Full-body MRI

A full-body MRI scan is a comprehensive examination that provides detailed images of the entire body. The aim is to detect diseases and conditions in the body at an early stage. This allows for early treatment and thus better chances of recovery.

At Progardia, we offer full-body MRI scanning in a 3 tesla MR scanner. This means that you get the absolute best scan the market offers - and performed by the best specialists in Denmark.

Full-body MRI scan is a screening which is particularly good at seeing changes in the brain, spinal cord, sinuses, ears, neck, blood vessels, bones, muscles, liver, kidneys, adrenal glands, spleen, pancreas, bladder and the whole back - from the neck to the tailbone. In women, the uterus, ovaries and vagina are also screened - just as it is also possible to see any leakage of breast implants.

In case of positive findings on the full-body MRI scan, it may in some instances be necessary to supplement with further examinations, such as a prostate scan.

Process

We understand the importance of short wait times once one has decided to be scanned. You can expect that it does not take more than 5 days before you are scanned and then about 1 week until you have a response to the scan.

It works like this:

  • Booking of process with our secretaries
  • Telephone conversation with MR specialist. This is to ensure the necessary, individual adaptation of the MRI scan.
  • Scanning is conducted and is handled by our experienced radiographers. A whole body scan takes approx. 1 hour and 20 minutes.
  • Our radiologists go through the approx. 4,200 images. At Progardia, the images are reviewed by at least 2 different radiologists, each with their own area of expertise. Hereby we ensure the best possible interpretation of the images.
  • After the scan, you will receive an answer by telephone from our specialist.
