Radiology

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. 

Combining Expertise and Technology

Modern imaging methods

In our Radiology Department, state-of-the-art imaging methods are used to look at the inside of the human body, such as 

  • computer tomography (CT, 64 lines)
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRT, 1.5 Tesla)
  • 4 conventional X-ray stations
  • a digital multi-functional fluoroscopy system with angiography
  • a high-end sonography system with elastography and contrast medium ultrasound

The Specialist Radiology Centre has been working fully digitally for many years. In this way, your images and findings can be quickly transferred to the wards and outpatient departments of our hospital. This means no long waits for examination results.

Our range of treatment options:

  • Minimally invasive examination and treatment methods
  • Computer tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Conventional X-ray diagnostics
  • Digital fluoroscopy/angiography
  • Ultrasound/sonography

Gentle examination and treatment methods

Radiology focuses on carrying out gentle, minimally invasive examination and treatment methods using CT, with ultrasound and fluoroscopy. For example, our experts often carry out tissue biopsies for histologic diagnosis, pain therapy using infiltration in the area of the locomotor system and tumour sclerotherapy (embolisation).

The selection of your suitable treatment method takes place in direct discussion with you and the staff treating you at the hospital. Using these gentle procedures, surgery can be avoided in many cases, and therefore a lengthy inpatient stay. Often, local anaesthesia is sufficient. In exceptional cases, a general anaesthetic in the Radiology Department, administered by the anaesthesia experts, is possible at any time. The relevant procedure is explained to you in detail during a clarification discussion beforehand. You will also be presented with alternative treatment options.
