For your registration and your examination to proceed without any problems, you should bring the following documents with you:
- Health insurance card: This is used to enter your personal data into the practice information system.
- Letter of referral (compulsory for patients with statutory health insurance) containing details of the health issue and the examination desired.
- Preliminary findings and previous images: They facilitate the diagnosis and enable the assessment of a finding during the course of the examination.
- Laboratory values: A contrast agent is required during certain examinations for a more precise diagnosis. For this reason, the doctors require a current creatinine level for MRI and CT examinations for patients from the age of 50 as well as those with renal insufficiency. Thyroid TSH levels are additionally required for a CT scan using a contrast agent.
- Allergy pass: This contains information about the medicines, foodstuffs and other substances to which you are allergic.
Implant pass and MRI fitness certificates:
- Cochlear implants may be damaged during the MRI examination. Please do therefore bring a certificate of fitness for MRI with you.
- Analgesic pumps: Here you should also bring a no-objection certificate for MRI from the manufacturer.
- Ports: The latest ports are usually MRI-compatible. However, you should bring the port-implant pass received during implantation with you, as this specifically includes its suitability for MRI.
