The Department of Radiology at the University Clinic of Bonn, Germany carries out approximately 80 liver MRI exams per month. These include examinations of oncology patients for the optimization of intervention and follow-up planning, the scanning of transplant and surgery patients, and imaging outpatients referred by the department of hepatology.
The Radiology Department’s philosophy is to strive for liver imaging that is “right first time” and provides sufficient and high quality information for confident diagnosis.To do this, the department makes use of Philips Ingenia MRI systems.
Senior radiologist Dr Kukuk talks about the systems with which the department is equipped and how they are used in practice.
