We use precautionary measures in our daily life e.g. we regularly service our cars and heating systems in order to keep them in tip top condition so why not do the same with the most important asset we have – our own body.
Many illnesses such as cancer and heart disease are not discovered before it is too late. A preventative examination makes it possible to detect abnormalities and diseases at an early stage, significantly increasing survival rates and chances for full recovery.
The majority of our patients are given the reassurance and peace of mind that they are looking for. In other patients, however, we may find a condition at its early stage and are then able to provide their doctor with important and valuable information, so that correct treatment can be initiated.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) uses a strong magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of cross-sections of the body millimetre by millimetre. The scan will take approx 40 minutes per area and approx 1 hour 45mins for the total body scan.
The procedure is a painless experience and the advantage of MRI is that no harmful radiation is used, which means almost any part of the body can be scanned.
The most precise and least stressful way of detecting tumours, heart defects and other serious conditions is by using MRI Scanning.
Ultrasound is a non-evasive scan which uses high frequency soundwaves of the inside of your body. During your private Ultrasound scan, a probe is passed over the skin and this emits sound waves. These sound waves bounce off your organs and send a signal via the microphone to the computer which then displays the sound as an image.

An X-ray is a painless procedure used to produce images of inside the body. It’s a fast and effective way to look at the bones and can be used to detect a range of different conditions. X-rays are carried out by trained professionals, usually radiographers but can sometimes be other healthcare professionals such as dentists.
X-rays are mainly used to look at bones and joints, however, they can also be used to investigate problems affecting soft tissues (internal organs). Common problems that can be detected by an X-ray include: bone fractures and breaks, scoliosis, non-cancerous and cancerous bone tumours, lung problems such as lung cancer and pneumonia, and swollowing problems (dysphagia), heart problems (heart failure) and breast cancer.
