Introduction

Our practice in Witten offers you the possibility to have a whole-body magnetic resonance imaging with regard to health screenings.

As specialists for radiology, we act according to the premise “Anyone who recognizes an evil has almost cured it.“ (Prentice Mulford)

On this basis, we would like to offer you a check-up that detects your body’s disease-induced changes at an early stage and is performed as gently and time-efficiently as possible.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enables a layered representation of the tissues and structures of your body. Especially, in soft tissue diagnostics, the high-resolution images are really unsurpassable.

With the special web wiki: “Whole-body MRI in health prevention“ we would like to give you a guide that explains the whole-body MRI scan from the head to the tip of the toe. In the individual sections, we will focus on MRI imaging of possible diseases of the respective body area.

This web wiki will provide you with additional information about your whole-body check-up. In addition and in the course of the consultations, you have the opportunity to discuss and clarify specific questions regarding diagnostics with us.
