About the department

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the Charite University Hospital Berlin offers the full range of radioisotope diagnostics and treatment using radionuclides. Of particular interest to the department's specialists are the diagnostics and therapy of cancers, diseases of the nervous system, heart, musculoskeletal system, ENT pathologies, surgical diseases, disorders of the urological and gynecological sphere. The department's doctors carry out outpatient diagnostics, inpatient and outpatient treatment in accordance with the guidelines of professional societies. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Winfried Brenner.

The department is equipped with all the innovative equipment available in nuclear medicine. For example, the department performs all types of scintigraphy (including whole body scintigraphy), SPECT, advanced hybrid examinations (SPECT-CT, PET-CT, PET-MR). In addition, the department has several radiochemical modules, including cyclotron for the synthesis of radioactive isotopes for SPECT and PET, as well as for the creation of radioisotope drugs.
