About the department
The Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at the Hospital Neuperlach Munich offers the full range of image-guided diagnostic and interventional therapeutic procedures at the highest level of modern medicine. Medical care can be provided both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The department's specialists annually perform more than 70,000 diagnostic tests, and therefore they have tremendous experience and guarantee an accurate diagnosis, which determines the success of follow-up treatment. The doctors use in their work a modern picture archiving and communication system, thanks to which the specialists from various departments of the hospital have access to the results of patient's diagnostic examination at any time. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Saleh.
Radiologists have state-of-the-art systems for digital radiography, digital fluoroscopy, sonography, mammography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, angiography and other examinations. The radiation protection standards are strictly observed in the department's clinical practice. In addition to non-invasive diagnostic tests, the department's specialists also perform invasive diagnostic ultrasound- and CT-guided procedures, including puncture, drainage and biopsy.
In the field of interventional radiology, the department's medical team conducts therapeutic procedures, which allow the patient to avoid open surgery, while guaranteeing high efficiency of treatment. One of the primary focuses of the specialists' work is balloon dilatation and stent implantation for occlusions and stenoses of the vessels in the abdominal cavity, pelvis and lower limbs, stenoses of the carotid and renal arteries. Of particular interest is also the treatment of tumors using radiofrequency or microwave ablation and chemoembolization. In addition, the department's doctors have a special competence in the placement of port systems for chemotherapy and the formation of vascular access for dialysis. The range of services in interventional radiology is also complemented by uterine artery embolization in women.
