It is created to reveal pathological changes in a healthy organism, - the head physician of the regional centre of medical preventive maintenance Vladislav Dvornikov explains. - that is the person lives and on what does not complain, and we to it suggest to pass inspection to reveal possible illness, and then already to treat.

  « the health Centers » are equipped by exclusively modern and expensive diagnostic equipment. programmno - the hardware complex investigates an organism as a whole, and other devices - work of separate bodies. For example, kardiovizor allows to see heart in the three dimensional image.

In area territory exists 6 « the health Centers ». Three in Murmansk, on one - in Monchegorsk, Apatity and Severomorsk. And two centres are focused on children, and the others accept adults. It is considered best of them Monchegorsk. It works at city polyclinic.   only this year there have passed inspection of more thousand townspeople.
