Our preventive screenings usually take 1.5 to 4 hours to complete depending on the scope of services. Independent medical specialists prepare the findings. The results are then discussed with you verbally on the day of the examination. After the discussion of the findings, you will receive your images of the radiological examinations digitally, as well as a written final report.
Content and Procedures of the Total Body Scan® Excellent
Our independent cooperating physicians devote plenty of time to take a detailed medical history and discuss with you your current health status and any health complaints. Our friendly and supportive staff will accompany you during the examination.
With the help of an MRI, changes like tumours, cerebral infarction, bleedings, and inflammation can be detected early on. We examine your cervical spine and look for conditions like herniated disc, trauma, constrictions, wear and tear, and cervical spine syndrome. We also thoroughly check your upper and lower abdomen.
With a CT of the thorax our physicians can diagnose chronic lung disease (COPD), pneumonia, a lung tumour, or a blocked blood vessel in the direction of the lungs (pulmonary embolism). If indicated, a cardiac CT (calcium scoring) is performed to examine possible calcifications of the coronary vessels. This is a low-dose procedure, the examination is low in radiation.
We examine the carotid artery and thyroid gland thoroughly by ultrasound. The tissue reflects the ultrasound waves which makes it possible to visualise the tissue structure and detect any changes.
In the laboratory, your blood values, as well as urine and stool, will be examined extensively. Blood and urine will be taken on-site on the day of the examination. Please come to the blood collection on an empty stomach. The stool sample collection kit will be sent to you in advance.
The results of the examination will be discussed with you in detail during the consultation. We always take plenty of time for our customers.
After the discussion of the findings, you will receive your images of the radiological examinations digitally, as well as a written final report.
