Echelon Health MRI Scanning Room

What we can detect

An Echelon Health Assessment is a baseline from which you can then determine whether you need to take action now and whether you need to do anything different in the future. Many health assessment companies offer future wellness plans and lifestyle strategies. They sound good, but without the baseline of exactly what's going on right now, it's not enough.

In the tables below, we show you many of the diseases our Platinum Health Assessment can spot in those men and women for whom a Platinum Health Assessment is appropriate. We have included the big killers such as Cancers, Diseases of the Circulatory system, Diseases of the Respiratory system and Diseases of the Digestive system and highlighted the principal diseases within each that we can detect. Some of these things we find through our comprehensive blood test, some through our various scans and some through the consultation and examination you will have with one of our Physicians.

In 2017, just over 80,000 men and women aged 50 - 69 died from diseases that could have been detected by one of our Platinum Health Assessments. Just think how many could be still here today.
