Screening Exams

University MRI & Diagnostic Imaging Centers has the most advanced CT imaging technology available. Scan results are reviewed by Board Certified Radiologists who have skill and experience in interpreting body images.

We offer a variety of body scanning options:
- Full Body Scan
- Heart Scan
- Virtual Colonoscopy
- Brain and Lung Scans

Full Body Scan

- A Full Body Scan includes imaging of the neck down through the pelvis area including the heart, lungs, colon, kidneys, liver, pancreas, ovaries, spleen, prostate, gall bladder and uterus.

A Full Body Scan can help detect and identify early signs of:
- Cancer and Tumors
- Heart Disease
- Aneurysms
- Ovarian Disease
- Emphysema
- Spinal Disease
- Osteoporosis
- Endocrine Tumors

Heart Scan - A Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Plaque build-up in the coronary arteries is a crucial risk factor for a heart attack. This specialized scan provides images of the coronary arteries allowing the physician to identify and measure the smallest particles of calcified plaque.

This scan is appropriate for anyone with one or more of the following heart disease risk factors:
- Smoking
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes
- Obesity
- Physical inactivity
- High stress levels
- Genetics
- Age (men over 35, women over 40)

Virtual Colonoscopy - Until recently, a Barium Enema X-ray or conventional Colonoscopy were the only diagnostic procedures used to screen for colorectal cancer. Virtual Colonoscopy involves a noninvasive scan instead of a scope and requires no lengthy visit or sedation. The scan is used to detect polyps. Since polyps can take years before becoming cancerous, with proper screening, colorectal cancer may be prevented. For more information on this scan, please visit our Virtual Colonoscopy page.

Brain Scan - A Brain Scan is used to detect tumors and brain abnormalities.

Low-Dose Lung Scan - Lung cancer kills more Americans than any other type of cancer. The five-year survival rate for lung cancer is only 14%. However, it is estimated that the survival rate may be increased to 80% through early detection and treatment. Lung scans are able to detect very small tumors often before they are large enough to be detected by conventional X-rays. By detecting lung cancer at an early stage, an individual's survival rate may be significantly improved.

The Low-Dose Lung Scan may be a useful tool for the early detection of lung cancers and other abnormalities in people with any of the following risk factors:
- Smoking
- Exposure to second-hand smoke
- Exposure to cancer-causing agents such as asbestos, radon, and so on
- History of pneumonia or tuberculosis
- Family history of lung cancer
