MRI checkup packages are becoming very popular in the UK and other European countries, and while some doctors would only prescribe MRI as a test for further investigation of an issue, it is a fact that MRI testing is becoming an attractive option for patients who simply want a preventive diagnostic checkup done.
Vilnius, Lithuania -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/01/2016 -- Full body MRI checkup is available in many private hospitals and is quickly becoming a type of health checkup that so many patients enquire about. Furthermore, UK patients are happily booking flights and taking a day off at work in order to go to a hospital abroad and have this health checkup performed at a much more attractive price.
The important aspect to keep in mind is that while the package is called "Full Body MRI", it is actually focusing on the most important parts of the body, and does not include each and every single position of MRI testing available technically.
The "Standard" MRI package usually includes: Brain MRI (to detect any brain tumors, abnormalities, arteries, aneurysms, including neck), Upper and lower abdomen MRI (checking gall bladder, liver, kidney, spleen, pancreas abnormalities/abstructions, abdominal aorta, enlarged lymph nodes, any patologies, cysts and/or abnormalities. Cardio tests and blood tests are also usually included. Once the tests are done, a follow up meeting with a GP doctor (sometimes also a cardiologist, if needed) is necessary to discuss the results with the patient, review the diagnosis (if any) and recommend further treatment options if necessary.
"The most attractive aspect about the full body MRI checkups is that patients, especially those coming from the UK, spend 2-3 times less at Kardiolita compared to what they would need to spend in the UK, and it's really fast: they arrive on a Thursday evening, we start testing on a Friday morning, and Saturday morning they can leave home" – says Andrius Jonutis, General Deputy Manager at Kardiolita Private General Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.
