TO REDUCE MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY
FROM PREDICTION TO PREVENTION
European Prevention Center (EPC)
PROF. DR. UWE NIXDORFF
Internist, Cardiologist & Sports Medicine Specialist
The EUROPEAN PREVENTION CENTER (EPC) was founded in 2005 by Prof. Nixdorff, internist, cardiologist and sports physician, as a spin-off from the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU). The clinical and research activities, also actively contributed to national and international professional societies (such as the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), here also on the Executive Board of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology (EACP)) were transformed in a protagonistic manner from conventional curative medicine to preventive medicine. For this purpose, the work "Check-Up Medicine- Prevention of Diseases - Evidence-Based Recommendations for Practice," Thieme Verlag, which is now considered a textbook, was published. It is based on a systematic risk stratification (collecting the significant risk factors as the cause of diseases) a functional and imaging early detection. For this purpose, the arsenal of current technical possibilities in the field of ultrasound, magnetic resonance and computer tomography is used. The result is a personalized basis for detailed consultation of lifestyle-modifying measures that are prognostically relevant. The EPC not only wants to give its customers more years, but also more life to the years.
A currently ongoing audit is being conducted with the objective of reaccreditation.

NEWS FROM THE EPC
In addition to our expert medical care, art exhibitions, national and international networking events on the topic of preventive medicine, and cardiology conferences are held at regular intervals on our premises. You can find these under Events.
The EPC is primarily clinically based. In this algorithm, the basis is the personalized risk stratification, which then defines the functional and imaging early detection. For this purpose, there is a fruitful cooperation with the center's internal radiology radios, which has the latest equipment technology for whole-body magnetic resonance imaging and angiography (GK-MRI and MRA), multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT) (cardiac CT with calcium scoring (CACS) and non-invasive coronary angiography (CCTA)) as well as myocardial scintigraphy.
Our key account manager is always available to answer your questions regarding your framework contract, check-ups and new contracts.
