Is there any software that will completely scan all sectors of a desired drive on OS X?

I use HD Tune Pro on Windows and love the full scan feature.

Do any of these options do a full disk scan of the sectors like HD Tune Pro?
I believe Smart Utility has the option of running a 'quick test'. However you don't really need a program that can do a scan for the sectors because if there are any corrupted/reallocated sectors, this data is automatically written into the SMART data.

Typically checking the 'Health' tab on HD Tune Pro will immediately show whether or not there is an issue.

That's not entirely true. I have had HD Tune Pro give me a SMART health status of "OK." Then, when I would run a full sector scan, it would turn up one or more bad sectors.
