About us

Medicine has made vast progress in the last few years, and research and progress are still going strong. Notably, this also applies to the technically highly developed field of radiology. The equipment at hand allows for rapid and better diagnostics on one hand and gentle and less troublesome examinations on the other. Today, different examination procedures according to the affected organ or kind of disease are possible which require experience and specialized knowledge. Therefore, patient care demands a specialized team of differently trained personnel such as experts in radiology, specialists in medical technical radiology, qualified nurses and physicians.
