Specialized in: adult and pediatric diagnostic, interventional neuroradiology
About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Diagnostic, Interventional Neuroradiology at the Helios Hospital Berlin-Buch offers state-of-the-art systems for imaging diagnostics of pathologies of the central and peripheral nervous system, as well as innovative imaging-guided treatment methods for neurological diseases. The key focus is on the treatment of cerebrovascular diseases, including stroke. To ensure the comprehensive medical care, the specialists cooperate closely with the Departments of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Vascular Surgery, Adult and Pediatric Ophthalmology. The key to successful clinical practice is the use of the cutting-edge imaging systems for diagnostic and therapeutic measures. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Marius Hartmann.
The department has all the modern technologies for the accurate diagnostics and sparing endovascular treatment of diseases of the brain, spinal cord, including their meninges and neighboring structures, peripheral nerves and blood vessels of the nervous system. The progressive CT and MRI systems provide accurate images of the nervous system down to the smallest detail. In addition, the functional and dynamic methods of MRI allow specialists to evaluate nerve tissue metabolism.
The focus of the department’s doctors is on stroke patients. They are provided with emergency medical care around the clock in collaboration with specialists from the related fields (Emergency Service and Stroke Unit). Typically, stroke is treated using catheter techniques (thrombectomy). In addition, the department’s neuroradiologists specialize in the treatment of aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations. All diagnostic and therapeutic procedures comply with standardized national and international protocols.
Many head and neck pathologies (for example, arteriovenous fistulas,skull base tumors, vascular stenosis, etc.) can lead to pulse-synchronous tinnitus, and therefore, the treatment of this complication is also included in the scope of the department’s tasks. The type of treatment is determined depending on the underlying disease, the risks of treatment and the risk of spontaneous hemorrhage in the brain. This type of tinnitus mostly develops due to dural arteriovenous fistulas. In this case, endovascular fistula embolization is the optimal therapy. In some cases, transvenous therapy using special platinum spirals and biological glue can also be used. The doctors can often resort to combination therapy.
