Why Are You Sick?—The Compass Health Check
- by admin
The Compass Health check is designed to make you more confident about your health, and that confidence is essential to taking care of yourself and your loved ones.
The Compass test is the result of more than 50 years of research and development by the Johns Hopkins University’s Medical Imaging Research Center (IMR) and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
You’ll know if you’re feeling better by feeling it—you’ll get a score.
But the key to the test is to know how to interpret that score.
Here are some of the key takeaways: You’re not sick.
The compass test uses an MRI scanner to measure blood flow in your arm.
The scanner measures blood flow within the body.
When a signal is detected, the test measures blood oxygenation and carbon dioxide (CO2).
If a signal isn’t detected, you’re not feeling better.
The test uses a technique called functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure brain activity.
This method has been used successfully in clinical studies to diagnose and treat neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
The score indicates whether your symptoms are related to the underlying condition.
The lower the score, the worse the symptoms.
The tests also assess whether you’re healthy—or if you have an underlying condition such as a heart disease, stroke, or diabetes.
The scores indicate your overall health, not just your symptoms.
This is especially important if you are diabetic or are in the hospital.
The more the test shows you are healthy, the more you can take care of your body and yourself.
