    MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI SCANS)

    MRI scans of your brain, heart, central arteries and organs of the abdomen and the pelvis as well as a whole spinal scan including your cervical, thoracic and lumber spine. Our two, state-of-the-art MRI scanners are equipped with ‘in-bore’ technology, ambient lighting and a choice of music or film to create an immersive audio video visual experience.

    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.

    VO2 MAX TEST

    Cardiopulmonary exercise testing, also known as VO2max, is a measure of aerobic, cardiac fitness and endurance capacity.
    *Please note that during COVID-19 restrictions, this aerosol generating test is not being offered. You may book to return for this at a later date, or we will refund you the cost for this test.

    Pure Sports musculoskeletal movement screen and strength & conditioning coaching

    A consultation and movement screen with a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist at Pure Sports (on-site) to determine injuries, exercise history and gait analysis. A sports coach will then take you through an in-depth strength assessment using a mix of gym equipment, clinical tests, and hand-held strength testing for specific muscle groups.

     

     

    RESTING ECG

    ECG is used to diagnose electrical heart abnormalities and can help to show if there is the possibility of significant coronary artery disease.

    SPIROMETRY

    The spirometry test is used to determine lung function and to help to detect lung disease.

    BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSER

    The InBody 720 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 currently 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). Highly accurate results can be trended with subsequent visits.

    VITAL OBSERVATIONS

    Height, weight, BMI, resting heart rate, blood pressure

    OVER 50 BLOOD TESTS AND URINE ANALYSIS

    Including a full blood count, comprehensive cholesterol profile, liver and kidney function tests, bone profile, iron studies, inflammatory markers, thyroid function, HbA1c (diabetes test), vitamin and mineral profile including vitamin D, and PSA on men over 50 years.

    HEARING TEST

    A hearing test (audiogram) provides a measurement of the sensitivity of a person’s hearing across the full range of speech. The test will measure the quietest sound that can be heard at several points across the speech range.

    We ask you to listen to different sounds through headphones and press a button each time you hear something.

    TONOMETRY (GLAUCOMA/EYE TEST)

    Tonometry is a  test that checks the pressure inside your eyes (intra ocular pressure), and is important for us to assess if you are at risk of glaucoma. Early screening can help protect your eyesight and slow down vision loss.

    We use a non contact tonometer which delivers a puff of air to measure your eye pressure. If you wear contact lenses we will ask you to remove these for the test.

    Same Day Results

    Your progress is relayed to your Preventicum doctor throughout your assessment, meaning that all your results, including your detailed bloods will be discussed in a concluding doctor consultation on the same day. A Preventicum Radiologist will also take you on a virtual tour of your MRI images on a big screen, including a video of your beating heart. 

    Doctor Led Consulation

    Dedicated, one-to-one doctor time allows us to develop a preventive strategy specifically tailored to your lifestyle. You will also leave with a  bespoke lifestyle prescription covering the key areas of nutrition, sleep, exercise, relaxation and environment, to help you optimise your health and wellbeing.

    CASE STUDY - Prostate Cancer

    ‘A company chairman in his late 50’s came for his regular Preventicum Ultimate Assessment after a gap of five years. He had no symptoms or health issues but his PSA (prostate specific antigen) was slightly higher than expected… further testing including prostate biopsies revealed localised cancer of the prostate.’

    CASE STUDY - Large abdominal aortic aneurysm

    ‘A fit and healthy orthopaedic surgeon in his late 60’s visited for an Ultimate Assessment… A large abdominal aortic aneurysm was revealed. He was referred immediately to see a vascular surgeon who performed an urgent repair through the main artery of his leg. Normally, large aortic aneurysms remain undetected with sudden death being the first symptom.’

    CANCER 30 GENE PANEL

    Overview

    All of us have a 1 in 2 lifetime risk of cancer, but some common cancers – breast, melanoma, pancreatic, prostate and ovarian – are known to occur more frequently in families, passing from one generation to the next. This is because certain gene mutations can be inherited.

    Perhaps the most commonly talked about are the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes, where mutations can indicate increased risk of developing breast, melanoma, pancreatic, prostate and ovarian cancers.

    The 30-gene Pan Cancer Panel test from Everything Genetic, examines BRCA1 and BRCA2 and an additional 28 genes which can also indicate risk in the areas of uterine, colorectal (bowel) and stomach cancer.

    Why have this test?

    Knowing you have a genetic mutation enables you to make sure you have the appropriate regular screening and investigations. Many mutations are known to be hereditary; if you have a mutation, there is a 50% chance that your siblings and children will have it too.

    What genes are tested?

    Genes APC, ATM, BAP1, BARD1, BMPR1A, BRCA1, BRCA2, BRIP1, CDH1, CDK4*, CDKN2A(p14ARF), CDKN2A(p16INK4a), CHEK2, EPCAM*, GREM1*, MITF*, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, MUTYH, NBN, PALB2, PMS2*, POLD1*, POLE*, PTEN, RAD51C, RAD51D, SMAD4, STK11, TP53.

    What does the test involve?

    This test is a simple saliva test that you can do in the clinic on the day of your assessment, or in your own home of you prefer – we do not need a blood sample. If you choose to add this test after your health assessment, you will receive a kit in the post with clear instructions on taking your sample, together with all the paperwork you need to sign and post to Everything Genetic.

    How long does reporting take?

    Once your sample is received at the US laboratory, it will be sequenced, and your genes analysed. A report is then generated, usually within 5 weeks of the laboratory receiving your sample.

    How will I get my results?

    Your Preventicum doctor will explain the process in your consultation, and you will also have a counselling session with a consultant (usually the day after your Preventicum assessment) so you understand this fully before consenting for the test.

    Once your genes have been analysed, you will be sent your results from Preventicum. If there are any positive findings you will also be contacted by a Consultant Geneticist to discuss these, the implications, and next steps. If the results are negative but you still wish to discuss these further, a consultation can be arranged at no extra charge.

    Discussing your results with a geneticist and Preventicum doctor will help you to:

    • Understand your risks
    • Monitor your health
    • Consider your lifestyle or diet
    • Protect your family
