Tailored to Your Health
Everyone is different. One size does not fit all. That is why we look at every client on a case by case basis. No-one is able to undertake a Health Assessment at Echelon Health unless a qualified and very experienced physician has given the go ahead. We do not use statistical models or probability assessments that are favoured by many other companies and we do not guess or hypothesise. Instead, we carry out scans using the best machines operated by the best radiographers, producing images interpreted by the leading radiologists and then our medical team, led by one of the most experienced and respected physicians in Harley Street.
This results in a truly bespoke service that looks deep inside of you (and only you). You can be assured that with Echelon Health, we take the business of finding out your real state of health, carefully and safely and as seriously as we would do our own. Every time.
Combined Scanning Technologies
We recognise that an appropriate and comprehensive medical check-up requires the use of an entire suite of scanning modalities. Typically these are CT (Computed Tomography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and Ultrasound. No single modality can screen for every disease. Some clinics advise they do not carry out CT scans because of the risks posed by radiation, however whilst it is true that CT scanning involves very low doses of X-ray radiation, the amounts involved with the state-of-the-art scanners we use are really very low. As a comparative, a CT Coronary Angiogram, is similar to the natural background radiation you are exposed to from spending just a few weeks in Cornwall.
This is important because if you want to scan properly for the most likely causes of premature death, then CT is essential. The common diseases which can ONLY be comprehensively and effectively detected by CT scanning (as opposed to MRI) are:
- coronary heart disease
- lung cancer
- colon cancer
which, together, account for most causes of early death.
Notwithstanding the fact that the radiation doses are low, we equally accept that there are risks and however small we think they may be, it is vital they are explained to you so that you can be comfortable with the medical Assessment we are proposing to carry out. That is why we have put plenty of information on this website, why we provide you with useful information sheets ahead of, and during, your visit and why our team are on hand whenever you want to discuss what is involved as well as explain the benefits and risks.
