Diagnosis at the DTZ
Pain is invisible to the human eye. To discover the causes behind it, at the DTZ we use multiple imaging methods to help the doctor see inside the body.
At the DTZ there are two kinds of imaging procedure: On the one hand, conventional diagnostic methods such as CT, MRT (radiology) or scintigraphy (nuclear medicine) can depict ‘classic’ diseases reliably. On the other hand, specific disorders can be diagnosed accurately using innovative combined procedures, such as PET/CT, PET/MR, SPECT/CT and SPECT/MR.
For the patient, this means that the underlying illness behind their symptoms of whatever kind – from Parkinson’s disease to athlete’s foot – can be diagnosed accurately, and a subsequent course of further treatment planned at the diagnostic and treatment centre in Berlin-Friedrichshain.
