Before using a diagnostic imaging method, there is usually a clear indication in a doctor's referral, a treatment-relevant, generally valid examination protocol dependent on the indication, or a diagnosis. We have compiled a comprehensive catalogue of indications, which contributes to the targeted and efficient use of our relevant diagnostic method.


Description Primary Secondary Tertiary
progressive neurological disorders (suspicion of tumour, metastasis) MRT CT
acute, non-traumatic neurological disorders (haemorrhaging, infarct, abscess) CT MRT & MR angiography
acute traumatic brain injury with any neurological symptoms (oedema, contusion, haemorrhaging) CT MRT
fluctuating neurological disorders or suspicion of demyelinating diseases (e.g.: MS) MRT
grand mal or focal epilepsy (tumour, vascular malformation) MRT PET-CT
temporal lobe epilepsy (hippocampal pathology) MRT PET-CT
neuroendocrine disorder with or without neurological symptoms (pituitary gland, hypothalamus) MRT CT
dementia and demential syndromes (Alzheimer's disease, multi-infarct dementia, etc.) MRT PET-CT CT
acute headache with meningism (e.g.: subarachnoid haemorrhage) CT & CT angiography MRT Angiography
chronic headache with neurological disorders MRT CT
infarcts or inflammatory diseases with negative CT MRT & MR angiography
acute impaired consciousness CT MRT
intellectual disability in childhood (congenital disorders, leukodystrophies) MRT
aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, vasculitis MRT & MR angiography CT angiography Angiography
cranial nerve disease (e.g.: trigeminal neuralgia, eye-muscle paralysis) MRT & MR angiography
