Benefits of MRI in the Context of Screenings
In our Institute for Preventive Medicine in Witten we offer you whole-body MRI examinations in the context of medical screening.
Our work is based on the principle of “We identify. We know. We provide for your health.“
In addition to the possibility to undergo individual check-ups with the appropriate specialist doctors, you have the opportunity to have them carried out almost completely within an one-hour examination.
The MRI technique is a high-quality imaging of your organs as well as of the surrounding soft and hard tissues during the whole-body scanning process. MRI is particularly suitable for the high-quality presentation of soft tissue structures. It is now regarded as the gold standard in diagnostics, especially with regard to inflammatory processes or tumor formation and propagation.
It already provides indications of pathological tissue and structural changes at a very early stage, long before typical symptoms of the disease would become noticeable. This is an essential advantage of whole-body MRI diagnostics: In most cases, the earliest stages of a disease are very well curable and can be optimally influenced by the appropriate specialist physicians through targeted preventive measures.
