Positron emission tomography
A positron emission tomography or PET scan is a nuclear-medical examination method by which metabolic processes within the body or properties of tumours can be visualised. The spread of a disease can be precisely recorded and therapies can be optimally planned with the combination of a PET and CT scan.
About the appointment
Overview of all examinations
Clarity in diagnostics
Multimodality molecular imaging
For multimodality molecular imaging (MMI), a PET-CT and an additional MRI can detect the status of a disease and clarify unclear findings.
Seeing what goes on in the brain: Plaque deposits in the brain can be visualised with a PET-CT and early signs of dementia can be detected.
A PET-CT can provide highly precise insights into the heart muscle and thereby offer support for therapy decisions.
Costs & reimbursement
PET-CTs are currently not listed within the benefits catalogue of statutory health insurers and therefore only covered through private health insurance.
Our fee notes can be submitted in any case to all private health insurers that cover outpatient services.
Various tracers are used depending on the condition. We will gladly inform you about the costs during a personal consultation.
We ask you to, at the latest, cancel your appointment at noon on the day before the examination since tracers are specifically prepared for each examination.
A cancellation fee is charged in case of late appointment cancellation or if the examination cannot be performed.//
