Neuroradiologie, vaskuläre und interventionelle Radiologie

We take care of our patients' needs in the field of imaging diagnostics and in the special field of interventional radiology. State-of-the-art CT (256-slice and 128-slice), MRI (1.5T and 3T) and ultrasound scanners are available. A high-power 3T MRI scanner (PRISMA) is available for research and special issues in patient care. The interventional area operates three angiography units, one of which is set up as a biplane angiographic unit for neurointerventions. In addition, hybrid interventions are performed with surgical colleagues in two hybrid operating rooms at the Department of Surgery.

Neurodiagnostics investigates and treats problems that affect the central nervous system including the spinal cord, cranial nerves and skull base and carries out diagnostics and interventions in the field of neurovascular disease (cerebral aneurysm, AV malformation, stenosis). The division is the only place in Styria that performs mechanical thrombectomy for acute stroke around the clock, 365 days a year. Even outside of standard working hours, the division has a special interventional radiology team that is ready to provide rapid treatment in the event of bleeding or vascular injury.

In interventional radiology, drainage procedures for the liver and kidney are performed, as are endovascular interventions on the entire vascular system (artificial aorta, treatment of peripheral artery disease, interventional tumor therapy). CT image-guided minimally invasive treatments of tumors (lungs, liver, kidney, bones) and CT image-guided pain therapy are also offered.

Our staff are responsible for organizing regular clinical meetings and participating in the interdisciplinary tumor board.

The uniqueness and the added value of our division are the result of the symbiosis between patient care, research and education. The division is jointly operated by the Medical University of Graz and the Styrian Hospital Association (KAGes). This interdisciplinary cooperation between both providers at the University Hospital Graz site is also reflected on our website. More information on patient care can be found at the University Hospital Graz website.
