3-TESLA CARDIAC MRI EXAMINATION

3-Tesla cardiac MRI in Meerbusch and Düsseldorf: We get to the bottom of your symptoms

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an innovative imaging procedure that we use to specifically investigate heart and vascular diseases as well as many cardiology and angiology issues.

At Cardiomed24, we work with the excellent 3 Tesla MRI from Siemens Healthineers. Heart and vessels can be imaged with high resolution and excellent image quality. We offer our patients examinations on a highly developed 3-Tesla MRI, whose field strength is twice as high as that of conventional MRIs. This enables high-resolution cross-sectional images of the heart (cardiac MRI) and the vascular system (MR angiography, vascular MRI), on which even the smallest changes become visible in short examination times – with magnetic fields and without X-rays!

MEDICAL HISTORY AND INFORMATION

Possible applications of magnetic resonance imaging

3-Tesla MRI offers a wide range of applications, e.g.

  • Functional diagnostics

  • Morphological examination

  • Ischemia and vitality diagnostics

  • Flow measurements

  • Vascular imaging (angiography)

When it comes to diagnostics using modern cross-sectional imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), you can rely on our experienced cardiologists. After all, cardiology and angiology training and expertise are crucial for the professional and appropriate interpretation of the findings and further therapeutic decision. We welcome you at the MRI suite and perform your 3 Tesla MRI scan with all our expertise and knowledge.

Cardio-MRI: Contraindications

A cardiac MRI examination is not possible or only possible to a limited degree in patients with

  • Pacemakers, defibrillators, insulin pumps, cochlear implants

  • Vascular and aneurysm clips in the head

  • Pregnancy

  • pronounced claustrophobia (many patients with claustrophobia can have the examination performed without any problems after taking a mild sedative – please contact us)

Are you unsure whether a cardiac MRI is possible for you? We would be happy to check whether the examination is an option for you.

Procedure of your MRI examination at Cardiomed24

1.

You make an appointment: To make an appointment, please send us an email at info@cardiomed24.de or book your appointment promptly via Doctolib. If you book your appointment individually, please contact us promptly by e-mail so that we can have a preliminary discussion with you and clarify all organizational matters.

2.

You come to the examination on the agreed date: we perform your MRI on the premises of our cooperation partner medneo Diagnostikzentrum, Berliner Allee 44, in Düsseldorf.

3.

We prepare you for the MRI: Before the examination, we explain to you once again the exact procedure. For certain indications, we will administer a contrast agent.

4.

You are allowed to relax: During the examination, you lie with part of your body in the short and wide-open MRI tube. By means of short radio waves and magnetic fields, your tissue is stimulated to emit electromagnetic pulses. During this process, you will hear a tapping sound from the magnetic coils. After about 40 minutes, your cardiac MRI will be completed and you will be allowed to go home.

5.

We will discuss the results with you: You will get an initial assessment right away. After complete evaluation, we will send you your findings by e-mail or mail. A detailed discussion of the findings can take place either on the premises of medneo in Düsseldorf or separately in our practice in Meerbusch-Büderich. Here we can discuss the examination results with you in detail and, if necessary, plan further therapy.

Our expertise in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging

Professor Burkhard Sievers, MD, has many years of expertise in the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases using cardiovascular MRI and CT. He is certified (Level III nationally and internationally), a Fellow of the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (FSCMR) and holds the medical association’s MRI specialist certificate.

Professor Sievers has worked and published scientifically in the field of cardiovascular cross-sectional imaging using magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography for many years at renowned universities both nationally and internationally. Among others, he worked at the renowned Royal Brompton Hospital, Imperial College in London, UK and at the world-renowned Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, USA, where he did clinical and scientific work and research in the Department of Cardiology and the Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Unit for almost 3 years. In particular, the MRI laboratory at Duke University (DCMRC), with well over 4,000 examinations annually, is world-renowned for the invention of the so-called late enhancement, infarct imaging, and also imaging of circulatory disorders of the heart. In Germany, Professor Sievers has helped to establish and manage MRI laboratories at several locations, including universities.
