Diagnostics at Charité Berlin

Any successful therapy requires first-rate diagnostics. With its experienced team and broad range of laboratory and imaging diagnostics equipment Charité is excellently positioned to provide state-of-the- art diagnostic services.

Radiology and Nuclear Medicine

The radiology department – CharitéCenter 6 – is one of the largest radiological centers in Europe.

CharitéCenter 6 encompasses all radiological departments, including neuroradiology, pediatric radiology and the Clinic of Nuclear Medicine and Medical Physics and offers the complete range of imaging procedures with state-of-the-art technology: 14 computed tomography (CT) scanners, 12 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, several ultrasound systems ensure excellent care. A positron emission computed tomography (PET-CT) scanner and the single photon emission CT (SPECT-CT) scanner are modern hybrid systems that are being used jointly with the nuclear medicine team.

In addition to “pure” diagnostics the so-called interventional radiology, that is minimally invasive procedures under imaging guidance, plays an increasingly important role. Charité offers all minimally invasive vascular interventions, such as reopening of vessels, and non-vascular interventions such as tumor ablation guided by imaging systems. For modern and safe interventional radiology the Center operates nine angiography systems, one open MRI system and ten beds.

Laboratory diagnostics

With 400 staff and 20 million analyses every year “Labor Berlin”, an association of Charité and Vivantes labs, is the largest hospital lab in Europe.

At twelve sites labs procedures are performed in the following areas:

  • Microbiology
  • Virology
  • Human genetics / molecular genetics
  • Autoimmune diagnostics
  • Hematology / oncology
  • Immunology


The close cooperation of all laboratory medicine disciplines with the Charité institutes and facilities opens entirely new approaches to patient care and the development of medical diagnostics.

Labor Berlin draws on the expertise of the following institutes:

Institute of Medical Immunology

The Opens external link in current windowinstitute bridges the gap between basic research and clinical research and focuses on the development of new diagnostic and therapy concepts for immune diseases by gaining a better understanding of the pathogenesis.

Institute of Medical Genetics and Human Genetics

Medical genetics goes beyond standards diagnostic procedures by using the increasing number of molecular diagnostic methods that allow the detection of ever more congenital diseases. Today, the institute’s diagnostic repertoire includes molecular genetics, array CGH, cytogenetics, molecular cytogenetics and tumor cytogenetics.
