Welcome by the doctor
Before we start with the check-up, our medical team has a few questions for you: Do you have any complaints at the moment? What are your lifestyle habits? Which medications do you take? This conversation will be based on a medical questionnaire completed in advance.
Risk factor analysis
cardiovascular risk calculator
We check the status of the immune system.
A full physical examination(e.g. auscultation of heart and lungs, palpation of abdominal organs, blood pressure measurement) is, of course, part of all our check-up packages.
Right at the beginning of the check-up we take some blood from a vein in your arm. While you are undergoing your check-up all important blood parameters are determined. Most results will already be available by the end of the check-up.
Body composition analysis
This pain-free examination determines not only your body weight, but also your body composition(fat mass, fat-free mass) using bioelectrical impedance analysis.
Pulse wave analysis
State-of-the-art, pain-free procedure to determine arterial stiffness (an early symptom of atherosclerosis and, thus, an indicator of your heart attack and stroke risk).
Cardiac ultrasound examination is performed using high-end equipment, permitting conclusions to be made on the function of the heart and heart valves.
Duplex sonography of the carotid arteries
Ultrasonic examination of the arteries supplying the brain: Important data consist of the so-called intima media thickness of the carotid arteries measured quantitatively, as well as the determination of plaques and vascular constrictions which may trigger strokes.
Sonography of the thyroid gland
The thyroid gland (dimension, structure, nodes) is always examined thoroughly.
Ultrasound of abdominal organs
3 Tesla full-body MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
Radiation-free examination of the head, chest, abdominal and pelvic organs, blood vessels and the musculoskeletal system. If requested, this includes a virtual colonoscopy (i.e.without introducing an endoscope). For this examination, however, the intestines have to be cleansed in advance.
Now you deserve a break. You can choose between different types of breakfast which will be served in your own personal lounge.
A dermatological examination including video dermatoscopy is also part of all our check-up packages. If requested, minor skin lesions/moles can be removed right away (not included in the packages).
Heart rate variability
