Further consultation by medical specialists can be scheduled on the same day or shortly thereafter.
The preventive medicine specialist coordinates the individual examinations by the interdisciplinary team and integrates the individual findings into an appropriate context to obtain an holistic screening result enabling comprehensive lifestyle consultation.
WE ARE GLAD TO PROVIDE YOU WITH DETAILED ADVICE, SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US! Differences in cross-sectional imaging procedures:
Ultrasound: An ultrasound scan of the abdominal cavity visualizes the liver, gallbladder,
pancreas, spleen, kidneys, prostate, uterus, ovaries, lymph nodes and blood vessels.
Diseases in these structures, such as tumors, cysts or stones, are therefore easily visible.
The ultrasound image will be distorted if an individual is overweight or has not fasted
sufficiently. Air in the body (e.g. in the stomach or intestine) will also impair the image quality.
Magnetic resonance imaging - MRI: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an excellent
imaging method for visualizing the structures and functions of the tissues and organs in the
body. The quality, and in particular the local resolution, of the images produced by the MRI
equipment are superior to ultrasound scanning. The method does not involve any exposure
to radiation and is not associated with any health risks. MRI scanning of the organs is not
hindered by any of the obstacles and difficulties mentioned above, as is often the case with
ultrasound examinations. Unlike ultrasound, MRI is able to examine the entire anatomy of the
body (including the central nervous system, bone structure and also the vascular system by
using angiographic techniques). The whole body can be scanned by MRI, as opposed to
A total body MRI does not have the capability to effectively evaluate the lungs for cancer (if
indicated low-dose CT being more adequate). In addition, as a screening tool it is not optimal
for the diagnosis of early colon cancer ((if indicated optical or virtual colonography by low-
Multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) of the heart: If there is a justifiable indication
(from early detection procedures by EC as part of risk stratification), low-dose MSCT of the
coronary arteries is helpful for establishing calcifications, as a sign of atherosclerosis.
Internationally, professional associations have agreed that if the value is above the 75th
percentile (in other words, a value corresponding to the 25% 'worst' sex and age-referenced
values), preventive medication (usually aspirin and so-called statins) is appropriate as a
supplement to intensive lifestyle adjustments. These medications can reduce the relevant
risk of a heart attack by about 30%. In clinically 'demanding' cases, a non-invasive coronary
angiogram will be performed at EC using MSCT, the reliability of which is commensurate
with that of a standard heart catheter examination.
