A general, thorough Medical check-up aims to prevent lifestyle-related diseases, detect cancer early on, and more.
Your health affects more than just yourself. It is extremely important to your family and to society as well. We recommend a thorough Medical check-up to offer you a full and healthy life.
In addition to general, thorough Medical check-ups, you can also have a more detailed Super Medical Check-Up here.
Our Super Medical Check-Up is different from simply a traditional or standard check-up with additional and optional screenings added on. Instead, it is a program that allows you to undergo a wide variety of examinations in a short period (1 and a half days), including cranial MRI examinations for cancer, cerebrovascular disease, etc., (including PET/CT scans, gastroscopy, etc.), in addition to all that is included in a traditional check-up.
Super Medical Check-Up Features
|►Cancer screening and MRI examinations, together with a traditional Medical check-up.|
|►Examinations typically performed separately, such as PET/CT scans and gastroscopy, can be done at the same time.|
►Prostate cancer screening for men, and uterine cancer screening for women is included by default.
*Breast cancer screening for women and some other cancer screenings are optional.
|►In general, these super Medical check-ups receive priority and we arranged our schedule so that you don't have to wait long.|
|►After the check-up is finished, our director or assistant director will clearly explain the results to you.|
|►You can have lunch at the Restaurant Vie Brute next door to the hospital during the 2 days required for the check-up (price included).|
|►There is no need to spend the night at the hospital after the first day, and you can go to the hospital from your own home on the second day, as well.|
|►There is a place to stay near the hospital if you live far away.|
