About the Department of Neuroradiology

At the Department of Neuroradiology, we use imaging techniques to examine the head, neck, spine and nervous system. We further treat diseases of these body parts with minimally invasive methods. In addition, the clinic holds specialized consultation hours for neurovascular problems, offers personal consultations, and provides expert opinions on neuroradiological cases.
