Expert Radiology in the Rhine-Main Area

The detection of illnesses and injuries using imaging methods is one of the most important pillars of modern medicine. As a physician and physicist, I have spent my life working actively on the technical development and clinical application of diagnostic imaging techniques, including with Nobel Prize winner Sir Peter Mansfield, in basic research at Siemens, at Harvard Medical School and as head of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at Großhadern Hospital.

My many years of medical experience and my technical understanding enable me today to use methods such as magnetic resonance imaging and computer tomography (CT) optimally for the precise detection of diseases in patients.

At the Institute für Bildgebende Diagnostik, I stand behind this with my name.

Prof. Dr. mult. Michael K. Stehling

University Professor of Radiology, Jerusalem University (AQU),
fmr. Fellow Harvard Medical School and Associate Professor of Radiology, Boston University

Back pain? MRI shows why

Pain in joints and the spine is widespread. They are linked to our lifestyle, lack of exercise and increasing life expectancy. Countermeasures can be taken if detected at an early stage. However, precise diagnostics are necessary to identify the causes of joint and back pain.

Lung cancer screening for smokers

If you have an increased risk of lung cancer, you should have regular check-ups. The low-dose CT scan can help to detect lung cancer at its earliest and most curable stage. The best hope of curing lung cancer is to detect it as early as possible. The Early Lung Cancer Action Program (ELCAP research) has shown that an annual CT scan can find 85% of lung cancers at their earliest, most curable stage (Lancet 1999; 354:99-105).

An affair of the heart – Cardio-CT

Risk factors such as obesity, high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure are clearly associated with an increased risk of heart attack – as the Framingham study has shown. This applies to population groups. But not necessarily in individual cases. It was already clear around 20 years ago that the detection of deposits (atherosclerotic plaques) in the coronary arteries can predict an individual’s risk of heart attack – better than any other parameter. Cardio-CT provides precise information about deposits in your coronary arteries. With the help of the so-called calcification or Agatston score, the deposits can be quantified and the risk of suffering a heart attack within the next few years can be predicted relatively precisely – and whether preventive therapy needs to be started.

Colorectal cancer screening without an endoscope – virtual endoscopy

Previously, the colon was examined with an endoscope every 5 years to find polyps, which are benign changes in the colon wall that can develop into colon cancer. However, only a few, around 5% of all patients examined, exhibit these changes. Classic endoscopy (fiberoptic video endoscopy) has the disadvantage that the colon is often difficult to navigate with the endoscope, especially in older people. The ascending colon is often not reached, or only with difficulty. Polyps and even larger tumors can thus be overlooked. There is also a risk of perforation of the bowel wall if the endoscope is difficult to navigate. Video endoscopy can also only show changes in the interior of the intestine (lumen). Changes in the intestinal wall or outside, in the abdominal cavity, remain hidden from view through the endoscope.

Modern prostate cancer screening – prostate MRI

Prostate cancer is common: around one in five men will develop prostate cancer in the course of their life. While prostate palpation by the doctor’s finger is still the only examination paid for by German health insurance companies – although there is not a single study showing that DRU (digital rectal examination) has ever saved a single life – modern diagnostics have evolved. Prostate MRI (magnetic resonance imaging – MRI) detects prostate cancer with over 90% certainty – or excludes relevant cancer foci. Many experts are now of the opinion that an MRI of the prostate should be carried out first if a prostate carcinoma is suspected.

MR mammography – the better breast cancer screening

Breast cancer is a potentially fatal disease that affects 20% of all women in their lifetime. Breast cancer prevention and breast cancer screening, measures that are intended to save lives through early detection, are therefore the logical consequence. What most women and many doctors do not know: The established preventive and screening examinations with traditional mammography are largely useless. This means that women who take part in mammography screening die of breast cancer just as often and just as quickly as women who do not take part in mammography screening. Some experts are convinced that mammography screening causes more harm than good due to the unavoidable radiation exposure and false positive findings as well as subsequent biopsies. This is why countries such as Switzerland have now discontinued traditional mammography screening.

Satisfied patients

Trail running is my passion. After long runs, I had been suffering from pain in my right knee for years and had been running from one expert to another. Several MRI scans showed a tear in the medial meniscus. I was unanimously told that it would not get better without surgery.

On the advice of a friend, I then turned to Prof. Stehling. He looked at my MRI images and asked me in detail about my complaints. He noticed that my MRI images had been taken without contrast medium. He was also the first person to notice that my knee didn’t get thick at all when I put weight on it. Special MRI scans were then taken in his X-ray institute which showed that the meniscus tear could not be the cause of the pain. The problem was in the tendon of the kneecap, which was inflamed – this could be seen clearly by the contrast medium. Prof. Stehling treated me with local injections and recommended extensive stretching. The pain is completely gone today. Without surgery. I have often recommended the professor to others.

Klaus P.

Modern medicine at the highest level. Thank you, Prof. Dr. Stehling. I should have come to you straight away.

Dr. Klaus – Peter H.

I regularly went for mammography screening without anything being found. My friend then told me that breast cancer screening with MRI is better. A small carcinoma was then found. As it was still at an early stage, it could be completely removed and I am now cured. I recommend them to others.

Veronika S.

As a health insurance patient, I have to wait weeks for appointments with the radiologist, if I get one at all. That’s why I went to Prof. Stehling. Unfortunately, I had to pay for the examination myself because the practice does not bill the [gesetzlichen] health insurance company, but I got an appointment straight away and the doctor explained everything to me in detail. My orthopedist says that the images are also much better. That should be the case everywhere.

Helga B.

For years I had colonoscopies and my doctor always assured me that everything was fine. Until I developed persistent pain in my lower abdomen after the last endoscopy. It would go away and I was advised to be patient. I then contacted Prof. Stehling, who immediately advised me to have an MRI of the abdomen: it could be an intestinal perforation or a hemorrhage. The examination was carried out on the same day. A 20 cm intestinal tumor was discovered that had been overlooked for years. Prof. Stehling and his team immediately arranged an appointment for me with the leading surgeon for colon cancer, who removed the tumor without any problems. I am now cured without metastases. Prof. Stehling saved my life.

Christiane H.

Absolutely top diagnostics and the best advice I have ever received. Prof. Stehling and his team take their time and explain everything in detail. I have never experienced this anywhere else. And I have private insurance. For the first time, I understood what prostate cancer is really about.

Walker K.

Prof. Stehling not only found the causes of my pain, but also recommended a real specialist who treated me successfully. I had pain radiating from my neck into my left arm and even into my fingers. This was often associated with headaches. After many injections and physiotherapy, X-rays were taken and then finally an MRI. Allegedly it was not visible. Finally, my doctor recommended Prof. Stehling to me. He would investigate this more thoroughly than others. At his institute, special MRI scans of the spine were taken, on which the nerve endings can be seen particularly well. It turned out that a nerve had been irritated at a narrow point in the spinal column. He showed me the images and it was clear to see that it was not a slipped disc, but was caused by wear and tear of the small vertebral body joints. In the meantime I have had endoscopic surgery and am completely symptom-free again. Thanks to Prof. Stehling’s cutting-edge diagnostics.
