Using state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technology such as MRI Scans, CT Scans, and PET scans, we can help detect silent life threatening abnormalities that if identified in early stages, can save your life. Total body scans have long been a resource for patients at high risk of certain diseases and for those who want extra peace of mind about their health status. However, these tests relied on computed tomography imaging (CT scanning), and that meant exposure to radiation.
You should consider getting an annual full-body screening if you fit one or more of the following criteria:
-You have a family history of coronary artery disease.
-You have a family history of aneurysms.
-You are overweight.
-You are sedentary.
-You are 45+ years old.
-You have high cholesterol, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
-You smoke at least one pack of cigarettes per day for a minimum of 10 years. Even if you do not smoke anymore, you still have a higher lung cancer risk.
Mr. HealthBuddy encourages you to get your annual screening appointments back on the books. The hospitals that we have tied up with take considerable measures to ensure safety for patients and staff, including thorough cleanings between exams, social distancing in waiting rooms, and providing MRI-compatible masks that can be worn during the scan.
