Our complex screening packages were compiled to detect developing pathological alterations in time, which are caused by increased stress and an accelerated lifestyle. For cardiovascular and cancerous diseases it is especially true that the effectiveness of their treatment highly depends on the time of their detection. When symptoms already occur, total recovery cannot always be guaranteed, but a therapy initiated in time may even lead to a full recovery. Regular and personalised screening examinations help detect the signs of diseases in time.
Stress related to work or personal life, fatigue, irritation and various sleeping disorders may indicate the onset of disease(s). Managers’ diseases, caused by chronic stress, not exclusively affect people in management positions; thus, managers’ screening is recommended for everyone.
We particularly recommend managers’ screening for women and men over the age of 45 with significantly stressful work. The screening packages range from a basic screening to premium services, which offer a complete medical check-up including a detailed cardiology examination and whole-body MRI screening.
A managers’ screening is performed in a previously scheduled time in the Affidea health centers in a pleasant environment, without queues or waiting. Our experienced specialists assess the physical condition and potential risk factors of the participants during the few-hour-long screening. A comprehensive specialist assessment is compiled based on the results. The summary includes the medical explanation and the personalised specialist consultation with advice on preventive measures.

* As an additional examination, gastroscopy and colonoscopy should be performed in the presence of risk factors younger than 50 years or in the family. The value of these tests is HUF 140,000, which must be paid in addition to the price of the filter package. If tests are performed and the patient receives a negative result, a follow-up test is recommended after 10 years.
During the internal medical examination, the specialist records the patient’s accurate medical history (personal and family), asks out about regular medications and whether the patient has allergic and/or drug sensitivity symptoms, and also learns more about the patient’s lifestyle habits and complaints. The physician performs a physical examination, a BMI calculation and takes the patient’s blood pressure.
An internal medical examination assesses the general health condition of the patient. Several diseases that do not yet cause complaints (e.g. anaemia, thyroid gland disease, lung disease, high blood pressure, gastrointestinal disease, inflammation, varicose veins) may be revealed during the examination. After the reports are evaluated, further diagnostic or specialist examinations are be recommended, if needed.
Medical history and complaints are revealed during this examination. The specialist asks about regular medications, known allergies; examines the surface of the skin, the nails and the scalp, and performs additional examinations, if needed.
To reveal various inflammations, infectious diseases of the skin, benign and malignant lesions, and sun damage.
A PA (posterior-anterior) scan and a lateral scan is performed of the chest.
It provides important information about the diseases of the lung, heart, pleura, and organs of the thoracic wall. The scan is able to show anatomical and inflammatory lesions, chronic lung disease and – in certain limited cases – even lung cancer. Congestive heart failure can also be detected with this examination.
During a CT examination, transverse image sections are made, while patients have to hold their breath for a few seconds. The CT examination table moves during the examination, and the patients lie on their back. This examination produces a series of images from the apex of the lung to the bottom of the adrenal gland.
A chest CT is a useful diagnostic procedure to detect and monitor the diseases of the thoracic organs (lungs, heart, great vessels). Besides providing help in detecting cancerous diseases, it also aids the diagnosis of other lung diseases. A chest CT examination provides a more detailed picture of the condition of the lungs compared to a chest X-ray. The transverse sections made during a chest CT allow specialists to detect alterations in the lung that are only a few millimetres in size.
Nowadays, the screening examination of the lung involves only low radiation exposure. It is recommended to be performed for every patient in a high risk population (active and passive smokers, and those with a positive family history).
During an abdominal-pelvic ultrasound scan, every organ is examined from the diaphragm to the pubic bone. The shape and structure of the liver, the gallbladder, the bile ducts, the pancreas and the spleen are all visualised. The kidneys and abdominal arteries can also be examined accurately. The wall of the bowels can be assessed, but an ultrasound examination alone is not enough to clarify abdominal and intestinal complaints. The urinary bladder, the uterus, the ovary, and the prostate can be examined in the pelvis.
The examination detects anatomical lesions, malformations, as well as diseases (especially inflammations, stone diseases, benign lesions, cancers). Performing additional examinations might be necessary after the result of the scan.
This procedure allows the examination of the thyroid gland, the parathyroid gland, as well as the big salivary glands and cervical lymph nodes.
The examination detects potential inflammatory processes, lumps, cysts, enlargement of structures, pathological lymph nodes and inflammation of the thyroid gland. The examination not only involves the examination of the thyroid gland, but also the surrounding soft tissue, salivary glands and cervical lymph nodes.
On a cardiology examination, the physician reviews the patient’s personal and family history and learns about the patient’s regular medications, known allergies and drug sensitivities. The patient’s lifestyle habits, and potential complaints are also reviewed. The examination also includes assessing the physical condition, blood pressure measurement and BMI calculation, as well as percussion of the chest, and auscultation of the heart and lung sounds. After these, an ECG (electrocardiography) examination is performed.
The examination assesses cardiovascular risks. This allows the diagnosis of arrhythmia, high blood pressure, and heart failure.
The examination is absolutely painless and takes approximately 20 minutes. It is performed in a supine position, using an ultrasound device.
The size of the heart cavities, the structure of the heart, closing of the valves, movement of the walls, and blood flow are examined. Primarily, these allow the detection of the signs of infarction, valve diseases, and high blood pressure.
The ECG examination looks into the electrical function of the heart. It helps diagnose arrhythmias, and visualises signs of coronary disease. Some cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular diseases may also cause ECG alterations.
During an exercise ECG test, electrodes are attached to the chest and a blood pressure measuring device is attached to one arm. A bicycle or a treadmill may be used to induce exertion. The patient is gradually exhausted by increasing the resistance and speed of the bicycle/treadmill.
The functional examination of the heart, which also allows us to study the effect of physical exertion on the heart, as well as the blood pressure response and potential arrhythmia caused by exertion. The examination is also able to screen for coronary disease.
A laboratory examination provides a general picture of the patient’s health condition via the following parameters: blood count, liver function, kidney function, ions, urine, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, proteins, uric acid, lipids, blood sugar and TSH.
To reveal potential anaemia, diseases related to the liver, kidneys, sugar and the thyroid gland, and even any type of inflammation. Additional examinations might be necessary if needed.
This examination detects blood in the stool, which could originate from any part of the gastrointestinal tract; it can be caused by inflammation, as well as benign or malignant lesions. In case of a positive test, additional examinations are needed to clarify the cause.
During the examination, the physician reviews the patient’s personal and family history and asks about the patient’s regular medications and known drug sensitivities. During the physical examination, external genital organs are inspected, the testicles are palpated, and a digital rectal prostate examination is performed by palpation. PSA levels are determined from the blood. An elevated antigen count may suggest inflammation or cancer, and such a result can be assessed together with the urology examination.
The examination may reveal anatomical alterations, hernia, inflammation, and cancer.
A gynaecological examination starts with recording the patient’s history, which involves the patient’s medical history, complaints and regular medications. This is followed by a physical (bimanual) examination, cervical screening and a vaginal ultrasound examination.
A gynaecological examination is able to detect diseases of the female genital organs, myomas, cysts, inflammation, and cancer. It is also used to assess the post-menopausal state.
Complex mammography is a combined examination. It includes palpation of the breasts and the area of the armpit and the surrounding lymph nodes, as well as breast ultrasound and X-ray mammography.
A complex mammography screening examination is a diagnostic method for detecting the benign and malignant lesions and cancers of the breast. It is recommended over the age of 40.
During the examination, the physician reviews the patient’s personal and family history and asks about the patient’s regular medications and known drug sensitivities. The physical examination includes examining the patient’s posture, walking, spine, foot arch, shape of joints, movement, and muscle function.
This examination reveals potential posture problems, joint lesions or muscle diseases.
The examination starts with recording the patient’s history, which involves the patient’s medical history, complaints, and regular medications. This is followed by an eye exam: the physician checks visual acuity, colour vision (if needed), the eye chamber, and also the examines the fundus, and performs a manual intraocular pressure measurement.
This examination reveals potential visual disorders and other eye diseases. Complications secondary to diabetes and high blood pressure may also be diagnosed, which also indicate the presence of these underlying diseases.
The examination of the large intestine allows cancers and pre-malignant lesions to be detected in time. A screening examination is recommended over 50, but for patients with a family history of colon cancer or severe colitis, colonoscopy is recommended over the age of 40, or even at a younger age. If a benign lesion is found, the result of the histology examination of the sample determines if a control examination is required after one or more years. In case of a negative result, a follow-up examination is required 10 years later.
A successful colonoscopy examination requires a few days of preparation, during which the large intestine becomes sufficiently empty for a thorough examination. There are two ways to perform the examination: using an instrument or virtually (CT). Nowadays, there are several methods to reduce the discomfort related to the instrumental examination (it can even be performed under anaesthesia). A virtual, CT-colonoscopy procedure is sufficient for a screening examination. It this case, if the examination reveals a polyp or other lesions, the instrumental examination must also be performed for sampling and removal; however, it is enough to only proceed until reaching the lesion.
The results of each examination and the diagnoses are summarised in the overall summary; if needed, further examinations are recommended, and the patient is given lifestyle advice.
