Both MRI and CT scan are procedures that generate sectional images of the inside of the body. While computed tomography (CT) makes this possible using X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) works with a strong magnetic field and high-frequency radio waves.
We need precise information about which regions of your body to examine. When making an appointment, please let us know if medical records have already been made of you in another practice or clinic. We need this for your further investigation.
According to the current state of scientific knowledge, it is not known that an MRI scan can lead to permanent damage to the unborn child or to premature birth. However, for safety reasons, there is usually no MRI scan during the first three months of pregnancy. Even in the subsequent months of pregnancy, MRI examinations are only performed in medically urgent cases and after the doctor has carefully weighed up the indications.
If you are pregnant and an MRI scan is planned, please contact us. We are happy to help.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in children is usually safe medically. However, your child should be able to lie still for 15-20 minutes without sedation. Small children and infants can usually only be examined under short anesthesia, as they cannot lie still sufficiently for the high-quality images. As we unfortunately cannot offer short anesthesia in our practice for safety reasons, the examination of toddlers and infants takes place in the children's clinic.
As a rule, you will receive your examination images shortly after your MRI or CT examination. The written report will be sent by post to your referring doctor, where you can have a copy made if you wish.
If you would like a conversation with the radiologist to discuss the findings, please contact us. We are at your disposal.
Accompanying persons are only admitted to the practice if they are absolutely necessary for the treatment, i.e. when examining children; People who need a translation or are so in need of help that an accompanying person is required.
