DC | Teikyo Maastricht is a diagnostic clinic, which since 1992 has focused primarily on Japanese expats living and working in Europe, and their families. Over the course of nearly 25 years DC | Teikyo Maastricht has built up an excellent reputation and an enormous expertise.
In accordance with the Japanese law, Japanese companies annually facilitate their staff the opportunity to undergo a preventive medical examination. DC | Teikyo Maastricht is optimally equipped to meet this need.
Our objective is to obtain a detailed and reliable picture of your health in a non-invasive, safe, efficient and customer-friendly manner. Our statement here at DC |Teikyo Maastricht is: prevention is better than cure. This is called primary prevention.
The examination starts with an anamnesis (medical interview) in which, on the basis of the questionnaire completed by you, your health is discussed. Subsequently you undergo a comprehensive physical examination. In addition to the measurement of weight, height, waist, BMI determination and the measurement of the blood pressure, a so-called top-toe examination is carried out and all the major organ systems and body functions are monitored. These examinations will be performed by the general practitioner (e.g. home doctor).
Specialized examinations will be performed by specialized doctors (e.g. specialist internal medicine, gynecologist, radiologist).
Depending on the package you choose, the imaging techniques vary from abdominal ultrasonography (an ultrasound examination of abdominal organs), chest X-ray (lung photo), gastroscopy (view in the stomach), barium meal examination (examination of the stomach and small intestine), to mammography (examination of the breasts) and a dexametry (examination of bone density). In addition, the following tests are performed: an ECG (heart tracing) and a gynecological examination, including gynecological ultrasound and PAP smear.
For determination of Helicobacter pylori (bacteria, related to the onset of stomach cancer) a simple and reliable stool test is available. Since this test is available there is no need to perform a barium meal examination or to have gastroscopic examination any longer. Only in case of (alleged) ulcer in the stomach or duodenum, gastroscopic examination is recommended.
The laboratory research consists of a more comprehensive analysis of the blood, an examination of the urine and a sample of the stool. The material is collected locally and sent to a specialized laboratory for further analysis. In a number of cases some further tissues may be collected (e.g. gastric mucosa, PAP smear) . These additional materials will be tested in specialized laboratories.
The range of studies offered and performed in our center is focused on and related to age (children, young adults, elderly) and gender (male / female).
At the end of the different examinations follows a take-out by the same doctor who performed the intake. Here you will be informed about the (preliminary) research and your questions will be answered. In addition, we give personal advise to maintain your good health or to re-acquire an optimal state of health. If illness or significant abnormality is encountered and (urgent) further examination, treatment or evaluation is required, we give a referral advice and support you in finding a treatment center in your area.
As soon as the other research results (e.g. blood tests) are known, the final study report is prepared and sent to you.
Our specialists are attached to Maastricht University Medical Center, the Zuyderland Medical Centre in Heerlen / Sittard / Geleen and at St. Jans Hospital in Weert. Our highly trained and Japanese-speaking nurses and support staff, that is fully familiar with Japan-specific medical problems, put its utmost to offer you a pleasant stay in our clinic.
