Frequently asked questions!
Most examinations (ultrasound, MRI, etc .) are completely harmless. Only a CAT scan is not without risks, due to the X-rays. A CAT scan will therefore only be made when this is absolutely necessary.
A CAT scan takes less time than an MRI scan and delivers sharp images. An MRI scan takes longer and shows more detail of soft tissue. For detecting a hernia or a shoulder dysfunction for instance, this scan is ideal.
The doctor’s advise is focused on potential health risks you run. A healthy lifestyle is important, but possibly changing your lifestyle is your own choice. You do not have to apologize for your weight, smoking or alcohol consumption.
The MRI scan, also called the ‘total body scan’ nowadays, is very popular. We do not normally recommend a full body scan however, since these kind of scans are superficial and don’t provide any information about the functioning of your organs. We only use the MRI scan for specific cases to examine small targeted areas.
We offer many different examination packages, so the price depends on your own personal wishes. The packages itself range from 39 euros for a blood test, to 1892 euros for the most comprehensive package. The Dr. Keulen Kliniek has competitive rates. If you are comparing us to other clinics, carefully examine what examinations you will be getting for your money, since we offer more extensive packages than most other clinics.
It is possible that your health insurance covers certain examinations (partly). However, you should check this with your insurance company. For companies, costs are often deductible.
There are no age restrictions when it comes to having your own health examined. Nowadays, people live more intensively and demand more from themselves. Our lifestyle has changed as well in recent decades; we move less and eat more (unhealthy food). This increases the health risks. Preventive medicine is therefore not just a luxury, even if you are only 40 years old.
