Thoracic imaging

We offer this service at the following locations:

Thoracic imaging specialises in diseases of the organs of the chest cavity, in particular the lungs, the large intrathoracic vessels and the pleura. In addition to conventional (digital) X-ray diagnostics, we also offer high-resolution computer tomography (CT) and, in selected cases, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
