Digital X-ray

In 1901 Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for the discovery of x-rays.

A diagnostic x-ray uses the property of the various tissues in the body, which x-rays show differently.

In particular, it allows structures with high density (bone) and low density (lungs) to be shown.

Over the years the improvement of technology and in particular the use of digital methods has been worked on constantly to improve image quality and reduce radiation exposure for patients.

In our practice we use the very latest digital systems; since November 2010 we have offered a new picture cassette system, which reduces exposure to radiation by up to 30%.
X-rays should still be on the order of your referring physician and in consultation with our radiologist on an individual basis.
(As much as necessary, as little as possible)

Roentgen Hand Roentgen Lunge We can offer you the following investigations: (In case of doubt please consult)

  • Lungs/ heart images (Thorax)
  • Bone imaging (Skeleton)
  • Lateral cephalogram for the planning of orthodontics.
  • Representation of child's hand bones to determine bone age
  • Abdominal images for locating, for example, pain pumps or for example, intestinal blockage (Abdomen overview)
  • Kidney x-ray (i.v. Urography), please determine creatinine and TSH

It is not normally necessary to make an appointment or prepare for this examination; because of the contrast and duration of the examination, the x-ray examination of the kidneys (up to 45 min) should if possible not be undertaken with a full stomach and should be carried out in the morning.
