Specialized in: adult and pediatric diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, neuroradiology, radiation therapy

The Department of Adult and Pediatric Diagnostic Radiology, Interventional Radiology, Neuroradiology and Radiation Therapy at the University Hospital Bonn offers the full range of services in these medical fields. The competent doctors of the department work with the state-of-the-art systems for CT, MRI, x-ray, ultrasound, angiography, fluoroscopy and other imaging studies in adults and children. In addition, the department specializes in all modern types of radiation therapy and interventional procedures for the treatment of vascular and oncological diseases. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Daniel Thomas.

The service range of the department includes:

    • Preoperative embolization of vascularized tumors in the head, neck and spine
    • Wada test
    • Vascular lumen closure (embolization)
    • Periradicular and pain therapy for back pain
    • Ultrasound examinations
