About the department
The Department of Adult and Pediatric Diagnostic, Interventional Radiology at the Marienhaus Hospital St. Elisabeth Neuwied offers the full range of medical services in these fields. The department cooperates closely with all departments of the hospital, providing modern radiological examinations for all patients. The department has state-of-the-art medical equipment, which serves for the diagnostics and for imaging-guided therapeutic procedures. The department strictly adheres to all radiation protection standards. The department is headed by PD Dr. med. Götz Lutterbey.
In addition to classical radiological, ultrasound scans and fluoroscopy, the department also carries out high-resolution computed and magnetic resonance imaging, digital subtraction angiography, etc. It is noteworthy that the department is the only medical facility in the region, which has an open device for the whole-body MRI. The patient is not placed in a closed tunnel of the MRI system, as compared with the classic MRI scanning. This is especially important for patients with claustrophobia, as well as for children, since this procedure usually causes a severe emotional stress in young patients.
In the field of interventional radiology, the priority is given to the treatment of vascular diseases within the specialized Catheter Laboratory. The doctors mostly provide treatment for patients with vascular stenoses and occlusions. To restore vascular patency, they use both mechanical (thrombectomy) and drug (thrombolysis) techniques. The service range is complemented by the treatment of tumors using intra-arterial chemoembolization and CT-guided pain therapy.
The department's range of medical services includes:
- Diagnostic radiology
- Classic radiography
- Computed tomography (CT), including examinations in children
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including examinations in children
