Doctors of the practice radiology Baden-Baden receive quality certificate of the federation of German radiologists (BDR) for the proven high technical picture quality for the picture of the Prostata (multiparametric MRT Prostatografie, mpMR-Prostata after PI-RADS).
Imaging of the prostate by MRI is a focus of practice. In order to convey the possibilities and developments of this technique to affected patients, but also to an interested group of people, Prof. Plathow regularly reports on this important topic. At the end of 2018 another lecture will take place.
The Diploma of the European Society of Scaletal Radiology (ESSR) became a shareholder of Radiologie Baden-Baden, Prof. Dr. med. Christian Plathow, in a festive event during this year’s ESSR in Amsterdam. The diploma confirms the many years of activity and advanced training in the field of Musculoskeletal Radiology – a focus of practice for many years. Thus, the practice for many years focus practice of the German Roentgen Society (DRG) for Musculoskeletal Diseases.
With the installation of a new modern double-head camera, the Radiologie Baden-Baden practice at Stadtklinik can now offer state-of-the-art nuclear medicine imaging. Emphasis will continue to be on cardiac imaging (myocardial scintigraphy), thyroid diagnostics, bone scintigraphy (skeletal scintigraphy) as well as special examinations such as the depiction of sentinel lymph nodes (e.g. to be in breast cancer. The camera is placed in the modernized, bright premises in the city hospital location.
For many years, cardiac imaging with cardiac CT (coronary CT) with the currently lowest-radiation CT in the region (SIEENS Edge, 128-Zeiler), myocardial scintigraphy and cardiac MRI has been a focus of Radiologie Baden-Baden practice. Partners of the practice speak regularly about the topic and have accordingly certified qualifications with national and international societies (among other things level III (trainer status) with the SCMR (Society of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance)). The highest quality in this complex area of imaging can only be guaranteed if a corresponding amount of examinations are carried out and the subject is regularly dealt with. With over 1500 cardio-MRI examinations in cooperation with an experienced local cardiologist this is given. Highest quality and a close cooperation with a cardiologist – officially admitted to the medical association and thus a unique feature of the practice also in this area – also guarantee cardiac diagnostics at the highest level.
The practice radiology Baden-Baden has been re-accredited as an academic teaching practice for Radiology of the University Hospital of Heidelberg. The practice continues to occupy an exceptional position in the region – it is the only academic teaching practice for radiology in the whole of Baden-Württemberg. Highest quality at university level and in close contact with one of the world’s leading universities were again confirmed.
With the relocation of the Radiology Baden-Baden practice, the examination rooms include modern, bright wall and ceiling illumination (lighting and simulations) to make the time spent in the exam rooms much more pleasant. Special sky simulations—especially for patients with claustrophobia—can make the visit much easier.
Quality, organization, and service are important to patients and to the optimal administration of the practice. The practice was successfully recertified to KTQ (Kooperation für Transparenz und Qualität im Gesundheitswesen, a quality assessment organization). We would like to thank our practice manager and the entire team.
