Our total body screening assessment uses state-of-the-art MRI imaging that is non-radiating (as opposed to CT scanning). Our 3-part private MRI scan of the body includes the brain, abdomen and pelvis, and is complemented by an exercise treadmill ECG test (for angina), lung function assessment and a comprehensive laboratory testing of blood, stool and urine.
Our private MRI scans are done locally in Nottingham at our private MRI unit, and the results are typically available within 2 – 3 days, having been reported by the various Consultant radiologists specialising in each area assessed. Our private MRI scan in the UK will include detailed examinations of the: Brain Upper abdomen – including liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, aorta, blood vessels Male/female pelvis (lower abdomen).
