Private Medical Check Up (Introduction)

What is "Private Medical Check Up"?

"Ningen Dock" translated means "Private Medical Check Up". It is a program designed to maintain your health. Ningen Dock was originally established in Japan to provide comprehensive health examinations to detect and treat potential health risks at an early stage. At the Healthcare Center, we offer half-day and full-day Ningen Dock programs for your specific health needs. The Standard examination package for a half-day Ningen Dock includes: a physical examination, audibility test, urine examination, chest x-ray, barium gastrography, abdominal ultrasonography, electrocardiogram test, and other diagnostic tests. Full-day Comprehensive Ningen Dock package includes the Standard package plus a full range of screening tests: MRI brain scan, 320 Multi-Slice heart and lung CT scan and a colonoscopic examination. A Healthcare Center staff member will escort you to each procedure and assist you throughout the day. National Health Insurance does not cover Ningen Dock.
