What does it involve?

What’s included in the Stroke Screening Package at Thomson Hospital Kota Damansara: 

General Assessment

▸ Blood Pressure Reading

This test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low. High blood pressure (hypertension) can put a stress on your arteries and organs, which can increase your risk of developing serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Low blood pressure (hypotension) is not usually as serious, but it can cause dizziness and fainting in some people, especially elderly.

▸ Pulse Rate Reading

This test measures your heart rate, which checks for too fast (tachycardia) or too slow (bradycardia) rates, as well as irregular rhythms (arrhythmias) – which can indicate structural heart defects.

▸ Height and Weight, Body Mass Index BMI

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI can be used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems but it is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual.

Blood Screening

Full Blood Count
Haemoglobin; RBC; WCC; 5 part differential count; Platelet count; PCV; MCH/MCV; MCHC; Peripheral blood film; ESR

This test gives an overview of blood health: highlighting early signs of blood disorders, infection, inflammation and blood cancers.

Diabetes Screening

▸ Fasting blood glucose, HbA1C

This test tells you how much sugar you have circulating in your body. Higher sugar (glucose) predisposes you to diabetes. This test includes HbA1C, which helps diagnose diabetes and prediabetes. It can also guide patients already on existing diabetes sugar-lowering medications.

Lipid Assessment

▸ Lipid Function Profile (Cholesterol)
Total cholesterol; Triglycerides; LDL; HDL; Total cholesterol/HDL ratio

This is an in depth test showing levels of various cholesterols and fatty acids in your blood. High cholesterol predisposes to heart disease, stroke and diabetes. This test is also helpful to guide patients on existing cholesterol lowering medication – to gauge if they are on adequate medication.

Liver Function

▸ Liver Function Profile
ALT (SGPT); AST (SGOT); GGT; Total protein; Albumin; Globulin; ALP; Bilirubin (total)

This test gives an overview of liver function: highlighting your body’s nutrition status, protein content, liver enzyme function and ability to excrete your body’s toxins and waste. It detects any early signs of liver dysfunction.

Kidney Function

▸ Renal Profile
Sodium; Potassium; Chloride; Urea; Creatinine; Phosphate; Calcium

This test gives an overview of kidney health: highlighting early signs of reduced kidney function, body electrolyte content, mineral content and hydration level.

Urine Analysis

▸ Urine FEME
Urinalysis: appearance, colour, pH, protein, glucose, ketones, blood, WBC, RBC, epithelial cells, crystal, cast, bilirubin, urobilinogen, nitrite, leukocytes

This test gives a comprehensive overview of your kidney health. Abnormalities can highlight early signs of urinary tract dysfunction, diabetes or liver dysfunction.

Blood Grouping

▸ ABO Blood Grouping +  Rhesus

This test is conducted to categorise your blood type and group, alongside your Rhesus status. It is important to know your blood type to prevent the risk of you receiving an incompatible blood type at a time of need, such as during a blood transfusion or during surgery.

Thyroid Assessment

▸ Thyroid Function Studies (TSH & FT4)
TSH, Free T4

TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test gives an overview of thyroid health: highlighting the effectiveness of your body’s metabolism. Free thyroxine (free T4) tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. It is usually analysed when thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is abnormal.

Cardiac Screening

Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity in your heart at rest. This can give insight into your heart rate and heart rhythm. It also highlights irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), previous heart attacks (myocardial infarction), blocked coronary arteries, high blood pressure (hypertension), heart valvular diseases and structural heart defects

Eye Tests

▸ Visual Test (Snellen Chart)

A series of tests performed to assess vision, visual fields and ability to focus on and discern objects.

Radiological Examination

▸ Brain MRI (without contrast) + MRA
MRI: Magnetic Resonance Imaging; MRA: Magnetic Resonance Angiography)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet and radio waves to look at organs and structures inside your body. To diagnose a variety of conditions, from torn ligaments to tumors. MRIs are very useful for examining the brain and spinal cord. Magnetic Resonance Arthrography (MRA) is similar to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) but provides better quality images – to evaluate blood vessels and help identify abnormalities.
