Preventive examinations can be conveniently combined as in our check-up packages.

The focus of your check-up can include these examples:

 

Vascular

Vascular health is a common concern nowadays. At our institute, we are capable of examining all veins and arteries in your body thanks to advances in modern medicine. Duplex sonography employs ultrasound technology. Angiography (vascular imaging) is radiation-free, which is made possible by MRI technology. CT angiography can be useful in some cases too, e.g. coronary vessels can be rendered visible by a cardiac CT scan.

Cardiovascular

The health of your heart can be tested at our institute firstly by means of ultrasound (echocardiogram) combined with an exercise ECG. This is complemented by an analysis of your veins and arteries. If there is any evidence of heart disease, we may recommend a safe cardiac MRI or a coronary CT scan.

Cardiopulmonary

Our pulmonologists Dr. Fisher and Dr. Freyburg are experts of the human respiratory system. An examination of the heart using an ultrasound, MRI, or CT scan can be supplemented by a pulmonary function test (a so-called body plethysmography). If there are risk factors such as smoking in clients 40 years of age or older, then we recommend a preventive examination of the lungs with the help of a low-dose CT scan.

Stress and Acute Stress Reaction (ASR)

Stress and acute stress reactions (ASR) cause unpleasant symptoms which we regularly observe in our patients. These include, but are not limited to, chest pain, heart palpitations, fatigue, shortness of breath, and sleeplessness. It is of fundamental importance to ascertain and classify these symptoms. Clients who find out thanks to us that their symptoms are not the result of a disease are very often relieved. The diagnostic steps include an MRI of the brain, a neurological test, and an integrated stress test. Upon request, we also offer our clients coaching and counseling sessions.

Sleep disorders

When falling asleep or sleeping in general becomes a problem, there can be diverse physical causes that we need to take into account. Fortunately, we are able to offer our clients medical expertise in the science of sleep disorders at Intersleep, located on our own premises. Screening your nightly sleep is easy at home thanks to our outpatient monitoring techniques (so-called polysomnography). During the consultation in our offices, your case will be examined and a recommendation will be made by an interdisciplinary team of medical specialists - a pulmonologist, a cardiologist, an ENT physician, and a dentist.

Athletes

Our institute features optimal conditions when it comes to athletic testing. In addition to standard cardiac and vascular examinations using ultrasound (e.g. echocardiography) and, as need be, MRI and CT scans, we also carry out tests of physical fitness by means of spiroergometry. This can be conducted either on a treadmill or a bicycle ergometer. Spiroergometry is used to determine your anaerobic threshold.

Musculoskeletal system

Back problems and joint pain rank among the most common ailments for many people. These cannot usually be distinguished from symptoms caused by cardiac or vascular problems. For this reason, you will be examined by our in-house orthopedist Dr. Hannemann. He can come to an exact conclusion concerning your muscular and/or joint pain on the basis of targeted MRI pictures and an interdisciplinary consultation with one or more of our cardiologists.

Steps of a Check-up

You arrive at our office on an empty stomach and wearing comfortable clothes. First we take a sample of your blood to guarantee a quick and smooth procedure. Then we have a thorough introductory discussion. Afterwards the different examinations take place.

During your stay, we are happy to offer to a snack as well as cold and warm beverages. (Please tell us about any food intolerances you may have upon your arrival at our office!)

Additionally, we offer you further services in other fields of expertise. These examinations can usually even be arranged and conducted on the very same day in our facilities. Only for some kinds of examinations is it necessary to visit another medical office, but do not worry because most of our colleagues are located within walking distance of our offices.

We can offer you the following additional fields of expertise:

 

  • Orthopedics
