How does Check-Up take place?
The course begins with the internal examination, which consists of an accurate family and personal history, objective examination, and a complete hematochemical sampling, with an evaluation of the lipid, hepatic, kidney, martial balance, and viral hepatitis markers, in order to obtain a precise basic clinical picture.
From this moment a totally personalized path is outlined, through the choice of different specialized visits (for example cardiology, otorhinolaryngology, ophthalmologic, gynecological, urological, dermatological), instrumental examinations (for example abdominal ultrasound, thyroid, cardiac, cardiac, ecocolordoppler of the supra-hortic trunks) and possible further laboratory examinations, based on individual needs. All this always with the guidance of the internist-tutor who coordinates the various specialists and supervises the examinations carried out.
The result is a final report whose meanings may have different operational implications in relation to the results obtained, defining further levels of intervention.
Normalcy, which we all hope for, can be assumed:
- a simple program to control risk factors (cigarette smoking, dyslipidemia, overweight, poor physical activity) or the definition of specific therapy programs for individual specialist problems
- until the need to perform further and more demanding instrumental tests necessary for diagnostic completion (TAC, RMN, scintigraphy, surgery).
