Computed Tomography (CT) is a diagnostic method that has become indispensable in modern medicine. This examination method allows the body’s structures to be optimally displayed and assessed.
CT is fast and has the advantage of being very precise. I perform computed tomography in my practice for radiology and nuclear medicine in Berlin.
As statutory health insurance self-payer (GKV-Selbstzahler), you will find a price overview for various CT examinations here, structured according to the region of the body. This includes consultation, examination, computer-aided analysis, discussion of findings, and transmission of images and findings.

|Nasal sinuses||€ 185|
|Thorax (chest)||€ 200|
|Abdomen (abdominal cavity)||€ 220|
|Thorax & abdomen||€ 325|

- Fees are specified according to the fee scale for the German medical profession (GOÄ). The specified costs are to be understood as fixed prices for orientation.
- The exact costs may depend on the individual initial findings and apply for German self-payers. Different prices apply for foreign self-payers.
- The costs for contrast media are not included in these fixed prices. Administration of a contrast medium can cost between 120 and 150 euros. If the administration of contrast media is required for the examination, this is applied in consultation with the patient.
Interesting facts about computed tomography
Information on the function and use of CT
How an CT works
Computed tomography uses innovative X-ray technology and is a very proven imaging method. While you lie on the examination couch, the X-ray tube rotates around you along your body’s longitudinal axis in just a few seconds. X-rays penetrate your body and – depending on tissue density – are attenuated to varying degrees. The associated CT computer calculates high resolution 3D images from the individual sectional images. This enables selective and superimposition-free tissue imaging.
The use of an X-ray contrast medium for imaging diagnostics is mostly useful for depicting structural changes in organs and blood vessels in even greater detail. Changes in your body tissue can thus be analysed non-invasively, quickly and precisely.
An CT examination is useful in these cases
Computed tomography can be indicated for acute diagnostics in injuries and emergencies, for disease diagnostics and, in particular, for diagnosing the spread of known tumours, and monitoring therapy.
Certain regions of the body can be specifically examined and, if required, several regions of the body can be depicted in one examination.
