EXAMINATIONS

Midtown Original Screening・・・4~5 hours
Comprehensive Health Screening (Standard) ・・・3 hours
Life-style related Diseases Prevention Medical checkup A or B・・・1~2 hours
Periodic Checkup・・・1 hour
※The above time is an estimate. Please beware that if you take an optional examination or on busy days the examination time might take longer.
Upper GI endoscopy (gastroscopy):
You may select oral or nasal. The nasal endoscopy has the merit of being able to talk with the physician since the endoscopy is inserted through your nose not your mouth. Although, since the oral endoscopy’s camera has a higher resolution we recommend patients with pylori infection or those who have had pylori infection and who are at a high risk age of cancer (40~50 years and older) or those who prefer a higher resolution.

※If you have had a bad experience with oral endoscopy without sedation, you may have the examination with less pain by having sedation (price: 5,400 yen ). Please inform us beforehand (upon reservation).

【It is essential to read this if you prefer to have sedation】
・If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma or under examination, please consult with your ophthalmologist concerning the sedation (there is a possibility of aggravation with the use of sedation).
・You must not drive an automobile, motorcycle or bicycle after sedation.
After the procedure you are required to stay for about an hour at the recovery area.

Upper GI x-ray test (fluoroscopy of the stomach, Barium):
You swallow barium (contrast media) to examine the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.
The endoscopies at our clinic are saturated/ sterilized according the guideline of the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society. Also, the instruments are sterilized per patient, so there is no threat of infection. You may take a safe examination.
Mammography:
Examine the presence of a nodule (lump), distortion and calcification of the mammary gland. X-ray imaging of breasts, putting breasts on imaging platform and pressing by the compression plate. It is taken from two directions; vertically and laterally. You might experience some pain but the intensity may vary across individuals. Note: Recommended for women over 40 years old. We recommend Breast ultrasound rather than Mammography for women in their 20s and 30s.

Breast Ultrasound:
Examine the presence of a lump, its size and nature. Imaging study of breasts using ultrasound. Lying on the examination table, gel is applied on your breasts (bilateral), and we observe by sliding the probe. Note: It is suitable for all ages.
The gynecologists at the Annual Checkup and Comprehensive Health Screening Center are female.
We regret that the Annual Checkup Center does not, but the Comprehensive Health Screening Center has a ladies day on Wednesday every week. All of the internal, breast and gynecological examinations are conducted by female physicians and specialists. Please understand that part of the endoscopy (gastroscopy) and upper GI x-ray test are conducted by male physicians and radiologists. Note: Male staff may enter the area in emergency situations such as outpatient clinic patients requiring examinations.
In order for the patient to be able to have the blood examination with a safe and relaxing atmosphere, you will have the blood draw while you lie down in a bed.
Please inform the call center staff upon your reservation (please feel free to tell the nurse on the examination day).

Others

There is no risk to develop cancer or leukemia if the exposure to radiation is under 100mSv according to the International Commission of Radiation Protection (ICRP)'s counsel.
http://www.icrp.org/

The health screening tests levels conducted at Tokyo Midtown Clinic
are thought to be a health concern since the figures are Chest X-ray (0.04mSv or less), Chest CT (10mSv or less), Abdomen CT (10mSv or less), Visceral Fat CT (0.5mSv or less), Upper gastro-Intestinal tract radiographic examination (0.6mSv or less) which comes to less than 100mSv even when all tests are summed up.
※These figures will be smaller for people with a slender figure.
Some sources state that the risk of cancer increases by frequent use of the CT, but the CT has a capability to do a detailed test without a preliminary treatment in which results in reducing the patient's burden. As a result, there is merit of detecting lung and other cancers at an early stage.
As for the upper abdomen, the patients have a choice between Upper gastrointestinal tract radiographic examination or the more precise endoscopy.
The MRI/MRA is recommended for examination of the head and the MRI is also recommended for the follow-up to the abdominal ultrasound test.
There is no radioactivity generated by the MRI, ultrasound or endoscopy. We also do not use the contrast for CT for normal examinations.
Blood draw markers are being developed for non-invasive early detection of cancer
