About various examinations for Health screening


ECG examination
【Resting ECG】
This is an examination to record how the heart conducts electricity by attaching electrodes to the limbs and chest. There is no numbness or pain at all because it is not a test that passes electricity through the body. The test will be done in a few minutes, lying down on the bed, and will be completed in a few minutes. You can find heart diseases such as arrhythmias, cardiac hypertrophy, and myocardial infarction.

Chest X-ray examination
Chest (examined to check for abnormalities in the lungs, mediastinum (the area between both lungs and heart), thorax, pleura (capsular), and heart)

Stomach X-ray examination
Esophagus, stomach, duodenum (possible with gastroscopy, but reservation must be made 2 weeks in advance)
(Examination of the lesions of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum by taking a contrast medium (barium) and the main purpose is the early detection of gastric cancer. Of course, it also aims to detect ulcers and other diseases)

Breast cancer examination / Visual palpation, breast echo examination (ultrasound examination)
Visual examination, breast echo examination (ultrasound examination)
This is a method of inspecting breast lesions using ultrasound. Breast ultrasound is used to diagnose lumps that can not be detected only by a doctor’s palpation, or benign / malignant lumps. Suitable for a person with a developed mammary gland,and examination of young people.

Breast cancer examination Visual examination, breast X-ray examination (mammography)
Visual examination, breast X-ray examination (mammography)

Mammography is a mammogram, which is taken with X-rays generated at a very low voltage. Lumps that cannot be detected only by a doctor’s palpation can be diagnosed. (It is suitable for the detection of breast cancers with breast cancer.
It is particularly suitable for the discovery of breast cancer with calcification.In addition, it can diagnose mastopathy, breast fibroadenoma, etc.

Abdominal echo
Upper abdominal echo (ultrasound: liver, bile, kidney, spleen, pancreas)
(Abdominal ultrasound is a method of observing the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen.
Because if there is food left in the stomach, the gastrointestinal tract moves or gas accumulates, and sufficient observation cannot be done.It will be fasted on the morning of the inspection.
In the examination, jelly is applied to the abdomen, a terminal is applied, and observation is performed from various directions. Check the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen for cancer or polyps.
However, obese people may not be able to observe the pancreas sufficiently.

Examining sputum cells
Examine the cells mixed in the sputum with a microscope.
This is a test to examine cells with a microscope to check for cancer cells. If sputum is not collected properly, accurate test results may not be obtained.

Vital capacity test
Vital capacity, 1 second amount, 1 second rate
A test to check the function of the lungs by inhaling and exhaling with the mouthpiece. There is no pain, but you will have to make every effort to ensure accurate testing. This is a test to measure the vital capacity and forced vital capacity to check for diseases such as airways and lungs.

Fundus examination
Both eyes
(This is a test to take a picture of the condition of the blood vessels, retina, and optic nerve head in the fundus (the back of the eyeball) .The fundus is the only place where the state of the blood vessels can be observed directly. Not only eye diseases but also diabetes and arteriosclerosis. In addition, it is possible to estimate systemic diseases related to vascular disorders such as hypertension, etc. Furthermore, it is effective for early detection of eye diseases such as glaucoma, optic nerve crevice enlargement, and fundus hemorrhage.

MR head dock
・ Head MRI & MRA ・ Neck MRA
・ Diagnosis (neurological examination) ・ Explanation of results

Cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, etc. often lead to life loss in an instant, and severe sequelae such as speech impairment and paralysis.
These are slow in “from onset” treatment, and “prevention to prevent onset” is important. This hospital conducts “Head MR Screening” for early detection.

[Diseases to be discovered]
-Cerebral infarction without subjective symptoms
・ Unruptured cerebral aneurysm
・ Brain tumor
・ Brain arteriovenous malformation
·cerebral hemorrhage
・ Moyamoya disease
