Vivantes Humboldt Hospital Berlin
Department of Radiology and Interventional Therapy (333737)
Specialized in: radiology, and interventional therapy
The Department of Radiology and Interventional Therapy at the Vivantes Humboldt Hospital offers a full range of services in the relevant areas of specialization. The main diagnostic services include projection radiography, X-ray computed tomography, MRI, ultrasound and angiography. All these methods allow doctors to accurately identify the causes and prognosis of diseases, and therefore, provide appropriate treatment. The head of the department is Priv.-Doz. Dr. Karsten Krüger.
The department also uses a relatively new field of medicine - interventional radiology. Imaging methods are used for the targeted treatment of vascular diseases, tumors or pain management. They allow precise positioning of devices for appropriate intervention and direct them so as to accurately reach the focus of the disease.
The advantage of the department is modern equipment. The entire work process is performed in digital form, which significantly shortens the waiting time for results after research and their interpretation by the doctor. The department uses a very fast computed tomography device with a low level of radiation (radiation exposure).
The department treats vascular diseases, such as occlusive disease of the arteries, widening of the lumen of the main artery, the so-called aortic aneurysms, as well as treatment of tumors, for example, fibroids (benign uterine tumors) and liver tumors. The department maintains close cooperation with the Departments of Vascular and Abdominal surgery, Neurology, Nephrology, Gastroenterology, Cardiology and Gynecology.
The department is the certified center of the German Society for Interventional Radiology (DEGIR). In addition, it is a member of various centers of the network of Vivantes hospitals, which unites specialists from various disciplines: Nord Cancer Center, Nord Center for Vascular Medicine, Fibrotic Center, Gynecologic Oncology Center and Center for Incontinence and Disease Management.
The diseases diagnosed and treated in the department are malignant and benign oncological diseases (eg, liver tumors and fibromas), pathological changes in the blood vessels, occlusion of vessels, aneurysms, vascular bleeding and portal hypertension.

- Projection radiography
- X-ray studies (X-rays with moving images)
