Radiology in Hamburg

A precise look at your insides

The Radiology Department in Hamburg offers you the entire spectrum of radiological diagnostics with the exception of mammography. With more than 60,000 examinations and interventions per year, our qualified team ensures precise radiological diagnostics and treatment for outpatients and inpatients. State-of-the-art imaging methods are used such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We focus on carrying out minimally invasive examination and treatment methods using CT, with ultrasound and fluoroscopy.

Modern techniques in diagnostic

In radiology, state-of-the-art imaging techniques are used to look inside the human body, for example:

  • a computer tomograph (CT, 64 lines)
  • a magnetic resonance tomograph (MRT, 1.5 Tesla)
  • four conventional X-ray workstations
  • four mobile X-ray units
  • one digital multifunction fluoroscopy unit with angiography
  • one high-end sonography unit with elastography and contrast medium ultrasound
  • a bone density measuring station

We have a RIS/PACS system as an integral part of the hospital information system, with a completely digital workflow from the request for findings to the transmission of a findings document generated via voice recognition. Your images and findings are thus quickly transferred to the wards and outpatient departments of our hospital, eliminating long waiting times for examination results.

Non-invasive diagnostic and treatment procedures

One of the main focuses of our radiology department is the implementation of minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment procedures using CT, ultrasound and fluoroscopy. Our experts have different areas of specialisation.

Vascular interventional procedures

Arterial recanalisations (balloon angioplasty (PTA), Drug-Coated Balloon (DCB) angioplasty, stent, stent graft,  Intraarterial fibrinolytic therapy) in the abdomen and on peripheral arteries

Vascular embolisation (Microcoil, occlusion bodies, particles, liquid embolic agents (Histoacryl, Lipiodol, etc.)) in the abdomen and on bronchial arteries

Venous interventions

Port system implantation

Permanent catheter implantation

Tumour-related obstruction of the superior vena cava

Vena cava filter placement and removal

Foreign body retrieval

Venous thrombosis

Varicocele embolisation

Percutaneous procedures for hemodialysis shunts

Adrenal vein sampling (AVS)

Endovascular procedures on the hepatobiliary system

Transarterial embolisation (TAE), conventional transarterial chemoembolisation (c-TACE) of primary liver cancer (HCC) and liver metastases

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS)  for patients with liver cirrhosis, portal hypertension, refractory ascites, esophageal varices.

Portal vein embolisation (PVE) before planned hepatic resection

Endovascular embolisation of blood vessels and organs (splenic (artery) embolisation, uterine fibroid embolisation (UFE), erectile dysfunction (Impotence), pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVM))

Transjugular liver/renal biopsy

Percutaneous Transhepatic Cholangiodrainage (PTCD) for patients with mechanical cholestasis and unobstructed bile ducts (Postoperative bile leak)

Pulmonary interventions

Bronchial-artery embolisation and pAVM

Interventional radiology treatment for pulmonary embolism

Percutaneous interventions

Ultrasound/CT-guided biopsy (thoracic, abdominal, soft tissue)

Thermal ablation of tumors in the liver, kidney, lung, soft tissue and bones

Drainage systems (thoracic, abdominal, soft tissue)

CT guided lumbar sympathectomy

Percutaneous radiologic gastrostomy (PRG)

You should feel safe with us!

During consultation, your specialist will discuss with you all available treatment options. Together you will determine which treatment is best for you. In many cases, these minimally-invasive procedures can avoid surgery and thus a longer inpatient stay for you. Local anaesthesia is usually enough. In special cases, however, a general anaesthetic can be administered at any time by an anaesthetist from the Department of Anaesthesiology.
