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.
Clinic of Radiology
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.
Clinic of Nuclear Medicine
4) Wollishofen Center
The university hospital's diagnostic imaging center in Wollishofen is run by the Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology. The Department of Neuroradiology and the Clinic of Nuclear Medicine support the processes at the Wollishofen site. We use the center's MRI and CT equipment (GE Healthcare) to examine and treat patients.
5) Airport Center
Starting in 2020, the USZ will offer outpatient medical services directly at the airport. The Department of Neuroradiology will use the imaging equipment (MRI, CT) at the center for examinations and treatments.
