The health screening procedure usually starts with urine test. Buscopanl, a chemical which is injected before the gastroendoscopy test, may interrupt urine flow. So, a urine test should be always performed before the gastroendoscopy test. After the urine test, a venipucture is performed for a blood testing followed by an EKG test. A diagnosis by a doctor will be performed next. Lastly, a patient has a chest X-ray, an abdominal ultrasound test and gastroendoscopy.
A general procedure of health screening:
Urine test -> Venipucture -> EKG -> Diagnosis by a doctor -> Chest X-ray, Abdominal Ultrasound -> Gastroendoscopy, Pulmonary Function Test -> Physical Examination
Staffs in Seoul Central Clinic can modify the procedure of health screening based on customers’ needs. When seeing a result, understanding what those numbers or graphs mean is more important than simply focusing on the words, ‘negative’ or ‘positive.’ Although the result says ‘negative,’ the numbers may represent higher risk for specific disease. Therefore, health screening can guide a patient to have a better life style and also reduces risks.
