In practical terms, X-rays shine through the human body in much the same way that sunlight shines through paper or flower petals. The different tissues of the human body have different shadowing effects on the X-rays used, so they also appear in different shades of gray, black and white (shadowing or brightening) on the X-ray image.

You will need: Referral (with a detailed question), previous images/reports.

These examinations are provided by the private practice of PD Dr. Sailer. This means that the medical services rendered (X-ray, ultrasound) will not be directly billed to the health insurance company but will be invoiced to you in the form of an honorarium.
