Olof Flodmark and Staffan Holmin´s research group
The Department of Neuroradiology is a attached to Karolinska University Hospital. Activity at the clinic consists of diagnostic investigations but also of treatments for diseases and injuries of the central nervous system, brain and spinal cord and surrounding bones, skull and back.
In modern neuroradiology is used almost exclusively CT scan and MRI equipment to diagnose. A more traditional X-ray technology, but of a very advanced type (angiography) is used for diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the brain and spinal cord. The angiographic examinations and treatments, and a small part of conventional radiography of the skull and spine, occurs at the neuroradiological department.
Department of Neuroradiology works in close collaboration with the Karolinska Institute where most of the active research and development takes place.
Studies have been conducted at other hospitals in the county but also further away, both within and outside Sweden.
Radiographs are now being handled digitally which is why the images can be quickly and easily sent to the radiology departments at Karolinska University Hospital or to other hospitals in Sweden. Referral and statement processing is also done digitally.
At the clinic we conduct active and prominent research in survey methods but particularly in diseases that can be detected or treated by neuro-imaging techniques.
At the neuroradiological department there are two cameras for computed tomography and five magnetic cameras. Two laboratories for cerebral angiographic examinations and treatments are also available here. Close to the department there is a positron camera - PET - operated jointly with the neurophysiological and the psychiatric clinic. It is mainly used for research.
- Development of neuroradiological methods to reveal and treat neurological diseases
- Diagnosis and treatment of vascular diseases in the brain and spinal cord
