The Department of Radiology is a cross-disciplinary clinical department with no beds. The Department receives inpatients as well as outpatients.

Radiology covers eight specialist areas Neuroradiology, thoracic radiology, cardiovascular and interventional radiology, paediatric radiology, abdominal and uroradiology, musculoskeletal radiology, oncology radiology and mammary radiology. In addition to this, the cross-disciplinary modalities; ultrasound, MRI and CT.

The Department carries out basic examinations as well as highly specialised examinations and interventional treatment. Moreover, training, research and development are carried out at the Department.

Diagnostic examinations are performed using conventional radiology, CT, MRI and ultrasound in all organ systems as well as interventional examinations and treatments such as biopsies, catheters, nephrostomies, biliary drainages. In addition, the Department performs vascular interventions such as balloon angioplasty and stents, embolisation of tumours and haemorrhages, regional chemotherapy in liver tumours, cerebral and peripheral thrombolytic treatment, endoprostheses, musculoskeletal examinations with dual energy and dose-saving techniques, MRI mammographies and MRI spectroscopies as well as ultrasound fusion.

The Department receives patients from other hospitals (regional function) and general practitioners.

The staff comprises about 225 employees, including physicians, radiographers, secretaries and technical staff. The Department has five multislice CT scanners, four MRI scanners (0.5-3 tesla), three interventional radiology rooms and four ultrasound rooms.

The Department is located in the basement, on the ground floor and on the first floor of building 1, entrance 27, and with a satellite function in the Department of Acute Medicine, the orthopaedic surgery outpatient department, and the Department of Oncology.
