Interventional radiologist, radiologist, associate professor

I was born in Budapest in 1975. My mother was a special needs teacher and my father was a radiographer. I am married, my wife Dóra Mátyus is an ophthalmologist, my children are Aliz, Linda and András.


I was graduated from the Semmelweis University in 2003, then I specialized in radiology in 2008. I got my PhD in 2012, and two years later I received the title of “Qualified Doctor of Interventional Radiology”.
I have been working at the Department of Transplantation and Surgery at Semmelweis University since 2005. My daily work is to prepare the liver and kidney transplants, radiological and diagnostical, performing intraoperative ultrasound examinations, diagnosing postoperative diseases. Beyound diagnostic CT, ultrasound and X-ray examinations, I mainly deal with interventional radiology work. This includes histological sampling, interventions performed trough urinary, biliary, and vascular system, radiofrequency and microwave tumor destruction and the assessment of their feasibility.

I have been participating as a practice leader and lecturer in Hungarian, German and English undergraduate radiology education for more than 10 years.
I regularly give lectures of the interventional radiology and the planning of laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, and participate regularly on Hungarian and foreign congresses in this topic.

Currently my main field of activity is related to interventional radiology, my interest is to research the application possibilities of thermoablation techniques (radio frequency and microwave tumor destruction, – RFA, MWT).
I performed first in Hungary a thyroid nodule RFA, as well as hepatic hemangioma and renal angiomyolipoma MWT.
