Early detection saves lives

Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, and takes the lives of millions each year. In Sweden about 100.000 people get diagnosed with cancer each year, and for many it is detected at a very late stage. Early detection and diagnosis of cancer allows you to start treatment earlier and improve the prognosis, and may even save your life. A PET/CT scan is the leading method for diagnosing cancer as there are no other competing methods with the same level of precision.

AMRA® Profiler är ett verktyg som ger stöd vid diagnos och övervakning av metabola och muskel-relaterade sjukdomar. AMRA omvandlar 3D MR bilder från en snabb helkropps-scan till kvantitativa fett- och muskelvärden. 

AMRA® Profiler avger ingen joniserande strålning, och ger exceptionell mätnoggranhet och precision vid mätning av individens fett och muskler, samt fett-fördelning och metabol status. Med detta verktyg kan vi se högt visceralfett och dålig fett-fördelning och däri upptäcka ökad risk för typ II Diabetes och hjärt- kärlsjukdomar.

Early Detection Saves Lives

By detecting disease early, even before symptoms start to show, you increase your chances of successful treatment greatly. This can mean the difference between a good and bad prognosis, and maybe even life or death.

Take Control of Your Health

Ease your health concerns and take control by getting a detailed look into your inner health that detects even the smallest trace of cancer. If you have started showing symptoms you need to be examined and diagnosed quickly. Do not let your health suffer due to the healthcare system's long waiting times.
