According to need a contrast media will be used

  • Respiratory System and Diaphragm
  • Upper and Lower Digestive System
  • Urinary Tract System including Cystography following catherisation
  • Post surgery, stent implants, leakages and fistulae, with or without contrast media
  • Video fluoroscopy for swallowing and respiratory disorders
  • Urodynamic studies in cooperation with a urologist

Sundays to Thursdays, 08:30-14:00
Appointments: 972-3-9253541, Sundays to Thursdays, 08:00-14:00
