For men’s peace of mind

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. However, kidney and bladder tumours can also appear in the urogenital tract area. The prospects of recovery are particularly good for prostate and bladder cancer if detected early. As part of this check-up exam you will receive a detailed urological diagnosis using ultrasound and MRI, as well as a urine analysis.

Our urological check-up packages

Basic: MRI of the prostate, discussion of findings, handover of images and medical report.

Advanced: detailed urological medical history, urological physical examination, ultrasound exam of the pelvis with prostate imaging, urine analysis (inter alia for blood), MRI of the prostate, discussion of findings, handover of images and medical report.

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

1

Preparation
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 urologist 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.
