Mult­is­pir­al – com­puter tomo­graphy (CT)

Computer tomography uses x-rays to produce high resolution sectional images of the body. The tube rotates around the patient during the examination. As part of the image reconstruction process, high-resolution sectional images can be produced in any spatial direction. In our centre, 2 state-of-the-art Siemens Somatom MRI devices, with 64 and 16 lines are available.

Further developments in the field of computer tomography provide new possibilities for more gentle diagnostic investigations, with reduced radiation. Both of our computer tomography devices are equipped with the latest dosage reduction technology (IRIS and SAFIRE).

In comparison with standard devices, dosage reductions of up to 50% can be achieved in several fields of application, while the usual high image quality is maintained. This is especially advantageous for younger patients, as well as patients who require frequent CT scans, e.g. as part of their after-care.


Key and typ­ic­al uses of com­puter tomo­graphy are:

Head, facial skull, jaw

  • Paranasal sinus disorders
  • Bleeding in the skull or brain
  • Jaw and dental disorders (dental CT)

Thorax

  • Pulmonary disorders
  • Lung tumours and cancer
  • Diseases of the pleura and chest wall

Abdomen and pelvis

  • Disorders of the liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and adrenal glands
  • Lymphoma in the abdomen
  • Accumulation of fluid in the abdomen
  • Vascular dilation
  • Inflammation in the abdomen

Spine

  • Intervertebral disc protrusions on the lumbar spine or cervical spine
  • Vertebral fractures
  • Examination for osteolysis
  • 3D representations
  • Vascular examination (CT angiography)

Other uses can be found on our MRI and CT indications list.

The results of the examination will be discussed with you once the images have been prepared. You will also receive the images at the same time. Written findings are sent to your referring doctor by fax – usually on the same day.

In the examination preparation section, you will find information on how to prepare, as well as information sheets.
