Information for referring physicians
Cooperating to put patient well-being first
You can feel confident, knowing that your patients are in good hands with us. From initial diagnosis to post-therapy follow-up, we are at each patient’s side providing a broad range of nuclear medicine and radiological examinations as well as supplementary laboratory diagnostics.
To deliver quality, personalized care, we rely on the experience and expertise of our staff in addition to state-of-the-art equipment for precise diagnostics. We provide the full range of services and skills under one roof, with short waiting times and expert diagnoses to ensure patient comfort.
In addition to patient well-being, we value good communication with our partners. Together, we earn patients’ trust in order to best serve them on their road to recovery.

It is our goal to ensure the well-being of our patients and provide them with superior care. This means approaching each case individually and actively discouraging assembly-line examinations.
As an organization standing for high-quality medical care with people at the center, we do more than issue a paper diagnosis. We listen and, together with you, support our patients with respect and compassion through each stage of their journey.
- Short waiting times
- Access to radiological and nuclear medicine expertise
- Diagnostics using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative methods
- Close communication between you as the referring physician and our specialist staff
At MCB, we offer a range of services in nuclear medicine and radiological imaging, specializing in the field of oncology. We have further expertise in neurology – especially in the early detection of degenerative diseases – cardiology, thyroid examinations and the diagnosis of osteoporosis. Here you will find a detailed overview of our examinations.
In our fully equipped laboratory with state-of-the-art Roche Cobas® Pro laboratory line, we can perform a wide range of laboratory tests, such as:
- Thyroid parameters
- Tumor markers
- Inflammation parameters
- Fertility hormones
- Trace elements
- Bone metabolism
- Lyme disease diagnostics
- Urine status
- Kidney parameters
- And other parameters
You can find a detailed overview of our laboratory parameters here.
Siemens Biograph Vision 450 PET/CT
The PET/CT is a Positron Emission Tomograph (PET) and computer tomograph (128 Edge) in one. For the examination, a small amount of a weakly radioactive substance called a tracer is injected into the patient. This tracer is metabolized and enriched in tumors and areas of inflammation in the body, which the PET scan can visualize. The exact anatomical assignment is made by fusing the PET image with the CT image.
We use a Siemens Biograph Vision 450, a second-generation digital PET/CT that uses innovative technology and a new design featuring LSO crystal detectors. This provides higher-resolution, more accurate imaging while reducing examination time and patient radiation exposure.
Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3 Tesla MRT
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a long-standing method that allows a wide range of examinations with low risk. We use a Siemens Magnetom Skyra 3 Tesla MRI. The digital tomograph captures detailed images in a fraction of the time of earlier machines. The high-quality images are characterized primarily by their consistency and efficiency. Intuitive protocol management leads to easy reproducibility of images and thus fewer failed exams. Also noteworthy is the increased patient comfort thanks to the gantry, which is only 163 cm long and even 70 cm wide, as well as the lightweight and quick-to-apply coils.
Siemens Symbia Intevo Bold SPECT/CT
A SPECT/CT is a combination of a single photon emission tomography (SPECT) and a computed tomography (CT). Here, SPECT can depict metabolic problems that can be precisely localized thanks to the cross-sectional imaging technique of CT.
At MCB, we use the Symbia Intevo Bold from Siemens. The device’s innovative software helps determine the correct radiation dose. Fast, efficient examinations without sacrificing high medical quality are thus possible.
Roche Cobas® Pro – laboratory line
To enable holistic diagnostics, we also perform comprehensive laboratory analyses in addition to imaging diagnostics. For this purpose, we use, among other things, the Roche Cobas® Pro laboratory line. This enables us to perform laboratory tests in a timesaving yet precise manner. The minimized operating and preparation effort helps us to concentrate on our patients. At the same time, the sample volume required for different examinations in just one run is very small. The innovative device allows short waiting times for detailed diagnostics and more time for the essentials of our work.
Agilent ICP-MS 7800 Mass Spectrometer
In addition to modern radiological and nuclear medicine examinations, we also perform laboratory tests. For this purpose, we use, among other things, the 7800 ICP-MS mass spectrometer from Agilent. The device enables precise analysis of samples for trace elements (iodine, zinc, selenium) and is therefore an important component especially of our thyroid diagnostics.
