How is Medical Check-up Performed?
For check-up, you first should make an appointment for desired check-up. Your check-up doctor will ask you questions about medications you take and your past history of diseases. Accordingly, scope of check-up is determined and the doctor informs the patient about drugs that should be used or stopped, if any, before the check-up visit. Patients should stop eating and drinking for a certain period of time (8 to 10 hours) before presenting for check-up; when the medical center is visited, blood and urine samples are collected along with electrocardiogram (ECG) and radiology studies, such as chest X-ray and abdominal ultrasound. Age- and gender-specific tests can also be ordered, such as mammography and PSA test. Endoscopic examinations can be planned for patients older than 50.
