Laboratory Analysis

  • Bone Mineral Screen
  • -To detect low levels of calcium or phosphate in the blood. This may predispose you to osteoporosis.

  • Cancer Screening
  • -We offer cancer screening for colon, liver, pancreas and ovarian cancer by testing for tumour markers; which are biomarkers found in the blood of people with cancer.

  • Cholesterol Profile
  • -To measure the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood.

  • Diabetes Profile
  • -Symptoms of prediabetes or diabetes may not be evident, hence screening with a fasting blood glucose level is recommended to detect diabetes. This will evaluate if your body has sufficient insulin to metabolise blood sugar.

  • Hepatitis A & B Screening
  • -To screen for infection and to determine the need for vaccination.

  • Ulric Acid Levels
  • -High levels of uric acid in the blood can predispose you to a gout attack, which can cause severe joint pain, swelling and redness.

  • Liver Profile
  • -To look for normal or abnormal condition of the liver, a vital organ with many functions including the removal of toxic substances from blood.

  • Kidney Profile
  • -To test for urea and the levels of electrolytes. Our kidneys filter out the waste and discard them into the urine. The electrolytes are important indicators of the amount of water and salt in the body.

  • Rheumatoid Factor
  • -To help in diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Stool Analysis for Occult Blood
  • -This is a screening test for colon cancer. It looks for blood in the stools which would indicate bleeding from the gut.

  • Thyroid Function
  • -To screen for levels of thyroid hormone, which is an important hormone in metabolism.

  • Urinalysis
  • -A test to infer the state of kidney function, diabetes and chronic urinary tract infections.

  • Veneral and HIV Screen
  • -To screen for sexually transmitted infections.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Bone Densitometry (DEXA)
  • -A enhanced form of X-Ray technology that measures the density of bone. It is used to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis. These are diseases in which the bone’s mineral density are low, and risk of fractures increased.

  • Chest X-Ray
  • -To check for possible abnormalities or diseases of the airways, pneumonia and other lung diseases.

  • CT Coronary Calcium Score
  • -To check for the buildup of calcium in plaque on the walls of the arteries of the heart.

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • -To assess heart function and rhythm to detect any cardiac abnormalities.

  • Screening Mammogram
  • -To screen for early breast cancer.

  • Ultrasound Scan
  • -We offer ultrasound scans of the abdomen, kidneys, breasts, pelvis and prostate. This is a non-invasive type of scan that does not involve any radiation. It allows us to evaluate organs, vessels and tissues.

Other Clinical Assessments

  • Audiometry
  • -To test how well your hearing functions. It tests the intensity and tone of sounds. It is a screening tool for hearing loss.

  • Pap Smear
  • -To screen for cervical cancer in women.

  • Spirometry
  • -To determine the efficiency of the lungs and airways.

  • Tonometry
  • -To assess eye pressure and risk for glaucoma.

  • Stress Treadmill Test
  • -This is an exercise stress test that is done to assess your heart’s response to the increased workload and demand for blood during exercise. It is used to identify myocardial ischemia, detect coronary artery disease, and evaluate physical capacity and tolerance.

  • Fundus Photography
  • -This will be done at a specialist eye centre. It is used to screen for retinal diseases, glaucoma, and eye complications in diabetes.
