Brain, Heart, Lung Examination Package
Take good care of these 3 vital organs that work hard every day, with a special check-up package by specialized doctors.
- Cardiovascular disease screening test : Carotid Doppler Ultrasound
- Coronary calcium scan: CT Calcium Score
- Lung cancer screening: CT Chest Low Dose
Carotid Doppler Ultrasound is an examination to determine the risk of stroke and coronary artery disease
What is Carotid Doppler Ultrasound?
Carotid Doppler Ultrasound is a high-frequency echocardiography used to examine the carotid arteries (5-6 mm large arteries located on both sides of the neck, left and right) to see the blood flow up to the brain and if there is plaque or fat in the blood vessels, by measuring the thickness of the artery walls and the velocity of blood flow in the blood vessels. If the carotid artery walls are thickening due to a build-up of plaque, which narrows the diphtheria blood vessels, or have blood clots from a blood vessel in this area that have escaped to the peripheral artery, it will cause poor/no blood supply to the brain, cerebral ischemia, and subsequent paralysis (stroke).
The CT Calcium Score is a method to measure the amount of calcium in the coronary arteries that may be attached to the artery walls, heart valves, or pericardium.
What is the CT Calcium Score?
The CT Calcium Score is a method to measure the amount of calcium in the coronary arteries which may be attached to the artery walls, heart valves, or pericardium. With CT Scan technology, the most important thing to be careful of is plaque build-up in the walls of blood vessels that supply the heart muscle. This is caused by the deterioration of arteries and can occur many years before the symptoms of heart disease are experienced. The calcium content can help predict the likelihood of ischemic heart disease. In addition, people with diabetes, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, and smoking also increase the risk of acute myocardial infarction from acute coronary syndrome.
CT Chest Low Dose is a computed tomography screening test for lung cancer.
What is CT Chest Low Dose?
CT Chest Low Dose is a computed tomography screening test for Lung Cancer which uses less radiation. with three-dimensional imaging that provides a higher resolution than conventional X-rays.
What are the advantages of CT Chest Low Dose?
- More detailed thanconventional x-rays.
- More accurate results.
- Reduces the risk of using radiation.
- Screening for cancer at the early stage.
