About the department

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Diagnostic, Interventional Radiology at the Hospital Schwabing Munich offers the full range of imaging diagnostic tests and image-guided interventional therapeutic procedures. Medical care is provided on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The team of the department's doctors provides its services to both adults and young patients. The department has at its disposal high-tech equipment, which allows the doctors to detect the slightest impairments in the anatomical structures of the human body. The diagnostic results are considered at regular boards with the participation of all necessary specialists in related fields. In addition, the department uses an innovative system for storing and managing diagnostic data, allowing doctors in all departments to have unhindered access to the patient's imaging results at any time. The department's radiologists strictly adhere to the current radiation protection standards, and therefore the radiation has a minimal effect on the human body. The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. Andreas Saleh.

The patients' health is in the safe hands of the highly qualified medical team consisting of 55 employees. The department annually provides its diagnostic and therapeutic services to more than 55,000 patients, which confirms the exceptional competence of the department's specialists. The department's doctors have at their disposal state-of-the-art digital X-ray systems and X-ray equipment with pulsed radiation, ultrasound scanners, two multislice computed tomography scanners, two powerful 1 Tesla and 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging systems, devices for angiography and interventional therapeutic procedures on the vessels, mammography scanners for a comprehensive breast examination in women. The medical equipment meets the current requirements of German medicine and allows the doctors to detect various pathologies at the initial stages, prior to the manifestation of the first symptoms.

The department's diagnostic equipment is adapted for imaging tests in children of all age groups. Whenever possible, ultrasound scanning or magnetic resonance imaging are preferred. If X-ray is still required, then it is performed in such a way that the child receives a minimum dose of radiation. Of particular interest in the field of pediatric radiology is the diagnostics of abdominal diseases, diagnostic and therapeutic puncture procedures, CT and MRI scanning of all organs of the child's body, as well as angiography. Some diagnostic tests in children are performed under general anesthesia.

The range of the department's therapeutic interventional procedures includes many options, ranging from interventional pain therapy (blockade, infiltration), placement of port systems for dialysis and chemotherapy, balloon dilation and stent implantation for the treatment of occlusive peripheral arterial disease of the lower limbs, radiofrequency ablation, embolization and chemoembolization for the treatment of tumors to the correction of vascular malformations and treatment of pelvic congestion syndrome. Prior to any therapeutic procedure, radiologists jointly with the specialists from related fields assess the reasonability of such treatment and the expected result.
