Special Imaging

MRI-MedicalPeriodically, patients of our clinic have diagnostic imaging needs which cannot be met using our clinic equipment. In these cases, we work with our large network of outside providers located at various hospitals and other facilities. Within a short time frame, we are able to arrange most special scans (e.g. MRI, CT, PET) and other diagnostic examinations in cardiology and internal medicine.

Generally these tests will be requested by one of FirstMed’s doctors. However, we can also arrange for such exams where the request comes from another doctor (in Hungary or elsewhere), in which case the referral letter must come from them. All such requests are reviewed by our medical director to make certain that a doctor takes medical responsibility for the patient’s care, as well as to ensure that for all diagnostic tests that the expected benefits exceed any risks associated with the procedure.
