About the department

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Ulm offers the full range of services in this field. Of particular interest are the diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the thyroid gland, heart, brain and cancers. The department is engaged in active research, thanks to which many innovative methods of molecular imaging and therapy are being introduced into the clinical practice. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Ambros Johannes Beer.

Radioisotope diagnostics serves for the imaging and quantitative estimation of the important body functions, such as blood circulation, metabolism, and functions of the vital organs (brain, heart, kidneys, bone tissue, thyroid gland).

The diagnostic options of the department include:

  • Combined PET-CT method in the case of:
    • Lung tumors
    • Lymph node cancer (malignant lymphoma)
    • Head and neck tumors
    • Colon cancer
    • Bone tumors
    • Skin tumors (melanoma)
    • Neuroendocrine tumors
    • Prostate cancer
    • Alzheimer's disease
    • Neurodegenerative diseases
    • Cardiac diseases
    • Joint diseases and stability control of implanted prostheses
  • Scintigraphy
  • SPECT
  • SPECT-CT
  • Thyroid diagnostics 
    • Ultrasound examinations
    • Scintigraphy
    • Puncture biopsy
    • SPECT-CT
    • PET-CT
  • Other diagnostic methods

The department offers the following treatment methods:

  • Radioiodine therapy for the treatment of thyroid diseases
  • Radiopeptide therapy for the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
  • Lu-177-PSMA radionuclide therapy for the treatment of certain stages of metastatic prostate cancer
  • Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) for the treatment of liver tumors and metastases
  • Radium-223 therapy (Xofigo®) for the treatment of patients with painful bone metastases, prostate cancer, distant metastases
  • Other therapeutic options
