What is the Comprehensive Screening Program
20 examinations * 1 day * 1 location
The Comprehensive Screening Program is a set of examinations serving to diagnose diseases before clinical symptoms become visible. It means that a disease is diagnosed before it actually sets in. The program is based on new knowledge of modern medicine and focuses, in particular, on a timely diagnosis of cardiovascular and lifestyle diseases, as well as cancers. The Comprehensive Screening Program provides us with an insight into what is the weakest point of an individual and how fast he/she will start aging. Generally, we are as old as our weakest point is.
Who should undergo the Comprehensive Screening Program
The Comprehensive Screening Program is suitable for all those who want to take control over their health and to live high-quality lives as long as possible. The screening has a significant importance in determining the causes of fatigue syndromes. The speed and effectiveness of the screening will be appreciated especially by very busy people who put off health checks because they are unable to waste their time in waiting rooms waiting for individual examinations. Also, the level of responsibility is lower as the client doesn´t need to make appointments with specialists, accept long waiting times, provide findings and previous suspicions to individual physicians and seek possible links between them.

What does the Comprehensive Screening Program involve
This set of examinations is characterized by the fact that all examinations are done in one day in one facility - namely on the premises of the GHC Clinic Prague - approximately during 8 hours. On the screening day, the client is checked into a hotel-type room and accompanied by a nurse all day to undergo individual examinations. After basic laboratory tests have been performed that have to be made fasting, the client will have breakfast ready to eat in his/her room. In the later course, there will be lunch and supper.
What is the Comprehensive Screening Program comprised of
- Laboratory blood and urine tests (including tumor markers) - a strategic detection of functional disorders of internal organs, metabolic and mineral disorders, endocrine and immune disorders, as well as a detection of cancers by means of tumor markers;
- Bodystat - bioimpendance - a method using a professional analyzer to measure the contents of the body (percentage of fat, water and water-free active body weight), basal metabolic rate and metabolic consumption for a set activity level;
- An abdominal and thyroid ultrasound examination to determine the morphology of the examined organs. It is able to detect cysts, tumors or inborn anomalies;
- Spirometry - a pulmonary function test. It is a very important examination that helps to detect the causes of breathlessness, including allergies and changes in airways and pulmonary tissue caused by smoking;
- Internal examination is comprised of a detailed medical history and a full internal examination;
- ECG - a recording of the electrical activity of the heart. The recording shows the effect of high blood pressure on the cardiac muscle, ischemic changes or heart rhythm disorders;
- Echocardiography - ultrasound examination of the heart
- An exercise stress test - it is a non-invasive examination method that enables heart monitoring during stress. An excess stress is generated by means of a special device - a bicycle ergometer. Disorders that are not visible on resting ECG may become detectable during the test;
- Dermatological examination - to monitor skin diseases, including the examination of high-risk birthmarks. It is focused on active prevention of melanoma;
- An X-ray of the heart and the lungs;
- Basic eye examination;
- Densitometry - a test used to determine the density of bone tissue. It provides information on the quality of bone tissue and the amount of calcium contained in the bones. It alerts the physician about bone mass loss - osteoporosis;
