Conventional X-ray diagnostics

We will be happy to inform you about conventional X-ray examinations.

In a conventional X-ray examination, a specific region of the body is made visible using X-rays. The rays - electromagnetic waves - penetrate the inside of the body for a brief moment (a few milliseconds). Depending on the density of the irradiated tissue, more or fewer waves are stopped, resulting in different images.

The X-ray examination is ideal for quickly and easily assessing bones and joints as well as individual organs in the chest and abdomen (such as the lungs, heart and intestines). For example, it can be used to clarify whether a bone fracture or pneumonia is present. The examination is painless. The amount of radiation used is as low as possible in order to obtain high-quality and meaningful examination results. We comply with the legal guidelines.

The entire examination takes about 10-20 minutes, with the actual recording taking place in milliseconds.

No special preparations are necessary for most X-ray examinations. You can take your medication as usual. Our specialist staff will explain the procedure and the optimum position during the examination. The area of the body to be examined should be unclothed. You should not move during the scan. X-ray images are often taken from two angles or in different positions in order to increase the informative value of the examination.

The examination has no effect on your daily routine and you should not expect any side effects.

If you have any questions before or during the examination, simply contact our specialist staff.
