In oncology (cancer science), the part of diagnostics that is helpful in determining the degree of spread of a malignant tumor is called staging. It is also the basis for deciding which therapy is ideal for the patient.


You will need: Assignment (detailed brief), previous images/findings, creatinine level (can also be taken and checked at our clinic); completed questionnaire.

The region is cleared of disturbing clothing, and the examination is performed in the examination room lying on an examination table. You will mostly receive iodine-containing contrast medium.

Sometimes the use of contrast medium (iodine) is required for differentiation between individual structures and between healthy and diseased tissue. Adverse side effects are (extremely) rare.

These examinations are provided as private services. This means that they will not be billed directly to the health insurance company, but will be billed directly to you in the form of a fee invoice.
