The Cutting-Edge Physical Checkup includes a full set of basic essential examinations such as blood and urine tests, electrocardiogram, and respiratory functionality assessment, as well as precision examinations such as CT, MRI, echo, and endoscopy. CT scans provide a cross-sectional view of the body by irradiating X-rays from multiple angles providing precise information. MRI examinations utilize magnetic force to view cross sections of the body at various angles and are better at identifying some organs and diseases than CT.
Echocardiography, on the other hand, is especially useful for examining the cardiac movements and functions along with the digestive organs, kidneys, and other key organs. Endoscopy provides a direct view of the digestive tract and lesions with high quality color images, useful for early detection of minute or flat lesions. In addition, the checkup also covers vision, bone density, and other advanced precision tests: LOX-index test, microRNA cancer blood test, and genetic testing for cancer, which are the features of this service.

Genetic testing for cancer
LOX-index is a blood test to determine the risk of stroke or myocardial infraction. LOX-1 is a protein that removes foreign substances from the blood and binds to foreign LAB, damaging the vessel walls and increasing arteriosclerosis. The sLOX-1 measured in this test is LOX-1 dissolved in the blood and is known to increase with inflammation. By measuring these factors, the risk of future cerebral or myocardial infarction can be effectively evaluated.
The microRNA cancer blood test examines the risk of developing cancer. By examining the type and amount of microRNA in the blood, various cancers can be detected at an early stage simply by a blood collection. High hopes are on this test as a new diagnostic marker.
