Usually offered to the over 35 age group, our Ultimate Check-Up is designed specifically for key people, giving a thorough assessment of current health and potential future risk factors. The Ultimate Check-Up takes 5½ hours and includes x-ray free, focused MRI scans of your brain, heart, central arteries and organs of the abdomen and the pelvis, ultrasound examinations, resting and exercise ECG, spirometry, over 40 different blood tests, urine analysis, eyes and ears testing and one to one consultations with the Preventicum doctors including a same day results consultation.
- One-to-one consultation with a Preventicum doctor lasting approximately 50 minutes
- Detailed physical examination with a Preventicum doctor
- Vital observations
height, weight, BMI, resting heart rate, blood pressure
- Over 40 blood tests and urine analysis
We will perform extensive blood and urine analysis in order to check the most important parameters. Over 40 different tests are measured on the blood sample, including a full cholesterol profile, liver tests, kidney tests, a full blood count and PSA on men over 50.
- Hearing test
- Tonometry (Glaucoma/eye test)
- Resting and exercise ECG
ECG is used in diagnosing some heart abnormalities. Exercise ECG can help to show if there is a possibility of significant coronary artery disease.
- Spirometry (lung function test)
The spirometry test is used to determine lung function and to detect lung disease.
- Ultrasound examinations
We scan the carotid arteries, abdominal aorta, liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, urinary bladder, uterus and ovaries in women and the prostate in men.
- Body Composition Analyser
The InBody 720 is now forms part of all our Check-Ups and, provides very accurate in-depth results in less than 2 minutes. Using 6 frequencies and analysing 5 body segments, we can obtain a detailed, highly accurate map of body composition using 30 impedance measurements. Visceral fat which is the fat around the central organs can also be measured and this is the most medically relevant type of fat as it can increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease. The Oedema Index is also measured which shows water balance and can help in determining some diseases. Lastly, dual segmental muscle graphs show the tissue composition and symmetry of each body segment (upper/lower body and limbs). The feedback we have received since introducing the analyser has been excellent and it is proving very popular as it provides instant feedback to our clients with accurate results that can be trended over time.
