What is Examined During a Total Body Scan®?
Included in our Total Body Scan® Standard is the examination of the most important organs and blood vessels with the help of an MRI. We analyse your carotid artery and thyroid gland by using an ultrasound. Finally, we thoroughly check your lungs and thorax with a CT scan (low dose).
Preventive Screening with the Total Body Scan®
Our Total Body Scan® is a medical check-up consisting of radiological examinations MRI, CT, and ultrasound. This comprehensive screening can help to rule out tumour diseases, heart attacks, and strokes. At the same time, it provides a comprehensive insight into your current state of health in just one day.
We offer the check-up in four variants/packages to satisfy different needs.
Regardless of the package we always examine the most important organs and blood vessels. Depending on your state of health and possible health risks, all packages can be individually adapted or supplemented with additional examinations such as heart and laboratory tests.
Our preventive screenings usually take 1.5 to 5 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. You will receive a DVD with all scans to take home. The final written report will be sent to you by post after evaluation and validation a few days later.
Content and Procedure of a Total Body Scan®
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.
An MRI provides helpful insight to detect harmful changes like a tumour, cerebral infarction, bleeding, and infections in an early stage. We examine your cervical spine for problems like herniated disc, trauma, narrowing, wear and tear and cervical spine syndrome.
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.
The results of the examination will be discussed with you in detail during the consultation. We always take plenty of time for our customers.
You will get the results of all examinations after evaluation and validation as a written and digital report.
