Title: Ferriscan in Schengen States
Post by: Eagle on February 04, 2016, 01:03:51 PM
Hi friends,
I want to get my ferriscan done but unfortunately it's not available in Pakistan (as per my knowledge).

Would anyone be able to tell me where I can get it done in any of the schengen states and how much it would cost me? I'll be visiting a relative in Austria in the coming months and want to get this scan done as well if possible.

Any help on this will be appreciated.

Cheers!

The current list of Ferriscan locations can be seen at http://www.resonancehealth.com/find-a-centre/ferriscan.html

If Ferriscan isn't possible, liver and heart MRI's can give fairly accurate results.

Thank you, Andy!

I've dropped an email at one of the centers to get more info on the cost. Hopefully it will be affordable for me.

Thanks again for the info.

I was able to contact one of the private practices in Munich that offer Ferriscan. The scan costs 1200 euros. And I think they may also charge taxes on top of that.

If you can get MRI scans locally, I am sure it would cost much less than Ferriscan.

Yes MRI is much more affordable compared to this. But liver MRI for identification of LIC is not available here (as far as I know). I did get an MRI of the heart about a year ago and my score was 10.

So now I just need to get a liver scan done to see how the poor thing is doing.
