Total Body Screening

Total Body screening

Because prevention is always better than cure

Our total body screening assessment covers the following areas for detailed examination:

Skull and brain (MRI Scan)

  • The possible risks of cerebral infarct/ brain haemorrhage
  • Benign and malignant tumours
  • Infections
  • Obstructions or changes in the forms of the major blood vessels

Heart assessment with an exercise treadmill ECG (electrocardiogram) – looking for signs of ischaemic heart disease (angina)

  • Examination of the lungs with a ‘peak flow examination’ and spirometry, including:
  • FEV1
  • FVC
  • FEV1/FVC ratio
  • PEFR

Upper abdomen (MRI Scan)

  • Description of the organs of the upper abdomen
  • Tracing/exclusion of tumours in the liver, pancreas, kidneys and the gallbladder
  • Check up for gallstones
  • Check up of the spleen
  • Tracing of cysts
  • Checking and recognition of enlargements of the lymph glands
  • The condition of the aorta
  • Midsection of the spinal column

Male/female pelvis (lower abdomen) (MRI Scan)

  • Description of the organs of the lower abdomen such as the bladder, prostate, the uterus and the ovaries (gynaecological system)
  • The tracing of tumours, external changes and a prolapsed bladder
  • Tracing of cysts; recognition of enlargement of the lymph glands
  • The condition of the aorta
  • Control of the lower spinal column, the pelvis and hip joints

MRI Screenings

  • 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 – vessels, signs of atrophy (ageing), any signs of cysts, aneurysms or tumours.
  • Upper abdomen – including liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, aorta, blood vessels
  • Male/female pelvis (lower abdomen).
