Genetic screeningScreening of genetically inherited diseases such as gluten sensitivity, Fabry’s disease, Gaucher’s disease; these are rare but if detected early, patients who receive adequate treatment can prevent late-onset complications.
Screening for childhood/historic infections, certification of past vaccines takenBefore traveling abroad, it may be necessary to get a certificate from a health care provider in your home country about what childhood infectious diseases you have had or what infectious diseases you are properly immunized against. Adult travelers often do not hold a childhood vaccination booklet or cannot recall what diseases they went through in their childhood. For nearly 30 pathogens, a simple blood test is available to assess historic disease or vaccination. These tests require a minimum of two weeks for findings to be issued.
Cardiological screeningWe can assess your individual cardiac disease risk profile from blood tests. If any abnormalities are found, we refer you to the specialist care you need.
1. Wide spectrum lab testing
Bloodwork (Hgb, Hct, WBC, RBC, MCV), sed rate, complete urine + sediment, fecal blood test (Weber’s), blood sugar, infarction risk factors, lipid metabolism (cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglyceride), ions (Na, K, Cl), uric acid, liver function (SGOT, SGPT, gamma GT), renal function (creatinine, carbamide), sepsis and inflammation markers, focal disease detection, immunology and allergy panel.
2. Internal medical, cardiological examination
The examination incudes taking personal and family medical history, and a physical examination. In light of the findings, the internist gives a summary opinion and makes recommendations (medicinal, dietary, life style).
3. ECG (at-rest and stress)
ECG is an instrument for assessing the heart’s function. ECG charts are evaluated by medical specialists in internal medicine or cardiology.
4. Chest X-ray
Chest X-rays tell about the condition of not only the lungs but also the heart and the major vessels.
5. Explorative abdominal and small pelvic ultrasound study
Organs of the abdominal cavity (liver, gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas, spleen) and the small pelvis (urinary bladder, womb and ovaries in women, prostate in men) can be imaged with this test.
6. Comprehensive breast examination for women (physical examination, mammography, breast ultrasound)
Above 40 years of age, or in younger age if necessary, mammography is an important diagnostic screening method of the diseases of the breasts. Abnormalities identified in time respond well to treatment, which is why running a complex breast examination annually is recommended.
7. Gynecological examination including cytology
This instrument-based, physical screening is recommended once a year. Gynecological cancer screening starts with sampling some mucus from the cervix, followed by the inspection of the epithelial surface with a colposcope (a 3D microscope of 5 to 20 times magnifying power). The doctor then palpates the body of the uterus and the ovaries. Early detected changes from normal are readily curable.
8. Urology for men
The urologist carries out the examination and screening of the kidneys, the male sexual organs and the prostate. If there are complaints, they may recommend further targeted investigation.
9. Ophthalmological testing
As well as eyesight assessment, these investigations also include fundus visualization. Fundic structures give valuable information on internal organs. In hypertension, diabetes, and vascular stenosis, ophthalmological testing is part of the diagnostic workup.
10. Surgical examination
Physical examination of the chest, abdomen, and extremities. The presence of hemorrhoids or tumors, if any, is ascertained by the specialist by inspecting the rectum.
11. Otorhinolaryngological examination
Abnormalities of the pharynx, larynx, ears, oral cavity, and nose are examined. A hearing test is performed if necessary.
12. Dermatological screening
Physical and instrumental examination of the skin; inspection and regular monitoring of birthmarks using a dermatoscope. Excision of tissue sample for histopathological assessment if necessary.
13. Rheumatology or orthopedics
Locomotor organ assessment, disease screening, prescriptions for medical devices.
14. Psychological consultation
An overworked lifestyle and day-to-day stress will sooner or later manifest as somatic symptoms. This consultation tries to identify problems and provides personalized lifestyle advice.
Because these supplementary tests of manager screening are time intensive, they require separate appointments. Manager screening takes an approximate 4 to 4.5 hours.
Rare disease screeningScreening of rare diseases such as: Gaucher’s, Fabry’s disease.
Pre-pregnancy screening package
The most important thing to expectant mothers is for the baby to grow in the womb, and be born, in the best possible condition of health. We undergo many infections in our lives, sometimes even without knowing; our body acquires permanent immunity against some of them, which later protects the fetus as well. Other pathogens may reactivate or cause a repeat infection.
Examinations are available to assess what infections have been undergone in the past by the mother and what current infections are posing a risk to the growing baby.
- gonorrhea screening
- cervical cancer screening and HPV test
- direct detection of genital herpes (the virus is detectable by running a PCR on a sample taken from the bladder)
- parvovirus B19 (erythema infectiosum)
- rubella (German measles)
- varicella zoster (chicken pox)
