At Echelon Health, we believe firmly in prevention being far better than cure. That's because sometimes we don't get the opportunity for a cure. Coronary Heart Disease can strike at any moment, unannounced, and in people who, superficially at least, show no signs of any illness or have any of the classical risk factors. Most cancers, once they develop and cause symptoms, have far lower survival rates compared to if they are caught at the earliest stages of development.
The Body Map
Our fully interactive Body Map (Male and Female) enables you to look in detail at every principal disease we can detect for as well as the scans and assessments we use to undertake the detection. Just click on any of the labels to open a new box that contains all the detail you need.
Catching things early
Catching disease in its formative stages offers us a far better chance of fixing the problem than if we leave it too late. Often, once diseases present themselves, it is sadly too late to do anything about them other than palliation.
What we can detect
Our Platinum Health Assessment can spot many of the diseases most likely to lead to premature death including big killers such as Cancers, Diseases of the Circulatory system, Diseases of the Respiratory system and Diseases of the Digestive system.
The facts about radiation
Some of our scans are carried out using an advanced CT scanner that delivers a very low dose of gamma radiation. In fact, some diseases can only be comprehensively detected using CT scanners. It is always important to be confident that the benefits outweigh the risks.
The view from an expert
We asked Dr David J. Wilson, Consultant Musculoskeletal Interventional Radiologist at St Luke's Radiology Oxford and Past President, The British Institute of Radiology, for his professional opinion on the Preventative Health Assessments carried out by Echelon Health.
