About the department

The department of diagnostic and interventional radiology at Academic Hospital DRK Berlin-Westend is engaged in extended and detailed diagnostic of various diseases with the help of radiology techniques. The diagnostic equipment of the department is certified and regularly controlled by Association for Technical Inspection (TÜV) and Medical Association, which means that the devices meet all safety requirements. Furthermore, the radiology department closely cooperates with intestinal and breast centres of DRK Berlin-Westend and other hospitals. In addition, the experienced personnel of the department provides minimally invasive interventions under the X-ray and ultrasound control.

The primary focus is a highly-precise diagnosis of a broad spectrum of clinical conditions. The qualified medical personnel provides ultrasound, X-ray, MRI, CT and other kinds of imaging of various anatomic regions. The focal point is breast examination. Moreover, doctors perform gentle vascular and non-vascular interventions (plastic and implantation procedures).
