Essential Plus Preventive Health Evaluation consists of the following tests and examinations:

A comprehensive internistic treatment

A comprehensive internistic treatment involves the introductory specialist internist examination with a review of medical history and medical status. It also includes anthropometric measurements and the final consultation with the analysis and interpretation of the findings, as well as an assessment of the risk of developing a disease. with an extensive written opinion.

Comprehensive laboratory tests

With the laboratory analysis we define the complete blood count, the functioning of the liver, kidneys, pancreas and thyroid, and evaluate the electrolyte balance, as well as the levels of iron, glucose and cholesterol in the blood.

BLOOD ANALYSIS: sample collection, haemogram with a differential blood count, sedimentation, hepatogram – liver condition indicators (AST, ALT, GGT, AF, bilirubin), electrolytes in blood (potassium, sodium, chlorine, calcium, phosphorus), kidney condition indicators (urea, creatinine, uric acid), pancreas tests (amylase, lipase), blood sugar – glucose, lipid profile – blood fats (cholesterols, HDL, LDL, triglycerides), CK, LDH, iron, TIBC, proteins, albumins, prothrombin time, INR, thyroid hormone – TSH, vitamin D, PSA (men).

URINE ANALYSIS: basic analysis and sediment.

Ultrasound of abdominal organs

Examination of the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, large abdominal vessels, urinary tract, prostate and reproductive organs.

Ultrasound of soft cervical tissue (thyroid, lymph nodes, pancreas)

Gastroscopy

Endoscopic examination of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum.

The modern pace of life and eating habits also affect the functioning of the upper gastrointestinal tract and contribute to more frequent occurrence of gastritis, wounds on the mucous membrane of the stomach and duodenum, and increasingly also to the inflammation of oesophagus.

Cardiological examination and diagnostics

A cardiovascular examination includes:

  • Examination by a cardiology specialist
  • Recording and inspection of an ECG: basic test in cardiology, which assesses the heart rhythm and function of the heart muscle.
  • Spirometry: measurement of lung volumes and pulmonary function assessment. The exam test helps to differentiate the symptoms of pulmonary and cardiac diseases.
  • Exercise stress test on a treadmill: it assesses the capacity of the cardiovascular system and determines heart function during exercise.
  • Ultrasound examination of the heart: a test which identifies any changes in the valves, heart muscle thickening, chamber enlargement, etc.
  • Ultrasound examination of the carotid arteries: the examination allows us to assess the early signs of atherosclerosis (hardening) of blood vessels.

Specialist dermatological examination with examination of moles

Regular check-ups at a dermatology clinic are very important to prevent and reduce the occurrence of skin diseases and their early detection.

Urological examination and diagnostics - males

Examination of the urinary tract:

  • Specialist urological examination,
  • Rectal examination of the prostate (if needed),
  • Uroflow: measuring the flow of urine,
  • PSA-analysis: analysis of the prostate-specific antigen, which is determined by blood sampling.

Prostate problems are often a cumbersome companion of men after the age of 40, regardless of whether the enlargement is benign or cancerous. With clinical examination, laboratory tests and a functional examination which measures the flow of urine, we can determine the right time for treatment.

Gynaecological examination and diagnostics - women

Examination of the reproductive system:

  • PAP smear test,
  • cytology,
  • gynaecological ultrasound.

Obstetrics is one of the few areas of medicine where a very simple examination can detect precancerous cervical lesions and cervical cancer. It also reveals changes in the vagina, especially various infections, detects tumours of the uterus and ovaries, and observes various anatomical changes.

Breast ultrasound - women

A breast ultrasound is a non-invasive ultrasound procedure used as a standalone screening tool or as an adjunct to mammography.

A clinical dietitian will analyse your body composition using an InBody analyser, analyse your current eating habbits, advice you on a healthy, protective diet and give you written instructions with a nutrition and exercise plan.
