Cross-sectional imaging techniques:
Anthropometry including bioimpedance analysis calculations of body mass index (BMI), waist and hip circumference [waist-to-hip-ratio (WHR), waist-to- height ratio (WHtR)] as well as body composition (fat, water, biomass). For nicotine dependency: questionnaire on physical nicotine dependency as a basis for nicotine withdrawal (Fagerström test) Standardized WHO questionnaire on well-being as a basis for Differential (large) blood count including differentiation of white total cholesterol, HDL/LDL cholesterol and cholinesterase, bilirubin, lipase, amylase Renal values: creatinine, urea, uric acid sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, ferritin, phosphate, Urine status: pH, leukocytes, protein, glucose, ketone, erythrocytes, urobilinogen, nitrite, density, bilirubin ScheBo® o 2in1 Quick™ test (immunological faecal BASIC PLUS STANDARD
NMP22® BladderChek® Test (immunological bladder Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) with calculation of androgen index (aging male Instrumental examination of the organs and blood vessels Whole body MRI and MRA: Imaging method for visualizing the structure and function of tissues and organs, the bone structure especially degenerative alterations of the spine and also the vascular system and the especially early, so-called preclinical atherosclerosis which is already important for indication of preventive measures to significantly improve prognosis Duplex sonography of the carotid arteries incl. age and sex- adjusted intima-media thickness measurement Fitness assessment (cardiovascular check) Ergospirometry with ECG, incl. pulmonary function Heart rate variability to determine psychosomatic stress levels Real-time 3D echocardiography (cardiac defect) Pulse wave analysis, incl. ABI index (ankle-brachial index) Long-term blood pressure (for hypertension) Closing discussion, illustration and interpretation of all the Lifestyle advice tailored to individual findings Written, easily comprehensible final report with CD-ROM Supplementary check-up services
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.


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.
