Below we will list the departments and units that form part of Vall d’Hebron Hospital and the main diseases that we treat. We will also make recommendations based on advice backed up by scientific evidence that has been shown to be effective in guaranteeing well-being and quality of life.

Nuclear magnetic resonance is a test that allows us to take anatomical, functional images of the human body to diagnose and assess a person's state of health. There are several diseases that require such images, such as trauma, brain and bone marrow explorations and cancer, among others.

To have the test done, patients lie down on a stretcher that is inserted into the magnetic resonance device. Usually it lasts between 20 and 40 minutes, during which a nurse or technical staff attend to the patient and indicate what position they need to lie in so that nothing interferes with the images.
