About the Department of Nuclear Medicine at University Hospital Duesseldorf

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Duesseldorf offers the full range of diagnostics and treatment with radioactive substances. It conducts many scintigraphic examinations, ranging from the diagnostics of the thyroid gland and skeleton to amino acid metabolism studies in brain tumors and metabolic studies in other malignant tumors. The department has at its disposal a specialized outpatient clinic for the diagnostics and treatment of thyroid diseases. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Frederik Giesel.

Along with several traditional gamma cameras, the department has two SPECT cameras, each of which is equipped with several detectors. The diagnostic capabilities are also complemented by the very latest techniques, for example, positron emission tomography (PET). This method is one of the most informative, because using it the doctor can see a complete picture of glucose metabolism in cancer, cardiac, neurological and psychiatric diseases.

The service range of the department includes:

  • Diagnostics and treatment of thyroid diseases
  • Radioiodine therapy for treating tumors, in particular, thyroid tumors
  • Diagnostics of coronary heart diseases and complications after myocardial infarction
  • Scintigraphy
    • Thyroid and parathyroid scintigraphy
    • Scintigraphy to detect oncopathology
      • Whole-body scintigraphy
      • Radioactive gallium scintigraphy
      • Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy with octreotide
      • MIBG scintigraphy
      • Scintigraphy using cancer embryonic antigen (CEA)
    • Scintigraphy in heart diseases
      • Myocardial scintigraphy
      • Radionuclide ventriculography
    • Brain scintigraphy
      • IBZM brain scintigraphy
      • Brain perfusion scintigraphy
      • Cerebrospinal fluid scintigraphy
      • Dopamine transporter scintigraphy (FP-CIT)
    • Kidney scintigraphy
      • Kidney tubular scintigraphy
      • Glomerular kidney scintigraphy
      • Static kidney scintigraphy
    • Scintigraphy of the blood system
      • Determination of the bleeding source
      • Schilling test
      • Scintigraphy with labeled red blood cells
      • Leukocyte scintigraphy
    • Scintigraphy of the gastrointestinal tract
      • Esophageal scintigraphy
      • Stomach scintigraphy
      • Salivary gland scintigraphy
    • Lymphatic scintigraphy
    • Lung scintigraphy
    • Liver scintigraphy
    • Spleen scintigraphy
  • Positron emission tomography
  • Other diagnostic and treatment methods

Curriculum vitae

Prof. Dr. med. Frederik Giesel heads the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Duesseldorf. He also holds a position as a Visiting Professor at Osaka University in Japan. He has also worked as a Visiting Professor at Stanford University in the USA and Yonsei University in South Korea.

Prof. Giesel graduated from the Universities of Mainz and Heidelberg in Germany, then worked for some time at the National Institutes of Health Bethesda, USA. Dr. med. Frederik Giesel completed his residency at the University Hospital Heidelberg and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). At the same time, he trained at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, and Stanford University, USA. During his residency, he also underwent training and earned a Master of Business Administration degree from the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management. After board certification and habilitation, Prof. Giesel received an additional specialization in nuclear medicine at the University Hospital Heidelberg.

Prof. Frederik Giesel founded the first integrated seminar series "Virtual Anatomy and Pathophysiology" at Heidelberg University. He has published more than 230 scientific papers in print and online publications. In close collaboration with Prof. Haberkorn's Research Group, the specialist developed the FAP ligand at the University Hospital Heidelberg.
