About the department

The department of radiology, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology at the Academic Hospital Neuwerk Monchengladbach provides a full range of services of radiotherapy and diagnostics. The department is equipped with advanced technology systems for high-precision imaging diagnostic studies and image-guided therapeutic procedures. The department employs 16 highly experienced specialists who provide medical care at the highest level. Doctors apply a complex and interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of patients. The department cooperates with the Joanna Etienne Hospital, so patients can be sure that they will receive a high level of knowledge and excellent service. In addition, specialists pay due attention to radiation protection for all types of radiation diagnostics.

The radiology, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology department is more than just "looking at images" and making diagnoses based on them. Doctors can also treat various conditions with image-guided procedures. The main direction in interventional radiology is used to treat vascular and neoplastic diseases.
