Department of Radiotherapy

Integrated into Europe’s largest radiology center, the team at the Department of Radiotherapy at Campus Virchow-Klinikum headed by Deputy Director Prof. Dr. Bernhard Gebauer (Director: Prof. Dr. Bernd Hamm) offers a comprehensive and excellent range of radiological interventions with a focus on the following therapies:

CT-guided brachytherapy

Using a minimally invasive technique high-dose radiation is applied directly onto the tumor. Surrounding tissue and adjoining organs receive only very minor doses. This therapy is well suited for lung and liver carcinoma.

Radio-embolization (SIRT)

Primary and secondary liver tumors that do not respond to chemotherapy undergo radio-embolization (also called Selective Internal Radiation Therapy – SIRT). Tiny radiated particles are injected and for several days release a certain radiation dose directly on the tumor causing tumor cell death.

Thermoablation of osteoid osteoma

Today, image-guided thermoablation has basically replaced interventional procedures to treat benign bone tumors, so-called osteoid osteoma. Either radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or laser ablation is used, since 2008 with CT or MRI guidance.

Uterine fibroid embolization

Utrine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment for uterine fibroids. Small particles are injected into the uterine arteries to block the blood supply and ultimately starve the fibroids.

The team of CharitéCenter 6 – Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology and Nuclear Medicine consists of more than 100 physicians who offer the complete range of state-of-the-art radiology and nuclear medicine techniques and technologies at the highest level. Research activities focus on clinical radiological and contrast media studies, technological innovations in MT and MRI, minimally invasive diagnostics and therapy and molecular imaging on particle level. The research results are regularly published in renowned national and international medical journals.
