Radiology utilises several procedures to create a picture of the organs in our body, such as X-rays, computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, but also ultrasound, mammography, angiography, interventional radiology and various different special examinations. Neuroradiology includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of and changes to the central nervous system, i.e. the brain and spinal cord, including its sheath and adjacent structures.
Klinik Im Park's Radiology and Neuroradiology Centre in Zurich offers the entire range of cutting-edge diagnostic radiology and neuroradiology as well as all invasive radiological procedures at two locations. Our team of doctors is qualified in general radiology and/or neuroradiology with numerous specialisations.
The discipline of neuroradiology covers the diagnosis and therapy of ailments and changes in the central nervous system (CNS), meaning the brain and spinal cord together with their envelope and peripheral structures.
Neuroradiology supplements the neighbouring disciplines of neurosurgery, neurology, psychiatry, orthopaedics and internal medicine with radiological examination techniques, thus providing assistance and alternatives for them in terms of both diagnostics and therapies. Close diagnostic correlations also link neuroradiology with the fields of ear, nose and throat medicine, maxillofacial (jaw) surgery and ophthalmology (eyes).
Radiology uses non-invasive methods to obtain images of our bodies' organs. The best-known example of this would be photographs created by means of X-rays.
The radiologist is not only an expert in X-ray imaging, but in newer forms of examination techniques as well, including ultrasound, computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The appropriate forms of examination are frequently used to determine the exact location and size of an injury, tumour, or source of bleeding. Disorders of the brain, spinal cord or inner organs are often examined using these techniques. The radiologist is then responsible for interpreting the results of the tests.
Some of these methods can be combined with the use of certain 'radiopaque' drugs that display the organs more clearly. The radiologist is able to determine which cases would benefit most from these substances, how they will work and what problems might arise through their use.
