The Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Hospital Frankfurt/ Main offers referring physicians and patients a complete spectrum of radiological diagnosis which stretches from conventional x-ray including mammography, modern cross sectional imaging like sonography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to interventional treatments.
Our institute offers the whole spectrum of diagnostic and interventional radiology of world-class standard. Our department is one of the leading centers with experience in MR-guided laser-induced interstitial thermotherapy (LITT) for the treatment of liver and lung tumors.
