Medical Questionnaire & Pre Assessment
Every Client who is interested in purchasing an individual Health Assessment package with Echelon Health will be invited to complete a comprehensive Medical Questionnaire prior to making the decision to proceed, irrespective of whichever package you are considering purchasing . The Medical Questionnaire is then reviewed by one of Doctors and your medical history carefully checked.

In some cases, it may be necessary for the Doctor to speak with you (usually by Phone or Skype) to establish more detailed background and history and, if appropriate, discuss any risk factors. Once the Doctor has confirmed your proposed package is suitable for you (we are careful to ensure each Client has a Health Assessment undertaken that is specific to their individual needs), we will then proceed to confirming your Health Assessment appointment
Blood Tests (40+ Parameters)
We take blood samples which are then analysed for us in one of the leading Blood Analysis laboratories in Harley Street. The comprehensive analysis covers more than 40 parameters including inter alia test for anaemia, kidney and liver function, thyroid gland, predisposition to diabetes and cancer markers.
ECG
An Electrocardiogram (or ECG) is an important test that records the rhythm, rate and electrical activity of your heart. It is completely painless and takes only a few minutes. ECG traces from healthy hearts have a characteristic shape. If the ECG shows a different shape of 'trace' it provides us with a first indicator of a potential problem with your heart.
CT Heart
Our scan of your heart is divided into two main elements. The first, a CT Heart Scan (Calcium Score) examines your overall heart arteries for any calcium deposition, the earliest sign of atheromatous disease (commonly known as 'furring up' of the arteries). The lower your calcium score, the less at risk you are of a future heart event
CT Coronary Angiogram
This is the second part of our Heart Scan and is a more advanced scan that directly visualises the inside of your heart arteries. This determines the exact location and severity of any atheroma; people with significant stenosis of one or more of the heart arteries have a very high chance sooner or later of having a heart attack, but which can be prevented by insertion of a stent The CT angiogram is unique in its ability to also visualise the so called 'soft plaque' which is atheroma that has not yet calcified and which is the most vulnerable to rupturing and causing a heart attack. This is the so called 'widow maker' lesion which cannot be visualised by any other means but classically affects individuals who have few if any risk factors for heart disease and who appear, superficially at least, to be fit and healthy.
CT Aorta
The Aorta is the largest and principal artery in your body. It begins at the top of the left ventricle, the heart's muscular pumping chamber, and extends down to the abdomen with multiple branches throughout its length. Our heart scan examines the beginning of the aorta for any evidence of dilation which could be the early signs of an aneurysm (a bulging or ballooning in a weakened blood vessel wall) and which if untreated can lead to a catastrophic rupture.
CT Chest
With this scan we are looking for evidence of tiny nodules which could be the early signs of lung cancer. CT scanning is the most sensitive means of detecting lung cancers and with our experienced specialist chest radiologists, we have detected cancers as small as 1-2 mm. It is far more sensitive than X-rays which can generally only detect tumours of 10mm in size, and MRI scanning just cannot image the chest at all.
CT Abdomen
Here, we are looking for any signs of abnormalities or tumours in your liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas and adrenal glands. This scan also visualises the rest of the aorta for any abdominal aneurysm.
CT Pelvis
Here, we are looking for any signs of abnormalities or tumours in your kidneys, bladder and lymph glands.
CT Virtual Colonoscopy
This scan is looking for colonic polyps and early indications of possible cancer. Almost all colon cancers develop over a period of 10 - 15 years from tiny polyps which gradually increase in size and eventually turn into a cancer. As with all cancers, waiting until the cancer causes symptoms such as weight loss, bleeding, or obstruction to the colon means that it is likely to have already spread and cure is frequently impossible. However, this long process of conversion means that almost all colon cancers are preventable by undergoing an effective means of screening (such as with a CT virtual colonoscopy) for the polyps and if one is found, then removing it.
CT Bone Density
A CT Bone Density scan is an extremely accurate method of measuring the density of your bones and diagnosing osteoporosis so determining your risk of a future fracture.
MRI Brain
This detailed scan of your brain looks for any indications of tumours or significant abnormalities, including of the sinuses and inner ears.
MRI Carotid Artery Angiogram
We use a CT or MRI Carotid Artery Angiogram to determine whether there is any narrowing of the neck arteries that supply blood to the brain. This would indicate an increased risk of stroke.
MRI Cerebral Artery Angiogram
This scan looks directly at the arteries in your brain to assess whether there has been any narrowing or malformations of them. Evidence of this would indicate an increased risk of stroke or brain haemorrhage.
Ultrasound Neck Arteries
In some assessments, we use Ultrasound as an alternative means of determining whether there is any narrowing of the neck arteries that supply blood to the brain. This would indicate an increased risk of stroke.
Ultrasound Thyroid
An ultrasound of the thyroid is looking for evidence of nodules or tumours.
Ultrasound Testes/Ovaries
This scan is designed to look for any evidence of testicular / ovarian tumours or cysts.
Digital Mammogram (Women only)
The (full field) digital mammogram is the most accurate means of visualising breast lumps or early signs of cancer.
MRI Prostate (Men only)
This, combined with the PSA blood test, is the most accurate means of screening for prostate cancer. One in eight men in the UK will get prostate cancer, mainly affecting men over 50 and with increased risk if there is a family history.
Full Body Mole Screen
We have specially selected The Mole Clinic, an award-winning, dermatologist-led skin lesion clinic to carry out a Full Body Mole Screen for us. Established in 2003, The Mole Clinic leads the UK in skin cancer screening and mole removal (for biopsy & cosmetic reasons). Their specialist nurses and GPs, consultant dermatologists and plastic surgeons deliver high quality clinical care to 40,000 patients every year.

Depending on the package you select from Echelon Health, a specialist nurse from the Mole Clinic will come to our Clinic at 68 Harley Street on the day of your Health Assessment and carry out a Full Body Mole Screen with the objective of identifying any visually atypical moles.

If the nurse considers it appropriate, she will also offer you the opportunity to have one or more Single Mole Scans undertaken on a visually abnormal or new or changing mole. A dermatoscope and a digital camera will be used to record an image 1 - 2 mm beneath the surface of the mole. The image is remotely assessed by a specialist skin doctor, the results of which will be discussed with you by your Echelon Health Physician when you come for the follow up consultation for your Echelon Health Assessment.

EOS CT upright skeleton
This ultra low dose CT scan of the entire skeleton in the standing position enables us to determine whether you have any postural issues or predisposition to spinal disc problems.
Final Consultation
Once all your scans are complete, and the radiologists have analysed the images taken and produced their reports, you will have a comprehensive consultation session with one of our senior physicians to discuss the conclusions arising from your health assessment. This will include a detailed discussion on options for next steps should they be required.
