Department of Nuclear Medicine

A wide range of diagnostic procedures and treatments using radionuclides

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the Sana Klinikum Offenbach offers a wide range of diagnostic procedures and treatments using radionuclides on an outpatient basis.

In the field of imaging and functional diagnostics we use not only routine examination procedures in nuclear medicine, including SPECT, but also procedures that cannot be carried out by practice-based doctors owing to the complex technical requirements and/or special radiation protection regulations.

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at the Sana Klinikum Offenbach is equipped with a double-head ECT whole-body gamma camera (used mostly for skeletal and cardiac studies), a planar wide-field gamma camera (used mostly for renal studies, as well as for  lymphoscintigraphy) and a special thyroid camera with a measuring station for determining iodine metabolism.

The Department‘s in vitro laboratory is able to measure the entire range of thyroid hormone parameters and a large number of antibodies and tumor markers, which are extremely important for diagnosing and monitoring autoimmune and malignant disorders.

The director of the Radiology/Nuclear Medicine Department the Sana Klinikum Offenbach, which is an academic teaching hospital, is authorized to provide advanced training for consultants and is actively involved in teaching of medical students, as well as the radiology/nuclear medicine technology students.

The Department is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 and in 2008 it conducted more than 4,500 examinations of all organ systems. In addition, the Department is certified as a cooperation partner of the Breast Center in accordance with ISO 9001:2000; it was also certified by the German Onkozert institute in November 2008.
