    MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI SCANS)

    MRI scans of your brain, heart, central arteries and organs of the abdomen and the pelvis will be performed. Our two, state-of-the-art MRI scanners are equipped with ‘in-bore’ technology where you have a choice of music or film to create an immersive audio-video visual experience. Paired with ambient lighting and reduced noise, anxiety, and claustrophobia are greatly reduced.

    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.

    Exercise stress echocardiogram

    Preventicum are one of the first UK clinics to introduce this test as part of a screening health assessment. Stress echocardiography uses specialist ultrasound imaging combined with the exercise stress test to show how well your heart muscle is working to pump blood to your body, and it is most often used to detect a decrease in blood flow to the heart from narrowing of the coronary arteries. The test assesses heart function and structure, and can diagnose underlying heart disease.

    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 45 BLOOD TESTS AND URINE ANALYSIS

    We will perform extensive blood and urine analysis to check the most important parameters. Over 50 different tests are measured on the blood sample, including a full cholesterol profile, liver tests, kidney tests, a full blood count, thyroid function tests, Hba1c (diabetes test), and PSA on men over 50.

    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.
