About the department

The Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at the Hirslanden Salem-Spital Bern provides the full range of medical services in the area of its specialization. The department's doctors offer their patients all modern imaging examinations, as well as imaging-guided therapeutic interventional procedures. The Chief Physician of the department is Dr. med. Lars Diedrichsen.

The department maintains high quality of medical care, but the important role is given to a humane attitude towards patients. The state-of-art medical equipment ensures the reduction of radiation dose during diagnostic tests, strict compliance of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with radiation protection standards, as well as maximum comfort for the patient.

All results of imaging examinations are stored in a special picture archiving and communication system (PACS), so the specialists from other departments of the clinic have access to a database of diagnostic results.

The department's clinical focuses include:

  • Diagnostic radiology
    • Classical radiography of the bones and internal organs
    • Fluorography
    • Ultrasound scanning of the neck (including the thyroid gland), breast, organs of the abdominal cavity and small pelvis (less commonly, examinations of the joints and other anatomical structures)
    • Computed tomography (CT)
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    • EOS diagnostic imaging system (primarily for preoperative and postoperative examinations in orthopedic and spinal surgeries)
    • DEXA densitometry for the assessment of bone mineral density (for osteoporosis)
  • Interventional radiology
    • Imaging-guided biopsy
    • Imaging-guided puncture
    • Imaging-guided drainage
    • Pain therapy for chronic back and joint pain (imaging-guided infiltration)
  • Other diagnostic and therapeutic techniques
