What is Check-Up? and What are its Transactions? (Part 1)
Check up; It is a health service that covers all diagnostic and examination applications carried out for the purpose of evaluating the general health status of people, clarifying the risk factors for diseases, control and management of existing health problems. Depending on various parameters such as the age of the person applying for check-up, additional diseases, risk factors; The health status of the person is evaluated by using certain screening tests. If necessary, the patient can be referred to other tests, lifestyle changes can be suggested or treatment can be started.
Check-up Transactions are as follows:
It is an imaging method that helps diagnose conditions such as bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, lung tumors and wounds. It is used in the preliminary evaluation of the heart and respiratory system.
Mammography and Breast Ultrasonography:
It is the method used in the diagnosis of diseases, cysts and tumors in the breast. It is used in the early diagnosis of breast cancer.
Whole Abdominal Ultrasound:
It is used for imaging and diagnosing internal organs such as liver, gall bladder, bile duct, urinary system, bladder, ovaries, kidneys.
It is a method of imaging formations such as irregularities, cysts and tumors in the uterus and ovaries.
The change in the size of the thyroid gland located in the front of the neck, nodule, etc. It is a method for examining formations.
Bone Density Measurement (Femur) / Bone Density Measurement (Lumbar):
It is a diagnostic imaging test used to measure bone mineral density and determine bone resorption. The durability of bone tissue is proportional to the amount of minerals (Ca, P).
The purpose of bone density (density) measurement methods is to determine the quantitative ratio of this mineral part of the bone.
The greater the loss of mineral in the bone, the lower the density is measured. In this case, the bone mineral density is decreased. That is, it is interpreted as osteoporosis.
It is used in the early diagnosis of osteoporosis, which can be seen especially in postmenopausal women.
Lumbo Sacral Vertebrae (Bidirectional):
It is a 2-way film of the lumbar vertebrae taken from the anteroposterior and lateral sides. Patients with osteoporosis may have a compression fracture of the lower back. It is used to evaluate it. Low back collapse may occur in patients with osteoporosis, and it is used in the evaluation of patients with chronic low back pain in others.
CT, Coronary Angio:
It is an examination that allows the coronary arteries to be visualized in seconds. It determines the risk of coronary artery disease and provides visualization of blockages. And it is an imaging test used to evaluate damage to the heart vessels of atherosclerosis.
Low Dose Thorax, CT:
It provides imaging of the lung with much less radiation dose than normal CT. It is recommended in patients at risk of lung cancer and provides more detailed imaging of the lung.
Panoramic Dental Film:
It is the examination that allows the jaws and all teeth to be displayed in a single film.
Carotid RDUS (Bilateral):
It is the imaging of the main vessels leading to the brain. If there is a narrowing or blockage in the blood vessel, it is the test applied to prevent the risk of stroke in the future.
With this method, cardiac muscle and nerve conductions are examined. It also helps in the diagnosis of rhythm disorders and cardiovascular occlusions.
Exercise Test and ECG are the methods used in the preliminary diagnosis of heart rhythm irregularities and coronary artery insufficiency.
It is used in the evaluation of heart muscle and valves.
