    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.

    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.
