Radiology and MRI
Radiology is a specialist department equipped with state-of-the-art, low-dose X-ray systems. Our team produces digital X-ray images which are stored and archived digitally in our system (PACS: Picture Archiving and Communication System). A special feature of radiology at the Schulthess Klinik is the production of digital complete leg and spine images (EOS) in 2D (animated film) and 3D technology.
The scope of services offered by the Medizinisch Radiologisches Institut (MRI) includes the use of two state-of-the-art MR devices (1.5 Tesla and 3 Tesla) with a patient-friendly 70 cm bore, a 128-slice CT scanner, and a flat-panel detector radiography device of the latest generation. The radiology team specialises in imaging for orthopaedics, sports medicine, and rheumatology, and meets every examination request for magnetic resonance imaging of the musculoskeletal system and the spine.
Radiology at the Schulthess Klinik
Schulthess Klinik is currently the only hospital in Switzerland to have installed the latest generation of digital radiography with a detector built into the floor. The new detector technology has led to a significant reduction in dose application and a high-resolution image quality for the production of X-ray images.
Radiology performs more than 57,000 X-rays a year, which play a vital role in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases. The Radiology team consists of qualified specialists who have completed many years of training in various diagnostic fields such as radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine.
The Medical Radiological Institute, MRI, is distinguished by its highly qualified doctors and specialist staff as well as its high level of medical expertise, particularly in the musculoskeletal field and in the diagnosis of epilepsy and dementia.
Thanks to its connection to the Schulthess Klinik, there is a lively professional exchange with the specialists on site and, as a patient, you benefit from the hospital's modern infrastructure. We look forward to welcoming you to the MRI Schulthess Klinik in a professional and friendly manner.
