Advanced Cancer Screening

Our Advanced Cancer Screening uses an innovative new method of MRI scanning known as Whole Body-Diffusion Weighted Imaging (WB-DWI).

Non-invasive screen

This non-invasive technique has been developed through years of clinical research with the aim of diagnosing cancer much earlier in healthy people.

With our scan it is possible to diagnose asymptomatic tumors, including those that are not usually the target of conventional screening programmes.

What are the benefits?

Like all MRI scans, this scan does not involve ionizing radiation, and does not require any injections. It is a non-invasive assessment with no long-term side effects.

It allows the Radiologists to detect cancer lesions as small as 5 millimetres; small enough to provide an effective early diagnosis.

The scans are reported by Professors Anwar Padhani and Dow-Mu Koh, recognised leaders in their field.

Unlike most screening scans this exam requires no medication in advance, no unpleasant pre-scan bowel diuretics and as you can return to work immediately afterwards. There is also no need to fast before the scan.

We believe that the best cure for many tumours is through prevention in healthy people.
