Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology (568122)
Specialized in: diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology
About the department
The Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden offers the full range of imaging diagnostics and minimally invasive therapy of diseases of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art CT and MRI systems, which allow the doctors to obtain the structural and functional information about the nervous system, as well as to examine the metabolic processes. The therapeutic options include the effective catheter procedures for the treatment of acute and chronic vascular diseases of the brain and spinal cord. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Jennifer Linn.

- Diagnostic neuroradiology
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- MR angiography
- Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging
- Susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI)
- MR spectroscopy
- Functional MRI
- Computed tomography (CT)
- CT angiography
- Perfusion CT
- CT with 3D reconstruction

- Aneurysm clipping
- Treatment of arteriovenous malformations
- Treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas
- Carotid stenting
- Tumor embolization (especially head and neck tumors)
- Computed tomography-guided interventions
- Pain therapy in spinal pain
- Therapy in cerebrospinal fluid leak (liquorrhea) (blood patch procedure)
- Other diagnostic and therapeutic options
Prof Linn studied Human Medicine at the Saarland University and the Free University of Brussels. Jennifer Linn defended her doctoral thesis at the Institute of Neurology at the Technical University of Munich. In 2010, she was habilitated in Hemorrhagic Stroke, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.
Since October 9, 2014, Prof. Dr. med. Jennifer Linn has headed the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology at the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus Dresden. Prior to this, the Professor held the position of the Senior Physician in the Department of Neuroradiology and the Head of the Research Section at the University Hospital of Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Dr. Linn specializes in the early diagnostics of various types of stroke. Of particular interest to her are microangiopathies (diseases of the small blood vessels of the brain, which in many cases can lead to a stroke in the elderly, causing the hemorrhages and acute disorders of the cerebral circulation). The Head of the Department has repeatedly received scholarships of the German Research Foundation. Also her achievements include the Kurt Decker Prize of the German Society of Neuroradiology, the title of the Visiting Professor in the Department of Neuroradiology at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
