About the department
The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Giessen UKGM offers the full range of accurate diagnostics and modern treatment using therapeutic radioisotopes. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment for scintigraphy, as well as the combined PET-CT method. The doctors of the department have excellent qualifications in the field of radioiodine therapy for thyroid diseases. Despite the high-tech infrastructure, the focus of all the efforts of the medical team is a person with his individual needs and wishes. The department is headed by Dr. med. Dagmar Steiner.
The doctors of the department are experts in conducting examinations using positron emission tomography (PET) in combination with computed tomography (CT). Currently, this study is the most advanced diagnostic imaging method for cancer. It allows not only to imagine the organs and anatomical structures of the human body, but also provides comprehensive information about the metabolic processes that occur in them. The method can be used not only to identify pathological changes, but also to plan the operation, localize the lesion for biopsy. In addition, the PET-CT method is used to examine patients with cardiac and neurological problems. It also serves to monitor the effectiveness of therapeutic measures (surgical treatment, chemotherapy, radiation therapy).
