Services

Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of radiology and deals specifically with diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the nervous system. 

The Charité Universitätsmedizin is equipped with all currently available modern examination and treatment methods to represent anatomical structures, but also functions such as blood flow, metabolic processes, movement of the cerebrospinal fluid, and even the history of the fiber webs in the brain and spinal cord.

Diagnostic, treatment and interdisciplinary cooperation

Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of radiology and deals specifically with diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the nervous system.
The Charité Universitätsmedizin is equipped with all currently available modern examination and treatment methods to represent anatomical structures, but also functions such as blood flow, metabolic processes, movement of the cerebrospinal fluid, and even the history of the fiber webs in the brain and spinal cord.

The Neuroradiology Section is working closely with the Departments of neurology, neurosurgery, oral and mouth and jaw surgery as well as ear, nose and throat medicine.

Treatment of medical conditions in these disciplines will be discussed in regular conferences.

A 24 hours neurological emergency call desk is already established for emergencies outside of normal working hours, to discuss urgent diagnosis and treatment matters.

Besides the pure diagnostic neuroradiology, the Charité – Universitätsmedizin also offers innovative, image-guided treatments.
