Are scans and investigations for you?

Information is power when it comes to healthcare. Scans and investigations help your GP or consultant confirm a diagnosis, monitor a particular condition or give you peace of mind. This means you can begin or change treatment at the right time. If you’re feeling run-down or you have a family history of a genetic condition, tests can also offer reassurance or provide an early warning of health problems. Having the information is the first step towards reclaiming control of your health. Advances in technology and medical research mean that the number of scans and investigations that help keep you healthy or diagnose disease is growing all the time.
