Our radiology department is responsible for imaging of the body: radiologists search for the nature and location of a disease, injury or disorder by means of rays or waves. The most commonly used rays are X-rays (X-rays, CT scan), but nowadays sound waves (ultrasound) and magnetic fields (NMR scan) are also increasingly used. A multidisciplinary team is here for you with radiologists, nurses, technologists, secretary and a logistics employee.

CT scan radiologie

What can we help you with?

The service consists of several departments: classical radiology, mammography, ultrasound, CT scan, angiography with interventional radiology and NMR. Each of these techniques make their own contribution to imaging, and therefore several techniques are often complementary when examining a single organ. In many cases, a fluid is used that better distinguishes tissues from one another, called contrast fluids.

In the radiology department, both outpatients and hospitalised patients are examined.

Your radiology appointment

Be sure to always bring your doctor's request or prescription with you to your appointment at our radiology department.

Before you register at the radiology department, you must always enroll at the registration desk/registration kiosk in the entrance hall. For this, you need the following documents:

  • your identity card
  • the name of your GP and any home health care providers
  • an insurance card or payment agreement from insurance (if applicable)
  • a payment commitment from a CPAS (OCMW) or other agency that intervenes in the hospital bill (if applicable).

Different types of research

CT scan

RX examinations

This type of examination is called conventional radiology or diagnostic radiology. In an RX examination, we take images of parts of the body based on X-rays. The result is called radiographs, on which abnormalities can be shown such as fractures, pneumonia, osteoarthritis, heart size, etc.

> RX abdomen (belly)
> RX skeleton
> RX thorax (lungs)

CT scan radiologie

CT examinations

A CT-scan (computer tomography) forms an image of the body in a particular area by means of X-rays. Through this examination, we have the ability to detect abnormalities in certain organs.

> CT blood vessels (angio/cardio)
> CT chest (thorax)
> CT abdominal and pelvic organs (abdomen)
> CT limb
> CT skull
> CT virtual colonoscopy

NMR toestel

NMR examinations (MRI)

With an NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance), or MR(I), we image parts of the body by means of a magnetic field and radio waves. This is how we obtain 3D-images, disc images in three dimensions. No X-rays are used in an NMR examination. The examination can be considered harmless.

> NMR abdomen (abdomen)
> NMR blood vessels (angio)
> NMR bile ducts/pancreas (MRCP)
> NMR limb
> NMR mammo (breasts)
> NMR skull/brain
> NMR vertebral column

echo radiologie


An ultrasound is an examination of certain body parts or organs that uses sound waves to look inside the body.

> Ultrasound breasts
> Ultrasound upper abdomen
> Ultrasound duplex
> Ultrasound limbs
> Ultrasound lower abdomen

Specific ultrasound examinations:
> Ultrasound with biopsy
> Ultrasound 
with spotting (harpoon placement)

Breast examinations

Below you will find an overview of the different ultrasound examinations. Click on an examination for more detailed information.  

> Ultrasound breasts
> Ultrasound with biopsy
> Ultrasound with spotting (harpoon placement)
> mammography
> mammotome biopsy
> NMR mammography

Other specific examinations

CT scan Cone Beam

Using a Cone Beam, our radiology department can make maxillofacial (face and neck) and dental imaging. This allows us to take three-dimensional, high-resolution images of the facial skeleton and tooth elements and do so with a dramatically lower radiation dose compared to the conventional CT scan.

Below is an overview of the different examinations with this device: 
> CT scan Cone Beam
> Orthopantogram (OPG)
> Cephalogramme

Bone densitometry (DEXA)

A bone densitometry is a measurement of bone mineral density (BMD) at various places in the body such as the hip and spine and possibly the wrist or other bones. This examination uses a beam of very low-intensity X-rays to take images of these bones (hip, the lumbar spine column, the wrist) to measure the density of the bone and determine the degree of osteoporosis.
The examination can be performed using a DEXA device. This examination is completely painless and the amount of radiation is harmless. The examination takes only a few minutes.

Information on additional fees

Our radiologists are not part of the standard contract agreement. This means they may charge an additional fee beyond the standard copay for outpatient services.

Additional fees for MRI scans are not applied between 8 AM and 6 PM on weekdays. However, they are applied from 6 PM to 8 AM on weekdays, and throughout the day on weekends and public holidays. You'll be informed of this when you schedule your MRI, and you can choose accordingly. The fee for outpatient MRI scans is 41 euros.

Ultrasounds and X-rays always incur a 15% additional fee on top of the regular copay.

If you wish to know the additional fee for your procedure, feel free to ask our staff beforehand. If you qualify for additional financial assistance, no extra fee will be charged.
