Sonography has many advantages: it does not negatively impact the patient’s health, does not involve radiation, and is pain-free. There are no risks associated with ultrasound.
Our clinic is an internationally renowned institution in the field of image-guided diagnostics and minimally invasive treatment. We examine and treat diseases of the brain, the spinal cord, the peripheral nervous system and their associated organs (eyes, auditory, vestibular, etc.), as well as adjacent structures of the head, neck and spine.
At the Department of Neuroradiology, we use the latest methods, equipment and imaging techniques. Additionally, we convene with experts in neurosurgery and neurology to develop an individual therapy concept for each case.
