5 targeted MRI scans
An MRI scan is a non-invasive and safe method for detecting potential health risks and diseases. Along with a blood test, it provides an accurate evaluation of your overall health without exposing you to harmful X-rays. The scan lasts about 60 minutes and covers areas like the skull & brain, neck vessels, chest, upper abdomen, and lower abdomen. You lie comfortably on a table and listen to music during the procedure. If you have claustrophobia, a personal attendant will assist you, and you can notify the lab technician if you feel uncomfortable. However, avoid wearing metal and makeup during the scan, as they may interfere with the examination.
Laboratory tests are also available, including cholesterol, glucose, kidney function, liver function, iron, vitamin D, and a large blood count. Additional laboratory tests for vitamins and minerals, hormones, or allergies are also available.
However, the MRI images cannot make a statement about the functioning of organs, complaints that only manifest themselves in a certain posture or situation, general complaints such as weight loss, weight gain, or general malaise, fat distribution, osteoporosis, and muscular rheumatism.
It is important to prioritize one's health and undergo regular examinations, including radiology and cardiology, to maintain good health and detect any abnormalities at an early stage.
