Differences In Medical Check-ups And General Check-ups?
Hello, I want to ask what is the difference between medical check-up and general check-up?
Thank you for the question.
Medical check-up (MCU) is a comprehensive (general) health check that can be done for a variety of purposes, such as to detect an early disease, plan the best treatment before the disease develops, evaluate a person's vitality, know the risks of the disease in the future, or also just a prerequisite for joining and occupying certain positions in an institution. So in fact, MCU and general check-up are two of the same terms.
At the MCU, doctors can perform a variety of procedures, ranging from extracting personal identities, interviews related to complaints experienced by general medical history, examination of vital signs, physical examination from head to toe (head to toe), with specialization in certain areas of the body. In some conditions, supporting tests can also be done, for example blood tests, urine tests, x-rays, and other supporting tests.
As for the details of the types of examinations carried out during the MCU, how to interpret them, and many other questions about the MCU, it is better to ask directly to the examining doctor or the organizing institution.
I hope this helps.
