This is a screening tool to provide an insight into your current health status underneath the skin. It images the body’s vital organs and shows some functions such as the major blood vessels in the brain. In a full body screening, various major organs are imaged to detect any disease. MRI Scan (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure using a strong
magnetic field without ionizing radiation that makes it completely safe. It forms pictures of the body’s organs and diagnose disease.
1. Concerns about your health
2. Inexplicable symptoms affecting daily life
3. Congenital or hereditary health issues unknown to you
4. Infections and soft-tissue concerns in the pelvic or abdominal region
If a person is above 18, a full-body scan is an important screening tool to ensure awareness of underlying health issues. The full-body scan can detect neurological, musculoskeletal, cancer, and general abdominal and pelvic issues.
Head and neck: To image the brain for possible tumours, stroke, multiple sclerosis, dementia,
haemorrhages, brain aneurysms, etc.
Spine: To detect spinal tumours that grow off nerve sheaths, fractures, cord compressions,
slipped or herniated discs.
Chest: To detect any gross abnormalities in this region.
Abdomen: detect abnormalities in the pancreas, liver, kidneys, adrenal glands, gall bladder,
aorta, tumours, and abnormal fluid collections.
Pelvis: detect abnormalities within the bladder, gynaecological issues in women, and prostate in men.
Please note that this will be a non-contrast scan.
A full-body scan has certain limitations as do all other diagnostic tools and
procedures - hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, or knees, ankles, feet, hips, lungs and the heart are not included although some images will include humeral and femoral heads, and a few images of the heart through images of the chest. For the lungs, a CT scan is the best option. Please also note that these scans are done for screening purpose and if your clinician has referred you for a specific scan then it may be appropriate to do a separate scan. Please discuss with your clinician if you are unsure.

The entire set of scans will be completed on the same appointed day at the appointed site.
The MRI scanner is open at both ends and you will be gently slid into the central tunnel head or feet first, depending on the areas being scanned.
You will be able to contact and speak to the radiographers throughout the procedure.
You will also be provided with ear protection.
After the examination the images are transferred electronically to a UK based, GMC registered consultant radiologists who will provide a detailed report on the images, their opinion, and any recommendations for further necessary action.
You will also get the scan images through an email link. You can download, view or forward the images through that link
The MRI scanners are operated by HCPC registered and fully qualified radiographers with a wealth of experience and knowledge.
