Radiology and nuclear medicine treatment in Germany

The Radiology Clinics and Nuclear Medicine Clinic operated by Paul Gerhardt Diakonie offer the entire spectrum of radiological examination procedures from high-resolution imaging to minimally invasive image-guided operations and therapeutic techniques that can also be performed on an outpatient basis.

Radiology services

Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT)

  • Non-invasive imaging of blood vessels using multidetector CT (all areas of body) including multi-dimensional reconstructions for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes   
  • CT-guided minimally invasive interventions to obtain body tissue (biopsy), insert drainages and for tumor ablation (radiofrequency ablation), pain therapy and vertebroplasty
  • Virtual endoscopy (e.g. virtual colonography, bronchoscopy)
  • Dental CT


  • Sonographic diagnostics of all potential conditions in the thoracic and abdominal areas and in the extremities and soft tissues
  • Color-coded doppler sonography of arteries and veins with flow measurement and evaluation 
  • Sonography-guided puncture for biopsy or drainage insertion
  • Joint sonography
  • Thyroid diagnostics

Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) / Interventions

  • Minimally invasive diagnostics and therapy including recanalisation of stenoses and occlusions by means of balloon dilatation or stent implantation and for lysis in case of vascular diseases 
  • Chemoembolization for local tumor therapy in case of liver tumors
  • Minimally invasive location of bleeding sites and therapy with particles or coils
  • Minimally invasive treatment of uterine fibroids (fibroid embolization); interdisciplinary treatment in collaboration with Gynecology Clinic (head consultant Prof. Dr. U. Ulrich)
  • Image-guided central venous port implantation

Magnetic resonance tomography (imaging)

  • All areas of body
  • Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP)
  • Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA)
  • Special and concluding investigation of space-occupying lesions of the liver with liver-specific CM
  • MR enteroclysis

Conventional radiology

  • Radiological imaging using standardized projection images and special fluoroscopic techniques for all areas of the body: skeleton, head and thorax, chest, abdomen (gastrointestinal examinations, double contrast examinations and examination of the small intestine using the Sellink method), as well as kidneys, gall bladder and bile ducts
  • Expertise and quality control ensure that examinations are performed with minimal exposure to radiation.


  • Whole spectrum of mammography, breast sonography and biopsy


  • Digital production and storage of images, patient data and corresponding test results
  • Standardized working environment and efficient diagnostic and therapeutic processes with full range of image post-processing methods 

Nuclear medicine

  • Scintigraphic examinations of heart, bones, kidneys and thyroid
