Specialized in: radiology, neuroradiology
The Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology is a central department in the Alfried Krupp Hospital. The Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology at the Alfried Krupp Hospital in Essen, under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. René Chapot, has a large quantity of modern equipment to ensure fast and safer diagnostics to help with the therapy of all different types of illnesses. The department, which covers radiology and neuroradiology, comprises of the entire range of conventional X-ray diagnostics including mammography and the modern sectional imaging techniques of computer-assisted tomography (CAT) and magnetic resonance tomography. In the field of diagnostics, special emphasis is paid on MRI of the heart (cardiac MRI) and of the various joints, e.g. the knee or the shoulder (MRI arthrography).
In addition, all invasive-diagnostic measures such as angiography, myelography , or the CAT- and ultrasound-guided collection of tissue samples are standard procedures performed here. The main focus of the Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology at the Alfried Krupp Hospital in Essen, under the direction of Prof. Dr. med.
