Diagnostics

Our extensive diagnostic capabilities enable our specialists to thoroughly examine your heart, lungs, thyroid gland, liver, stomach, colon and pancreas and to reliably determine the most important risk factors such as blood fat levels, blood sugar levels, blood pressure and tumor markers. Following completion of the examinations, our physicians will conduct an extensive final discussion with you and prepare a detailed written report of diagnostic findings for you.

At Dr. Baumstark Clinic, we tailor our wide range of diagnostic capabilities to meet your personal needs and offer you a choice of two preventive medical check-ups of varying scope: the “Basic Check-up” and the more extensive “Expanded Check-up”. Please ask about the duration and scope of these check-ups.

To be able to fulfill the demanding requirements of modern medicine, Dr. Baumstark Clinic utilizes state-of-the-art medical equipment and procedures.

  • Laboratory
    Laboratory medicine focuses on examining (human) body materials (blood, stools, urine, swabs) to exclude or confirm illnesses and to (therapeutically) monitor illnesses.
  • Digital radiography
    X-Rays form a central part of radiological diagnostics. X-Rays are a painless procedure whereby the rays penetrate the body imperceptibly and are captured in measurable form by detectors behind the body. The result in each case is a static picture providing a snapshot image of the skeleton or internal organs. Since 2007, Dr. Baumstark Clinic has been equipped with digital radiography equipment. This advancement of X-Ray technology facilitates the interpretation of radiological examinations by, for example, considerably reducing the radiation load while at the same time improving the quality of the images. The images are digitalized on a computer screen and can be processed directly. The results of the examination can be forwarded onto the attending physician as soon as the examination is completed. Digital X-Rays virtually eliminate light exposure errors and unnecessary X-Rays for control purposes.
  • ECG
    Electrocardiographs capture the sum of electrical activity of all heart muscle fibers. An ECG is very useful for providing a wide range of information about heart characteristics and diseases.
  • Exercise ECG
    Exercise ECGs are used to determine the maximum level of stress, possible blood circulation problems and the rate by which blood pressure and heart frequency increase under stress.
  • Long-term ECG
    Patients wear a portable ECG device, usually for a period of 24 hours, to capture long-term ECGs. They are used for cardiac rhythm diagnostics.
  • Echocardiogram
    Echocardiography is the term used to describe the sonographic examination of the heart. These examinations are used to show the size of the individual chambers, pump function and functions of the individual cardiac valves. They are also a fast and safe means of detecting cardiac defects.
  • Long-term blood pressure measurement
    A long-term blood pressure measurement involves regular measurement of the blood pressure over a period of 24 hours to create a blood pressure profile.
  • Spirometry
    Spirometry is a procedure for examining lung function. It measures the lung and respiratory volume and visualizes it in a spirogram.
  • Sonography of abdomen, joints and thyroid gland
    An ultrasound examination (sonography) visualizes various parts of the body using ultrasonic waves. It is a widely used procedure for initial diagnosis.
  • Color duplex sonography
    Color duplex sonography is used to examine blood vessels. It is a diagnostic procedure that is relatively easy to perform and does not expose the patient to radiation.
