Early diagnosis / prevention

Many people are unaware that they have a number of risk factors for certain diseases including for example cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack or stroke. Many diseases can be identified, even before they cause symptoms, through the use of state-of-the-art imaging techniques. Early detection enables a successful treatment.
 
Take advantage of the modern facilities for individual screening by:

  • having a targeted examination performed of one or more organs, for example with known risk factors or for early detection of a tumour; and
  • completing an examination to clarify unclear symptoms or any signs of an impending or existing disease.

Wide range of prevention measures 

In addition to diagnostic evidence, we have been using the examination images also for early recognition of various diseases for many years. We offer a variety of early-detection measures including:

Examination, advice and care  

We perform all radiological screening tests with state-of-the-art devices. You will be under the care of highly qualified specialists who will customise each part of the examination to your specific health risks, and complete a thorough evaluation of the findings.
 
We place great value on a detailed consultation in which we accurately explain each examination result to you, and provide expert recommendations for further steps if necessary.

Early detection and prevention – what´s the difference? 

Screening examinations only provide a snapshot of your health status; they do not provide insight into future developments. The development of a disease can often be recognised in time, but not prevented. Thus a "real prevention" of diseases is not possible, even if the two terms are generally used interchangeably. However, the examination results can provide you valuable directions to prevent diseases, to minimise existing health risks, and to treat diseases successfully.
 
A comprehensive early-recognition examination usually requires steps in addition to the imaging examinations. These could include a thorough physical examination, or laboratory tests if necessary. Our screening tests are therefore always completed in close cooperation with your referring physician.
