Welcome to the Department of Neuroradiology at the Neurology Center at Heidelberg University Hospital
Neuroradiology involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the nervous system including the brain, the spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. The rapid development of techniques and methods in recent years has led to great advances in neuroradiology. For example, we can now use cross-sectional imaging to make high-resolution images of the structures of the nervous system in fine detail with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and also perform non-invasive examinations of nerve function and metabolism in the brain with MRI. These techniques are the basis of a precise diagnosis and are a prerequisite for the effective treatment of diseases of the nervous system.
In the Neuroradiology Department, our experienced team of specialists performs more than 25,000 cross-sectional scans (CT and MRI) every year. In addition, we offer innovative, minimally invasive treatment methods for pain therapy and for vascular diseases of the brain and spinal cord. Every year, we carry out more than 1,000 such examinations and procedures in our department.
We specialize in
- magnetic resonance imaging (MRI),
- computed tomography (CT),
- and angiography and endovascular therapy.
Physicians and support staff speak English and can therefore respond to your individual situation. In addition to the examinations and treatment we undertake here, we also evaluate examinations and treatment that have been made elsewhere in order to advise you on additional treatment.
We would be pleased to assist you if you have any questions or suggestions.
