means continuous innovative development in line with scientific and technical progress.
In the Clinic for Radiology, specialised methods are used to systematically examine patients with regard to their symptoms and clinical issues; the findings are supplemented with the clinical data of the referring areas of specialisation. The focus is a holistic one and centres round the patient.
Interdisciplinary exchange and networking of the various medical disciplines is particularly important to targeted therapy. Interaction amongst the various specialisations is elemental, particularly where personalised treatment is concerned.
In this context, radiology employs state-of-the-art apparatus-based technologies that are continuously being developed and permit ever-more precise statements about internal relationships of the body, while at the same time reducing stressful influences.
Flat panel detector technology in the field of conventional X-ray diagnostics or in the fluoroscopy modality for displaying the vessels has contributed considerably towards limiting radiation doses and improving image quality. In addition to qualitative improvements in imaging, the evolution of computer tomography (CT) has also provided new dimensions of cardiac imaging, with valuable diagnostic findings for coronary vessels, for example. Another proven technology is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with a broad and steadily growing field of application without exposing patients to X-rays. In the field of breast diagnostics, digital mammography and its combination with ultrasound examination provide very reliable results with minimised risk.
All of these diagnostic methods also form the basis for a variety of therapeutic approaches in radiology. Interventional recanalisation of the vessels is a classic field in this regard. Modern approaches to tumour therapy in the form of targeted destruction through heat and/or embolisation are additional modern fields of application for radiological methods on offer in the Clinic for Radiology.
The range of services offered by the Clinic for Radiology seamlessly extends to all standards of radiological diagnostics and intervention, including neuroradiology. Among other things, these include:
- Conventional X-ray diagnostics
- All necessary routine and special examinations in the field of conventional X-ray diagnostics
- 24-hour on-call duty and medical emergency call service
- Angiographic diagnostics and therapy
- Diagnostic angiography, PTA, insertion of stents below the aortic bifurcation
- Mammographic diagnostics and pre-operative wire marking of suspicious findings in collaboration with the Clinic for Gynaecology and Obstetrics
- CT diagnostics
- CT examinations including multiplanar reconstruction and advanced image processing of all regions of the body on a 16-slice spiral CT
- MRT diagnostics
- Examinations of all regions of the body on a 1.5-Tesla magnetic resonance tomograph
- Nuclear medical diagnostics
- Scintigraphic examinations of bones, heart and thyroid, as well as sentinel-node scintigraphy
Large pieces of MRT, CT and nuclear-medical equipment are used in cooperation with the Group Practice for Radiology and Nuclear Medicine of Pirmasens.
