About the department

The Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the Hospital Waldbrol Oberberg offers the full service range in these medical fields. It has state-of-the-art technical equipment, while all diagnostic test results are stored in a special database in digital format. The department is headed by Dr. med. Markus Spanagel.

The diagnostic and therapeutic procedures can be carried out both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The department structurally consists of isolated rooms for radiological diagnostics, computed tomography, mammography, sonography, angiography, scintigraphy, etc. The department annually carries out more than 65,000 radiological examinations, which indicates the credibility of the medical facility in the region.

Especially popular is digital radiography, which is used to examine the skeletal system and joints, thoracic organs (lungs and heart), gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract. The department's specialists are proud of their successful experience in functional diagnostics of the gastrointestinal tract. The priority focuses also include digital mammography, which is supplemented by sonography and ultrasound-guided biopsy, if necessary.

Since November 2010, computed tomography has been carried out on the state-of-art device – SOMATOM Definition Flash by Siemens. This is the high-end computer tomograph with two radiation sources, which allows the doctor to obtain image of the whole body in seconds. As a rule, the tomograph ican be used in the diagnostics of tumors, spinal disc herniation, vascular malformations, as well as in the follow-up monitoring of stroke patients.
