Digital Volume Tomography (DVT)
DVT recordings provide clarity and do not require much time. Whereas conventional computer tomographies scan bodies in little slices, the DVT works differently. While an arc moves around the head, it records 3-D and 2-D information within seconds. These DVT-recordings provide a very detailed view of bones. The major advantage: The radiation exposure is 90 per cent less compared to CT recordings.
This low-radiation method is not yet covered by statutory insurance. Hence, patients with statutory insurance bear costs between 200 and 250 €. Generally, private patients receive a refund.
