Low cost medical diagnostics? MRI/CT/Xray/DNA Sequencing?

I want to better understand my body. So, I want data - baseline data. Going to sign up for 23andMe
, and I'd also like to get some imaging done. In particular, I'd like an MRI of my body (head and torso) and any other medical diagnostics I can buy.
I'm interested in your suggestions for cheap medical imaging
, and also for your suggestions on other ways to collect hard data about my body and its condition.

I have cash to do this (say, $2000) and also have health insurance. I don't know how to use my health insurance to accomplish this task.
Please, no lectures. I don't think I can diagnose myself and I know I need a doctor's help to understand the data, and I have plenty of doctors in my life. Baseline data will be useful to see what changes as I age.
