Imaging Diagnostics

Implementation of radiological and sonographical examinations.

X-Ray

The conventional x-ray diagnostics is still the most popular method. It does not create slice images but projections in which the screened structures overlap.

Skeletal Age Determination

We carry out a computer-aided comparison with a large normal control group (Tanner-Whitehouse method; TW3) using an X-ray of the left hand to determine the age of a skeleton and the expected final body length.

MRT (MRI) Scan

The magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) is a diagnostical procedure in which by means of magnetic fields, slice images of a specific region of body are produced. Since ionizing radiation (such as x-rays) are not applied, the patient is not exposed to any radiation doses.
