Abdominal imaging is at the heart of the expertise of the IHU Strasbourg's Medical Imaging Centre, particularly with regard to the multidisciplinary management of liver and pancreatic pathologies making possible a "one-day diagnosis", thanks to our innovative care pathways.
Imaging is central to the management of liver, spleen and pancreas diseases, enabling the detection and diagnosis of the disease and, if necessary, regular and close monitoring over the long term. For this purpose, abdominal/pelvic CT and hepatic/pancreatic/bili- MRI are very complementary.
This “one-day diagnosis” process has been set up by the University Hospital Institute of Strasbourg as part of our innovative care pathways. Active collaboration between your referring physician or surgeon and the radiologist, can facilitate scheduling your CT +/- MRI imaging exam in parallel with your initial consultation appointment..
