Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology


  • Prof. Dr. med. Olav Jansen

The Department of Radiology and Neuroradiology developed from the former Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Neuroradiology. The latest imaging equipment and methods are available at the Department, including ionising radiation, nuclear resonance and ultrasound, and all types of imaging controlled interventions are performed here.

The main areas of research are interventional radiology, or image controlled invasive diagnostic and intervention measures, cardiovascular diagnostics using DSA, US, CT and MRT, 3 and 4D procedures in CT and MRT and morphological and functional diagnostics of the lung (volumetry, perfusion, ventilation). Apart from that, the scientists are involved in the quantification of image information (volumetry), image processing (e.g bone structure analysis as part of research into osteoporosis, molecular imaging in the MOIN CC) and different aspects of experimental radiology (e.g. thorax phantom, intimal hyperplasia, tumour volumetry, construction of an ultrasound device, development of a puncture system, etc.).

The Department has its own working group of research scientists. Staff at the Department are involved in intensive national and international collaborations.
