What’s included in a private health screening and MRI scan?

An overview of the various health assessments offered by The Edinburgh Clinic, popular amongst private patients in Edinburgh and the Lothians around the turn of the year.

As we approach the end of one year and the beginning of the next, thoughts turn to renewal and starting off the New Year as well as possible.

Whether it’s one of your New Year resolutions, a wish to recover from the occasional excesses of the Christmas period, or simply a desire to make sure that your health is ready for the twelve months to come, The Edinburgh Clinic can help.

We offer a range of health screening services to assess the condition of your body and overall health, identify areas where more attention may be needed and set you on the path to enjoying the New Year with peace of mind and a plan for taking care of yourself.

ScanPlus

Our most comprehensive screening service is ScanPlus, in which you will spend significant time with different members of our team, including a nurse, a private GP and our imaging team.

ScanPlus includes:
  • a general health assessment with a full examination, height, weight, body composition and urinalysis
  • checks on your respiratory system including peak expiratory flow, oxygen saturation and Spirometry where peak flow suggests it necessary
  • cardiovascular testing, to examine blood pressure and check for potential heart disease or diabetes
  • a range of blood checks covering kidney, liver and thyroid function, plus checks for cholesterol and glucose levels and screening for prostate cancer or ovarian cancer.
  • Examination of breasts or external genitalia
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of head and torso

There is also the option to add additional screening services such as a full assessment of heart structure and function, full body molescreen, a DEXA scan (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry) to assess bone density and check for Osteoporosis, and an eye assessment.

The Edinburgh Clinic also offers more specific screening services for those for whom ScanPlus may be more than is required. These include:

  • Classic Health Assessment – featuring a medical examination, health and weight assessment, respiratory checks, urinalysis and blood testing for cholesterol and diabetes.
  • Well Man Assessment – featuring the same checks as the Classic Assessment, plus further blood testing, assessment for diabetes and heart disease, thyroid function checks, external genitalia examination, review of testicular self-examination, screening for prostate cancer and more.
  • Well Woman Assessment – featuring the same checks as the Classic Assessment, plus further blood testing, assessment for diabetes and heart disease, thyroid function checks, breast examination, review of breast self-examination, screening for Ovarian Cancer, and an optional Cervical Smear.

 

Corporate Screening Services

For businesses wishing to maintain their effectiveness and productivity, a healthy workforce is vital, and more and more businesses are supporting their employees through benefit packages which include healthcare. For many though, this tends to mean treatment once illnesses manifest themselves.

That’s why as well as being on hand to help treat health conditions, The Edinburgh Clinic also offers a package of advance screening services to try to catch potential issues early. Doing so can help minimise health risks for team members as well as cutting down on potential time lost to sick leave.

Our services are accredited by all major private health insurers and can be utilised by organisations whether or not they offer private health insurance to their staff.

With the New Year almost upon us, this is a great time to put your plans in order and start the new calendar with a solid understanding of your health situation and a plan for tackling any issues which may lie undiscovered.

While nobody wants to discover that they may have a health issue, you’ll find much greater assurance and peace of mind in knowing that any problems that may exist are recognised and to be dealt with as early as possible.
