Re: Cost of CT scan?

View Post
About 3 years ago I voluntered for 2 CT scans on my head and abdomen for research purposes, and I received a copy of the images. I asked my "House doctor" if she would like a copy kept in my records and she informed me that it was irrelevant, as it requires a specialist to interpret the results.

So the second question is who will interpret the scanned data?

And the first question is why do you think you need a CT scan?

My response to your first question is, I don't know, mine was free of all charges.

If you go to any doctor they will best inform you, and the health insurance will pay for the visit.
My brother is a doctor but he's not in Switzerland. It costs around 170Fr in his hospital to do a CT scan but I'm wondering if I should be doing the CT scan here in Switzerland as I'm insured here.

As to the purpose, I'm connected to people who can read CT scan and give me advise. I already did some X-ray but doctors in Switzerland can't find anything useful from X-ray so I consulted my brother for his opinion. He advised me to take a CT scan and that's the context of my question.
