2) Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology

The Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology operates the MR Center South at the USZ. The Department of Neuroradiology uses the center's magnetic resonance tomographs to examine intensive-care patients and the emergency center's computer tomograph. We also use some of the machines for research.

3) Wagi Center

The Clinic of Nuclear Medicine operates a site with state-of-the-art PET equipment in Schlieren. The results of the PET examinations are combined with imaging techniques such as CT and MRI, enabling specialists to precisely localize biochemical processes in the body. The Department of Neuroradiology uses the site's MRI equipment for examinations.
