MRI at Lanserhof at The Arts Club in London
At Lanserhof at The Arts Club in London, our members and patients can take advantage of a procedure called magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An MRI provides sectional images of the inside of your body and is particularly suitable for displaying body tissue, muscles and blood vessels as well as organs. Thus, an MRI allows us to identify possible damages or diseases that cannot be detected otherwise. An MRI can also provide a detailed picture of your body's composition.
MRI: Body Composition Analysis
The body mass index (BMI) alone is not sufficient for assessing your ideal body weight as it disregards your unique body composition of water, fat, muscles and other tissue. The body composition influences not only your appearance but also your health. A high fat percentage for example puts a considerable strain on the cardiovascular system and promotes diseases like diabetes.
MRI scans give us a detailed picture of your body composition and allow for an accurate analysis. This enables our specialists to make predictions about diseases and prevention recommendations. In addition, this knowledge forms the basis of your health and fitness plan.
In our department in London, our medical staff has access to the latest equipment, including the AMRA® Profiler, which delivers body scans in just 6 minutes.
The MRI scans with AMRA® show:
- Visceral fat tissue
- Abdominal subcutaneous fat tissue
- Liver fat
- Slim thigh muscle volume
- Muscle fat infiltration
Procedure of Magnetic Resonance Imaging
An MRI is a gentle, non-invasive and usually risk-free examination. Instead of X-rays, an MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to scan the body. That is why an MRI is also safe for pregnant women and children. In some cases, a contrast agent is used to distinguish different tissue types from each other.
