In the medical field, the term Check-up indicates a path of examinations and diagnostic tests, which allow an in-depth assessment of a person’s general health. The word check-up includes examinations and clinical tests of all types: from simple questionnaires relating to clinical and family history up to the most complex instrumental examinations and so-called screening tests, passing through checks on blood, urine, visual abilities, etc.
Check-ups are essential in the early diagnosis and treatment of serious diseases, as well as their prevention.
After 40, it is particularly important to have a check-up at least once a year.
There are many types of check-ups and the path and type of Check-up to follow each year is recommended by a doctor based on age, lifestyle, and exams from previous years.
HOW The Check-up can be of various levels and provide for different types of exams depending on the pathology to be investigated. Our proposal provides for a complete check-up of the whole body basically for prevention. We planned hematological (blood) tests to assess cardiological and diabetes risk. This is followed by tests with diagnostic instruments to check sight, chest, thyroid, abdomen, and the proper functioning of internal organs (liver, bile, kidneys …). We have provided the Doppler ultrasound to check the state of the arteries and any occlusions caused by cholesterol. For men, we added prostate control and mammography for women.
