About the department
The Department of Diagnostic Radiology at the DKD HELIOS Clinic Wiesbaden offers the full range of services in its area of specialization. The medical facility began its work in 1995, and since then has been successfully conducting high-precision diagnostic examinations of internal organs, skeletal bones, joints and blood vessels. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic devices, with the help of which radiologists can detect the slightest pathological changes at the early stages of the disease, which makes the subsequent treatment more effective. The main activities of the department include radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and digital subtraction angiography. Modern diagnostic equipment meets all the current requirements and allows providing patients with the maximum level of safety during diagnostic examinations, protecting the body from the negative consequences of radiation exposure. The department is headed by Dr. med. Peter Grebe.
The department conducts computed tomography to examine all organs and anatomical structures of the human body. It is one of the most informative methods of instrumental diagnostics. The essence of the diagnostic technique is multilayer scanning of the target areas of the body with X-rays. At the same time, CT scanning differs from classical X-ray, because it allows obtaining images of the examined area of the body in different projections, while X-ray reproduces the image only in one projection. CT scanning is a fast, safe and completely painless diagnostic method. To obtain more accurate data, the department also conducts contrast-enhanced CT scans. The contrast agents are often used when examining the brain, chest, liver, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, adrenal glands, salivary glands, pelvic organs and blood vessels.
Magnetic resonance imaging is another informative diagnostic method. The diagnostic procedure is successfully used in the department's clinical practice as well. This method of examination is fundamentally different from X-ray or computed tomography, since it is based on the use of magnetic waves. MRI is of particular value for determining the condition of soft tissues: it clarifies and supplements the information obtained during computed tomography. The main area of magnetic resonance imaging application is brain diagnostics. Magnetic resonance imaging can also be conducted with contrast enhancement (if clinically indicated). Like CT scanning, MRI is absolutely painless and safe, since it involves a small amount of radiation exposure to the human body.
The department also offers bone mineral density measurement using the DEXA method (osteodensitometry). This type of examination allows confirming or excluding the presence of osteoporosis. The diagnostic technique allows doctors to assess a mineral state of bones and the comparative indicators of the density of different areas of the skeleton. Osteodensitometry is a painless procedure that takes only 10-20 minutes.
