Radiology

The radiology team led by Prof. Christian W. A. Pfirrmann and PD Dr. Reto Sutter carries out diagnostic imaging of the musculoskeletal system using a whole range of state-of-the-art X-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, and MRI equipment. The team focusses entirely on the musculoskeletal system, making it uniquely experienced in this field in Switzerland. The radiology services are directly available for all our patients and for referrals from other doctors and hospitals.
