Hospital for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology - Our Team

Hospital for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology

Modern imaging

We look deep inside you - with modern equipment and imaging methods. The field of radiology is highly diverse and works closely with all medical disciplines. Our task is to identify or rule out diseases and to present their causes. Interventions - minimally invasive operations using imaging methods - enable us to examine and treat you gently. More than 50,000 patients are examined in radiology every year.

Quality in experience and equipment

Digital radiology and qualified specialists

In the radiology centre at Schoen Clinic Neustadt, you can expect modern equipment and imaging procedures in order to “look into the human body”, for example

  • Three fixed X-ray workstations

  • Several mobile X-ray systems

  • EOS X-ray machine

  • Screening unit

  • Spiral computed tomography (CT, 64/128-slice)

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI, 1.5 Tesla)

Our radiology is completely digitalised, we work without film. All departments are directly connected to the image archive. There are direct external connections to cooperation partners. Special evaluation software is used for some investigations. Providing you with optimal care and the best possible medical quality is important to our experts. Our employees therefore regularly take part in qualification measures.

Our diagnostic services are available to you both as an inpatient and as an outpatient. A friendly, professionally experienced and committed team of specialists awaits you.

Medical specialisms:

  • Musculoskeletal disorders

  • Spinal disorders

  • Traumatology

  • Brain and spinal cord diseases (neuroradiology)

Certified centre of excellence

Our specialised radiological centre is certified as a ‘Centre of Excellence for Musculoskeletal Radiology’. This award, granted by the German Radiological Society and the working group ‘Imaging Procedures of the Musculoskeletal System’, represents the highest possible certification level.

EOS X-ray system enables precise 3D full-body images

We use the state-of-the-art technology EOS, which was awarded the Nobel Prize, for example for diseases of the spine and to plan joint replacement operations. Schoen Clinic is the only provider in northern Germany that uses the X-ray system to treat its patients. Compared to conventional X-rays, EOS enables a better assessment of the statics and thus a more precise interpretation of various orthopaedic complaints. The patient is scanned in a special booth. Only one scan is necessary and displays high-quality images from the front and side of the skeleton in its natural position. After that, the images are processed and evaluated using a special software system. 

The result: Thanks to more precise diagnostics, the next treatment steps for the patient as well as operations can be planned even better.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Up to 90% less radiation exposure than with conventional methods such as X-rays
  • Stress-free exam: The scan takes 20 seconds for adults and only 10 seconds for children.
  • 3D x-rays for a precise depiction of the spine
  • Detailed images of the spine under load
