Early detection and treatment - don’t forget

Forgetfulness and difficulty concentrating are no longer just issues for the elderly. More and more young people are suffering from memory problems, known as neurocognitive impairments. It is advisable to undergo a neurocognitive exam to distinguish between disorders brought on by stress and everyday life and those caused by pathological changes. MRIs can help detect changes to the blood vessels early and allow you to get the necessary treatment in time. In collaboration with renowned neurologists, the specialist radiologists at our medneo diagnostics centres offer various neurological check-up programmes for early diagnosis and to rule out pathological changes in the brain and cranial blood vessels.

Our neurological check-up packages:

Basic: MRI of the skull and the intracranial cerebral vessels. Detection / exclusion of circulatory problems in the brain, of narrowing and pathological expansion of the intracranial cerebral vessels.

Advanced: additional neurological check-up exam with a neurological specialist and expert. Detailed specialist neurological examination (including neuropsychological and neuropsychiatric test procedures) and subsequent MRI scan to image the brain and intracranial cerebral vessels.

Premium: in addition to the neurological exam and MRI diagnostics, as part of the premium package you receive a supplementary neurophysiological exam (electrocephalogram (EEG) with survey of evoked potentials).

Low-risk and radiation-free care.

An MRI scan is one of the most reliable and low-risk diagnostic procedures. Compared to X-rays or CT (computer tomography), the MRI exam creates images using magnetic fields and not through the use of X-rays. This makes the MRI a pain, radiation and side effect-free examination method with high diagnostic significance.

The examination procedure


After your friendly welcome, taking down of your personal information and explanatory meeting with the radiologist of your choice, you will be prepared for your examination. Administration of a contrast agent is required for this examination. Unlike conventional x-ray contrast agents, the contrast agents used by medneo contain no iodine and are instead made from gadolinium, so there are far fewer undesirable side effects. Your radiologist will give you detailed information on the risks and side effects before the start of the exam. You will then lie on a special MRI bed and be given headphones to protect against the loud machine noises. These headphones can be used to listen to your favourite music during the examination. You then enter the MRI device.


The examination
As soon as you hear the characteristic, loud knocking noises, the device is working and taking images. During this time it is very important that you do not move. There are several short sequences one after the other that all sound different. You will be accompanied by our staff at every stage of the exam and be given precise information on each of the individual exam steps.


The image evaluation
Your radiologist examines the images after the exam. Both the medical report and MRI images are then sent to you or your referring doctor, or to the specialist providing further treatment. Your neurologist will then have a final consultation with you. If required, we will gladly refer you to further specialists and provide you with an interpreter during the entire examination and discussion of the findings.
