Radiology

What is radiology?

Waiting lists

Radiology at DC Klinieken

DC Klinieken offers a variety of tests at its radiology department. You can come to us for the following tests:

 

  • X-rays. We image hard parts of the body (such as bones), taking pictures with X-rays.
  • Mammography. In mammography, X-rays are used to make targeted images of the breast. These images can show abnormalities.
  • Bone density tests. We also use X-rays to measure bone density, which is the amount of calcium that is present in the bones.
  • Ultrasound. Ultrasound is used to display the shape, location and structure of tissue.
  • MRI. An MRI scan takes images of specific parts of the body using a magnetic field and radio waves.
  • CT-scan. A revolving X-ray tube takes cross-sectional images of specific body parts.

 

Radiological assessment often serves as supplementary testing for specific consultations, like neurology. At DC Klinieken we offer only diagnostic radiology, and no radiology treatments.
