Vein X-ray (phlebography)    

A contrast agent containing iodine is injected into a vein in the foot for this examination. It takes about five minutes for each leg.


    No food intake three hours before the examination    
    Patients should drink plenty up to one hour before the examination and then ingest no more fluids    
    Wear comfortable shoes to the examination – your foot will be bandaged afterwards    

      We need the following essential patient data from you    

Current blood count data: creatinine level, glomerular filtration rate (GFR), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level.


If you have diabetes, please bring a list of your regular medication when you come to make an appointment. Some medications have to be temporarily discontinued before an examination if you have excessively high creatinine levels. Our assistants will provide more detailed information about this when you make your appointment.

If you are on anticoagulant medication (e.g. ThromboAss, Marcoumar, etc.), please tell the physician or the assistant before the examination.
