InHealth MRI Plus / InHealth Ultrasound Plus

InHealth MRI Plus offers a unique opportunity to see what lies beyond the scope of a routine annual physical. It provides an inside view of the body and a confidential report, giving the patient peace of mind or opportunity for earlier intervention.

InHealth MRI Plus is a safe, non-invasive and state-of-the-art survey of the body covering the following areas: the brain, chest, abdomen, pelvis, spine, intracranial arteries, aorta, plus carotid arteries, thyroid and lower extremity arteries at ankle by ultrasound.

We also offer InHealth Ultrasound Plus as a budget-friendly, less comprehensive choice. InHealth Ultrasound Plus covers the thyroid, abdomen, pelvis and the lower extremity arteries at the ankle, plus the carotid arteries.

Following imaging, you have the opportunity of receiving a CD with your images, in addition to a preliminary result consultation with a Board Certified Radiologist to discuss any significant findings. Your chosen physician will have immediate access to your images via secure internet portal.

We partner with your primary care physician and encourage InHealth MRI Plus and InHealth Ultrasound Plus assessments as a complement to routine physician visits.

MRI Plus

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues and bone. The assessment will survey all of the following areas by MRI Plus (and Ultrasound for the Carotid and Peripheral Arteries) and note any significant abnormal findings.

There is no x-ray radiation with MRI. MRI Plus surveys for the following:

Brain/Intracranial Arteries

  • brain tumors
  • stroke
  • infections
  • bleeding
  • hydrocephalus — dilatation of fluid spaces within the brain (ventricles)
  • certain chronic conditions (Multiple Sclerosis)
  • disorders of the eye and inner ear
  • sinus issues
  • disorders of pituitary gland
  • vascular problems, such as an aneurysm, arterial occlusion or venous thrombosis

Chest/Aorta

  • cancer of the lungs or other tissues
  • heart enlargement
  • lymph nodes and blood vessels, including vascular and lymphatic
  • pericardial disease
  • lymphoma
  • breast implants
  • fluid in the lungs

Abdomen/Aorta

  • diseases of the liver, such as cirrhosis and tumors
  • diseases of the kidney, spleen, bile ducts, gallbladder and pancreas
  • aortic aneurysm
  • liver tumor
  • cysts
  • gallbladder stones
  • bile duct obstruction
  • pancreas tumor
  • kidney tumor, obstruction, cysts
  • spleen lesions
  • fluid collection in abdomen

Pelvis

  • diseases of the small intestine, colon, rectum and anus
  • bladder tumor
  • diseases of reproductive organs (uterus, ovaries, prostate)

Spine

  • spinal anatomy and alignment.
  • anomalies of vertebrae or the spinal cord
  • problems with intervertebral disk disease (degenerated, bulging or herniated) and intervertebral joint disease, both
  • frequent causes of lower back pain
  • compression of spinal cord and nerves

Lower Extremity Peripheral Arteries/Ankle (by Ultrasound)

  • blood flow
  • narrowing of vessels

Neck/Carotid Arteries (by Ultrasound)

  • blood flow
  • narrowing of vessels

Ultrasound Plus

Ultrasound imaging involves exposing the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body showing the structure and movement of the internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels. This ultrasound risk assessment will survey the following areas and note any significant abnormal findings.

There is no x-ray radiation with Ultrasound. Ultrasound Plus surveys for the following:

Neck

  • thyroid
  • lymph nodes

Upper Abdomen

  • aorta, liver, gallbladder, kidney, aorta, spleen and pancreas

Pelvis

  • uterus, ovaries and bladder

Lower Extremity Peripheral Arteries/Ankle

  • blood flow
  • narrowing of vessles

Neck/Carotid Arteries (by Ultrasound)

  • blood flow
  • narrowing of vessels
