The Division of Paediatric Radiology is one of four European centers of excellence in this field.

Its area of responsibility comprises imaging for pregnant women, premature infants, newborns, children and adolescents under the age of 19 as well as adults with diseases originating in childhood (e.g., congenital heart defects, cystic fibrosis).

Specially developed, child-friendly examination protocols permit high-precision diagnosis. This also involves a suitable, child-friendly environment with bright and cheerful waiting rooms, play zones, etc.

Thanks to our research into non-invasive imaging, new examination modes and radiation protection as well as our numerous industrial collaborations, we are able to integrate the latest findings and results into our daily routine. Students are taught the ins and outs of pediatric radiology, as are physicians from around the world. The division also organizes national and international congresses, workshops and a large number of summer and winter schools.

The division's expertise is illustrated by the publication of textbooks and a large number of book chapters in a variety of renowned specialist books worldwide as well as numerous national and international awards.

The uniqueness and the added value of our division are the result of the symbiosis between patient care, research and education. The division is jointly operated by the Medical University of Graz and the Styrian Hospital Association (KAGes). This interdisciplinary cooperation between both providers at the University Hospital Graz site is also reflected on our website. More information on patient care can be found at the University Hospital Graz website.
