Total Body Scan® – A journey through your body.
The Total Body Scan starts with a medical interview, in which your medical history, possible current complaints as well as the examinations are being discussed with a doctor. A clinical examination (abdominal scanning, blood pressure measurement etc) completes the medical history. Subsequently, the investigations included in the Total Body Scan start (CT, MRT, Ultrasound)
