About the department

The Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at the University Hospital Erlangen offers the full range of services in this ​​medical field. The department specializes in the imaging diagnostics and interventional therapy of diseases of all organs and systems. To provide comprehensive medical care, the department has the very latest systems for all modern radiological diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, for example, MRI, CT, ultrasound, digital X-ray, digital subtraction angiography, imaging-guided intervention procedures. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Michael Uder.

The main clinical focuses of the department include the diagnostics of cancers, joint, bone and soft tissue pathologies, breast diseases in women, cardiovascular diseases, diagnostics in accidents and emergency clinical cases, as well as therapeutic procedures in the field of interventional radiology for the treatment of vascular diseases, tumors and pain therapy.

A great advantage of the department is active and productive research activities aimed at improving the methods of diagnosis and treatment in the field of radiology. The main research focuses of the department include optimization of radiation dose and image quality in computed tomography, MRI imaging to identify functional and metabolic disorders, interventional radiology, imaging studies of the cardiovascular system, breast, etc.

The range of diagnostic services of the department includes:

  • Examinations of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord)
    • Computed tomography (CT), also contrast-enhanced
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), also contrast-enhanced
    • Ultrasound examinations
  • Diagnosis of otolaryngologic diseases (diseases of the throat, nose and ears)
    • Computed tomography (CT), also contrast-enhanced
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), also contrast-enhanced
    • Ultrasound examinations  (most often used to diagnose pathologies in the neck)
  • Diagnosis of the respiratory system
    • Conventional x-ray studies

  • Diagnosis of the musculoskeletal system
    • Conventional radiography
    • Ultrasound examinations
    • CT
    • MRI
  • Breast diagnosis
    • Mammography for breast cancer detection
    • Breast ultrasound (including elastography)
    • MRI and MRI-guided biopsy (vacuum biopsy, puncture biopsy)
    • Galactography (imaging of the milk ducts in the mammary glands with the help of an x-ray machine)
    • Tomosynthesis
  • Other diagnostic options

In the field of interventional radiology, the department offers the following therapy methods:

  • Drainage installation (CT-guided)
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Balloon angioplasty
  • Stenting
  • Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE)
  • Selective internal radiation therapy
  • Treatment of vascular malformations
  • Renal denervation

Curriculum vitae

Prof. Dr. med. Michael Uder studied Human Medicine at the Saarland University in Homburg, where he also underwent board certification in Radiology. In 2002, the doctor defended his doctoral dissertation on the side effects of radiopaque drugs on the kidneys. From 2003 to 2009, he served as a Professor in the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at the University Hospital Erlangen. Since 2009, the Professor took the post of the Head of this department.

Dr. Uder is also the first Chairman of the Bavarian Radiological Society and the Chairman of the Academy for Advanced Training in Radiology. The doctor also chairs the Working Group of the German Radiological Society (sponsored by the Professional Association of German Radiologists).
