The Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology is one of the largest neuroradiological departments in Germany. It covers the whole spectrum of neuroradiological diagnostics and endovascular interventions.
We closely cooperate with the departments of neurosurgery, neurology, neuropaediatrics, orthopaedics and nuclear medicine as well as with the department of radiotherapy, the OncoRay and the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden Rossendorf. The institute is strongly involved in the oncological infrastructure of the UKD in particular in UCC and the certified Center for Neurooncology.
The facility provides the most advanced imaging technics including ASL, quantitative MRI and MR spectroscopy. It has access to three multislice and one dual-source-CT scanners, three 3T MRI scanners, one 1.5T-MRI scanner, and a PET-MRI.
Our main fields of research include neurooncologic imaging with special focus on low-grade astrocytoma and secondary glioblastoma, including 2-hydroxyglutarat-MR-spectroscopy. Besides neurooncologic issues, our research focuses on MRI biomarkers of small vessel diseases and neurodegenerative diseases, advanced white matter imaging techniques including myelin-sensitive methods and on imaging and interventional therapy of acute ischemic stroke.
