrauma CT.
- Head with diffusion-weighted sequences + spinal organs (spinal column) with MR myelography
- Soft tissue of the face and neck
- Musculoskeletal diagnostics (joints, bones, soft tissue)
- Thorax/heart, MR mammography
- Abdomen (including the pelvis minor), MRCP
- MR angiography: intracranial vessels (arteries, sinus), extracranial arteries supplying the brain, thoracic vessels, abdominal vessels, peripheral vessels
- Full-body MRI
Angiography involves the visualisation of arteries and veins, as well as frequently their direct treatment. Thin catheters are generally used for these minimally invasive procedures. These methods are so gentle that only a local anaesthetic is required in most cases.
We conduct diagnostic angiography and intervention in all regions of the body, so from head to foot, via the:
- Abdominal artery (also for aneurysm, aorta)
- Visceral and intestinal vessels
- Pelvis-leg arteries
- Renal arteries
- Arteries supplying the brain, as well as bone marrow (in cases of stenosis, e.g. of the jugular, cerebral haemorrhaging, spinal haemorrhaging and vascular malformation)
- Dialysis shunt, downstream imaging, phlebography
As a member of the Breast Centre Eastern Saxony, we perform imaging diagnostics for breast cancer. To do this, we are able to draw on state-of-the-art mammography equipment. It ensures more gentle examinations, while remaining highly precise in the detection of tumours. The equipment enables 3-D imaging in outstanding resolution and can, where necessary, be used to directly initiate follow-on examinations such as biopsies (tissue sampling).
- Magnification mammography
- Pre-operative marking: stereotactic, ultrasound
- Specimen radiography
- Magnetic resonance imaging
Ultrasound examinations of the breast, abdominal organs, thyroid gland and vessels
