In the course of carrying out imaging procedures for the early detection and prevention of various diseases over the past several years, the physicians at the ALTA Klinik have established a particular expertise in the area of prostate care. Using MRI, for instance, the medical center's specialists are able to visualize any relevant tissue changes in the prostate glands of patients with abnormal PSA levels. A number of years ago, Dr. Lumiani, the center's director, also succeeded in developing an MRI-guided procedure that enables radiologists to carry out precisely targeted biopsies of suspicious areas of tissue in the prostate. The access route used during this biopsy procedure is transdermal (through the skin) and not transrectal (through the rectum).
In addition to our physicians who specialize in the area of prostate care, our comprehensive team includes experienced internists, cardiologists and orthopedists. Every day, we carry out a full range of examinations to secure the prevention of heart attacks and strokes and to detect tumors and other pathological changes in the body.
