Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

When is an MRI performed?

To be examined


Inflammation, tumour, cerebral haemorrhage, stroke, vascular disease


Vascular imaging of the arteries and veins, especially in the head and neck area to exclude a vascular protrusion (aneurysm), a vascular con-striction, or a vascular occlusion (thrombus)


Inflammation, tumours, assessment of salivary glands


Inflammation, tumour, lymph node diseases

Chest MRI

See Mamma-MRI

Abdominal Area

Sports injuries, consequences of accidents, wear disorders, inflammation

How is an MRI performed?

Equipment: Magnetom Symphony by Siemens with a field strength of 1.5 Tesla
Special preparations are not required. Examination is not possible in case of metal implants (e.g. cardiac pacemakers, drug pumps) or metallic debris (e.g. grenade fragments).

In an MRI, sectional images are taken that are based on the deflection of hydrogen atoms in the magnetic field. Many examinations require the administration of a contrast agent into the vein. The contrast agent is extremely well tolerated and allergic reactions, which we can treat immedi-ately with medication, are very rare.

At about 16 ml, the amount administered is very low. We use a high-quality product with the lowest possible risk classification. The examination is not associated with X-rays.

Magnetic resonance imaging offers the advantage of being able to distinguish many different types of tissue. In addition, planning the examination and thus the image acquisition are possible primarily without recalculation at every level of space. The domain of MRI focuses on the nerv-ous system, spine, joints, and chest.

The examination lasts 15 to 30 minutes depending on the body region. The evaluation of the images on the device and by the doctor takes another 15 to 30 minutes.
