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).
