Expert medical care at hospitals and rehabilitation clinics
The Institute for Radiology and Interventional Therapy offers a wide range of diagnostics and therapies meeting the highest quality standards. Headed up by Senior Consultant Professor Joachim Wagner, it is part of the Vivantes Hospital in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. A combination of the latest medical technology and extensive medical experience is particularly important in a radiology department – Professor Wagner and his team have this technology, possess a wealth of experience and have achieved an outstanding level of success.
The Institute for Radiology and Interventional Therapy offers all of the basic radiological examinations, e.g. X-ray, ultrasound, Doppler sonography, CT and MRI – both with and without a contrast medium. Imaging enables Professor Wagner and his team to see every point of the human body and to look for irregularities. Radiologists aim to minimise the impact on the body in all diagnostic procedures. During X-rays and CT scans, exposure to the rays that project the images is kept as low as possible. Ultrasound examinations, in which the images are produced by completely harmless ultrasound waves, are especially suitable for pregnant women and children. Doppler, or duplex, sonography is a special ultrasound scan that measures the speed at which blood is flowing through the veins and arteries, providing information about blocked or narrowed blood vessels – in other words whether there are any circulatory disorders. The Institute for Radiology and Interventional Therapy also uses blood vessel imaging known as angiography. It is used to identify not only circulatory disorders but also changes to blood vessels, e.g. protrusions in the artery wall, known as aneurysms. An ultra-modern 64-slice CT is used to obtain cross-sectional images of every part of the body. In cardiac CTs, this technology is used to view any blocked coronary arteries and veins, and to identify life-threatening situations. Other procedures using ultra-modern-slice CT are the CT colonography (scan of the intestine), CT enteroclysis (scan of the small intestine), CT-controlled biopsy (removal of tissue for analysis) and the establishment of special access to the body, e.g. for chemotherapy (port) and for pain therapy.
Professor Wagner and his team offer all of the major interventional therapies that are based on modern radiology. Radiological interventions can be vascular (in a blood vessel) or non-vascular. There are many kinds of vascular interventions, e.g. stent implantation, thrombolysis (dissolving of clots in blood vessels) and implantation of chemotherapy and radioactive material for destroying, in particular, inoperable tumours such as tumours and metastases in the liver or bile ducts. In the abdominal area, stents (wafer-thin metal tubes in the form of a mesh) are also implanted, for example, in the oesophagus (to enable food to be swallowed more easily), stomach, intestine and bile ducts (as drainage) and feeding tubes may be inserted.
The Institute for Radiology and Interventional Therapy, led by Professor Wagner, boasts the most important elements required of a 21st century hospital: the latest medical technology, quality standards of the highest level, doctors with many years of experience, a broad range of specific diagnostics and treatments and a focus on international patient groups.

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.자세한 내용 »
Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.html자세한 내용 »

Christmas Markets in Cologne
Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.자세한 내용 »
Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.자세한 내용 »
Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto
A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.자세한 내용 »
Due to open in 2017, the Elbphilarmonie is a ~very~ controversial project among Hamburg's taxpayers. But its sheer originality and generous public spaces will definitely put Hamburg on the map of people who've never thought of visiting this vibrant town. The building will contain three concert halls, two hotels, apartments, shops and a public square between the base of the bulding (a former wharehouse) and the new, Gaudí-esque top. You can count on Hamburg becoming as popular with foreign travelers as it is among German visitors.자세한 내용 »
