Our Full Body MRI
While medical centers across the country have magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, machines, the Health Nucleus uses the state-of-the art standard for MRI imaging.
In traditional medical care, it’s nearly impossible to get access to a full body MRI without a significant medical reason. If you injure your knee, only your knee will be scanned in a standard medical MRI.
At the Health Nucleus, your assessment includes a full body MRI set to our unique standards.
Our MRI accomplishes three key examinations:
- Cancer detection – our whole body MRI exam scans for tumors of the head, neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis. We have capabilities to detect most solid organ tumors, including kidney, prostate, pancreas, uterine, ovarian, lung, brain just to name a few. Other tumors, such as colon and breast cancer, are not currently screened for in our exam.
- Body Composition – Precisely quantifies fat and muscle composition in order to better understand risk factors for metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
- Brain structure and vasculature – Scans for tumors of the brain as well as imaging signs of vascular and Alzheimer’s dementia. Our non-contrast brain angiogram also examines the blood vessels of the brain to detect evidence of vessel narrowing and aneurysms and other vascular malformations.
Protocols Not Available Anywhere Else
Without the use of contrast media that leaves many feeling nauseous, but whose purpose is to illuminate differences in the body, our post-processing analysis makes a HN assessment truly unique.
Our proprietary software uncovers cancer, neurological, metabolic and cardiovascular concerns at their earliest stages when they can be addressed.
At our LaJolla facility, our MRI techs take pride in ensuring your comfort and calmness while in our MRI by offering guided meditation, aroma therapy, and audio-visual distraction should you wish.
