Total Body Scan from Prescan ®

The Total Body Scan  allows you to gain insight into your health. During this examination the vital organs and blood vessels are examined. In order to obtain the best possible picture of your body, we include the Preventive Cardio Package with our Total body Scan. We recommend supplementing the Total Body Scan with the Complete
Laboratory Test to examine blood, urine and other factors that may play a role in your personal situation. Scans alone provide extensive detail about the internal structures, but not about the functioning of organs, such as the heart, liver, thyroid glands and the kidneys.

When initially contacting Prescan, you will have a consultation with one of our staff. They will complete a Medical history intake form with you for the doctors who will conduct the examinations, which will assist in identifying and assessing health risk factors. Furthermore, a GP will discuss your concerns or any symptoms you may be experiencing, before the examinations start. A team of medical specialists working for Highgate Hospital will carry out the examinations. This team is made up of a radiologist, cardiologist, a general practitioner and a laboratory physician. All results are analysed by these specialists and  discussed with you the following week during the GP follow up consultation either by telephone or face to face.

A day at Prescan

 

Welcome

On the day of your examination our friendly team will greet you. Before the examination takes place, a GP will guide you through the MRI scanning process, describing the areas being scanned, how they will be scanned and escorting you to a private room, with a locker to change and safely store your belongings. A dedicated referral has already been composed
at this point, using the medical history obtained during 
the booking process. This is to ensure the radiologists are aware of relevant signs, symptoms and medical history before reporting on your images.

 

MRI Scans

The MRI will be conducted, creating detailed slice-by-slice images of the skull and brains, arteries, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, aorta, bladder, prostate (male), ovaries/uterus (female), pelvis, hip joint and lumbar vertebra. Over 800 images will be taken and examined by a radiologist.

 

Cardio examination

The Total Body Scan of Prescan will include an extensive cardiac examination, since the heart is the engine of the body. After a consultation with the physiologist, you will have an ECHO. This test looks at your heart muscle, heart valves, and pump function.
In accordance you will have an ECG, which will measure the electrical activity of the heart rate and rhythm. Lastly, a lung function test will be carried out, which will test your peak flow.

 

 

Conclusion and Results

The team of specialists will be reporting on your scans and be reassured that your scans are in the best of hands.
Afterwards you can either choose to book a GP face to face follow up consultation or a GP telephone consultation, which will be for the following week. The written reports will be received within 7 working days after the examination.


Here at Prescan, we pride ourselves on making your experience as pleasant and as comfortable as possible ensuring you are at ease every step of the way.
