We are excited to offer you this comprehensive Full Body Scan.

This is an exam developed by 3T Imaging/Insight and Dr. Savage to provide our patients with the highest level of technology in screening for specific health-related conditions.

Scheduling and Location

The staff will schedule you for an early morning appointment at 3T Imaging or Insight.

Please confirm at which location you will be seen.
3T Imaging
9000 Waukegan Rd, Morton Grove, IL 60053

Insight Medical Imaging
2009 Warrenville Rd, Lisle, IL 60532

This appointment must be performed early in the morning to accommodate the imaging center staff, and to get these tests performed for you in series, reducing your time at 3T Imaging/Insight.

  • You will need to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment at 3T Imaging/Insight
  • You must fast (water only) for the night before the test.
  • Blood tests will be drawn to check your kidney function before testing.
  • We expect you to spend 2-3 hours getting the testing done.
  • You will then speak with the chief of radiology, who will go over the test results with you.


3T Imaging/Insight and MDLifespan, and the physicians involved, do not ensure that these tests are comprehensive but are only being utilized as a screening method.
You will need to continue to see your primary physician for health-related conditions.


You will be charged at the time of scheduling. Please note that these invoices are not coded for insurance coverage. Insurance does not cover early detection screening.

Cancellation Policy

For any cancellations, please contact us at the office at least seven days in advance to avoid any charge. If you cancel within seven days of your scheduled appointment, you will be charged 50% of the agreed fee. If you cancel within three days of your scheduled appointment, you will be charged the total cost.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask our staff at MDLifespan, 844.752.7629

Diagnostic Tests Included

Brain MRI

Safe and painless, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) uses a magnetic field to produce detailed images of the brain and the brain stem. An MRI does not use radiation and can detect brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and dementia.

Brain MRA

MRA (magnetic resonance angiogram) provides pictures of the brain’s blood vessels using magnetic fields. MRA can detect atherosclerotic (plaque) disease in the arteries, which may limit blood flow and cause a stroke. MRA can also identify aneurysms (weakened arteries) and arteriovenous malformations (abnormal communications between blood vessels), which are both tragic causes of sudden death. We have all heard of someone who seemed strong and healthy, only to be struck down suddenly by a burst blood vessel in their head. Happily, these tragedies can be avoided with early detection.

Ultrasound Thyroid

Thyroid ultrasounds use sound waves to produce pictures of the thyroid gland within the neck. It does not use radiation and can detect nodules, growths, and thyroid cancer.

Ultrasound Carotids

Carotid ultrasounds use sound waves to produce pictures of the carotid arteries in the neck, which carry blood from the heart to the brain. A carotid ultrasound tests for carotid artery blockages, which increase the risk of stroke, and for aneurysms (weakened arteries) in the neck.

Rapid CT Lungs

Using high-speed, low-radiation spiral CTs, we can limit the amount of radiation while detecting problems. CTs work better on the lungs than MRIs. Low-dose CTs of the lung screen for cancers are often missed by conventional chest X-rays.

Calcium Coronary CT scan

Using special X-ray equipment, CT for Calcium Scoring determines if your coronary arteries are blocked or narrowed by the buildup of plaque—an indicator of atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease (CAD). The results can help evaluate your level of risk for a heart attack.

MRI Abdomen

MRI creates detailed images of organs, soft tissues, bone, and all other internal body structures. MRI abdomen can detect cancer of internal organs like the liver, kidney, and pancreas and detect aortic aneurysms.

MRI Pelvis

MRI creates detailed images of organs, soft tissues, bone, and all other internal body structures. MRI pelvis can detect cancer of internal organs and other abnormalities. This exam will look at the bladder and reproductive organs.
