About the department

The diagnostic and interventional radiology department at St. Elisabethen Hospital Frankfurt am Main offers patients a modern, innovative and wide range of imaging diagnostic methods and minimally invasive procedures at the highest level. Doctors always use the latest imaging technology. Research innovations and technical and methodological developments directly benefit the department's patients. The focus is on the earliest possible detection and the most accurate definition and spread of breast cancer and its precursors and subsequent treatment and control. The department cooperates with all clinic departments and provides various types of radiological diagnostics.

The department specializes in diagnosing all diseases, including heart, lungs, cancer, musculoskeletal system, gynaecology and urology diseases. The department's radiologists are exceptionally experienced in interpreting diagnostic images, manipulating needles, and using thin catheter tubes and wires to navigate the body under imaging control. The range of conditions that specialists can treat with interventional radiology is vast and expanding. This type of therapy has many advantages for patients, such as reduced risks, faster recovery, shorter hospital stays, and lower costs.
