Clinical research

All medical examinations begin with a clinical examination: for example, your height, weight and BMI are measured and your specialist may "listen" to your heart and lungs (auscultation), enlarged thyroid gland, feel for swollen glands or "lumps" in the chest, enlarged organs in abdomen such as liver or aorta, growths on or under the skin, groin ruptures, scar fractures, and so on.

Blood and urine tests

These tests give us a lot of information about the functioning of the kidneys and liver, cholesterol levels, sugar levels, blood diseases such as leukemia can be excluded. Furthermore, signs of prostate cancer, thyroid function, as well as vitamin deficiencies and infections including STDs, can be checked. Depending on your individual state of health, other more specific blood or urine tests may of course be appropriate.

Electrocardiogram (ECG).

The electrocardiogram at rest (ECG) or "heart clip" provides valuable information: arrhythmias of the heart can be ruled out, thickening of the heart muscle and past infarcts can be revealed, and it can also show if there are narrowing of your coronary arteries.

Bicycle test

The bicycle test is also called ergometry or exercise ECG. After the resting ECG, you are put under load step by step, the resistance at which you cycle is increased every minute, until your heart reaches the frequency set for your age. An ECG is taken of your heart every minute during the different load stages. This test serves mainly to check for narrowing of the coronary arteries (coronaries), but also gives a picture of your general physical condition.


The echocardiography or echo of the heart can answer the following important questions: is the heart pumping normally? What is the strength of the heart? Are the different atria/chambers dilated (e.g. ig.v. a heart muscle disease or high blood pressure)? Are the valves working properly, not leaking, not calcified? Is there excess pressure on the lungs? Are there any congenital heart defects?

Echo abdomen

This is an ultrasound of the abdomen: the kidneys, bile ducts, gallbladder, liver and the large artery in the abdomen (aorta) can be checked, among other things. Kidney stones, gallstones, certain cancers or an upcoming artery rupture can be detected this way, among other things.

Pulmonary function testing

A pulmonary function test measures the capacity of your lungs through a breathalyzer. The results are compared to people of your age and stature. Incipient asthma or COPD, among others, can be detected with this.

Eye or ear tests

A dipotry or "eye measurement" is the measurement of the required spectacle strength: don't forget to bring your glasses. An eye pressure measurement can rule out excessive pressure or glaucoma. An audiometry or hearing test gives a picture of the severity of hearing loss and the type of hearing loss.

Mammography and ultrasound of the breasts

A dipotry or "eye measurement" is the measurement of the glasses strength needed: don't forget to bring your glasses. A mammogram and/or ultrasound of the breasts can detect breast cancer at an early stage. An estimated 1 in 12 women get breast cancer sooner or later, and it is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 50 and 69. It is recommended that every woman have this examination once every 2 years starting at age 50. If there are breast cancers in the family or you have an increased risk profile, it is possible that your specialist will recommend mammography from a younger age or at a higher frequency.

Bone densitometry

Bone fractures such as hip fractures can cause significant complications in old age and are even a major cause of death in old age. This can fortunately be avoided to a large extent by preventive and therapeutic measures vv 'weakened bone' or osteoporosis. With the help of a bone-sitometry or "bone measurement" we can determine the density of the bones and the degree of osteoporosis (osteopenia to osteoporosis). Thus, your specialist will check whether you are eligible for (reimbursement of) bone-supporting medication to avoid bone fractures in the future.

Scanning fat percentage and distribution in the body

This examination can be used to determine your body fat percentage and fat distribution. This can be a useful tool to evaluate and adjust the effects of your lifestyle changes under the guidance of our dietician.


During a gastroscopy, a camera is used to look inside the stomach under light anesthesia. This allows your specialist to detect stomach or esophageal infections, ulcers or cancers, among other things.


During a colonoscopy, a camera is used to look inside the colon under light anesthesia. Colon cancer is one of the top 3 most common cancers in both men and women and usually starts with small polyps that can be removed before they develop into cancer. The examination can be recommended 3- to 5-yearly from the age of 50 onwards, but your family and personal history, as well as a microscopic examination for the presence of blood in the stool (iFOB test), help determine whether you qualify for a colonoscopy - and at what frequency.


Obesity or colloquially overweight. In obesity, you have too much fatty tissue in the body. If you suffer from obesity or being overweight, then various health problems can surface. We will work with you during the consultation to find a way to combat these excess pounds. We do this in a medically sound way. Because excess weight can cause various health problems. Think of cardiovascular diseases. We will first perform some medical tests, as well as calculate your BMI and see what your options are. A healthy mind in a healthy body is always important.
