Using special diagnostic measures
- the development of diseases can be prevented.
- diseases can be detected early and thus the chances of healing can be increased.
The rapid technical progress, in particular in the field of radiology, creates the possibility of more and more exact and, at the same time, less serious diagnoses.
Many screening examinations and examinations for the early detection of diseases will only be reimbursed for by statutory health assurance companies if prior diseases or current complaints constitute a medical indication for the workup of the symptoms.
From a medical point of view, however, screening examinations that are formally not refundable are useful in many cases. Members of a statutory health insurance will have to pay themselves for these services that will be invoiced directly to the patients according to "Gebührenordnung für Ärzte" (German Medical Fee Schedule).
A decision for such an examination requires a comprehensive explanation of the advantages and disadvantages of a method, its consequences and alternatives. You will find more information on the early detection screenings offered by our practice in the following information brochures that you can download below.
