List of investigations

At the Department of Clinical Physiology, Nuclear Medicine and PET we perform more than 60,000 patient investigations per year distributed on approximately 50 different examinations.


Some of our most frequently performed investigations are listed below grouped after the organ examined or the main purpose of the investigation.

If you follow the link, you will be re-directed to more detailed patient information (in Danish) regarding the examination. You will always be individually informed upon arrival to the department and during the examination. Patient information will also be send directly to you prior to your appointment at our department. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask or contact us in advance.
