About the department
The Department of Neuroradiology at the University Hospital Mainz offers the full range of services in the field of neuroradiological diagnostics and interventional therapy of neurological diseases. The department has more than 50 years of clinical experience, therefore it guarantees patients advanced knowledge and unique achievements in this focus. The department’s significant achievement is the certification of the German Society for Interventional Radiology and Minimally Invasive Therapy (DeGIR). The Chief Physician of the department is Prof. Dr. med. M.Sc. Marc Brockmann.
It should be noted that the department has state-of-the-art imaging systems that allow for highly accurate diagnostics of the smallest pathological changes in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord, skull, spine), as well as sparing minimally invasive interventions to treat these changes.
The service range of the department includes:
- Conventional X-ray studies
- Computed tomography (CT)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Myelography (contrast-enhanced X-ray study of the liquor-conducting pathways of the spinal cord)
- Angiography (contrast-enhanced study of blood vessels)
- Biopsy followed by histological examination
- Lumbar puncture
- Endovascular procedures for vascular closure
- Embolization (for example, in arteriovenous angiomas, fistulas)
- Coiling for the treatment of aneurysms
- Preoperative embolization of glomus tumors of the skull base
- Embolization in acute facial and nasopharyngeal bleeding after severe injuries, operations, or in the case of unstable nose bleeding without any apparent causes
- Procedures for vascular dilation
- Recanalization to improve blood circulation or restore cerebral vascular patency during stroke
- Intra-arterial thrombolysis
- Balloon dilatation in carotid stenosis
- Stenting in carotid stenosis
- Minimally invasive pain therapy to eliminate intervertebral disc and spinal pain
- Facet joint block
- Sacroiliac joint block
- Thermal coagulation
- Periradicular therapy
- Vertebroplasty to treat pathological and osteoporotic vertebral fractures
- Other diagnostic and therapeutic measures
