HomeMedical Checkup/Ningen DockBrain Dock

The Brain Dock is the “Ningen Dock for the brain”. The Ningen Dock is a complete medical check, but does not include in-depth inspections of the brain. Since brain diseases are very difficult to treat, it is very important to prevent or find a predictor without fail. Brain Dock can detect a brain aneurysm, brain tumor, unruptured brain aneurysm, Asymptomatic brain infarction, and so on. We recommend middle-aged and elderly people to have Brain Dock once to feel safe.

Brain Dock FAQ

How is Brain Dock different from Ningen Dock?

Ningen Dock is conducted to check your lifestyle habit by testing the entire body including the brain, heart, lungs, etc. Brain Dock focuses on the brain and checks more details about the brain to prevent a stroke or other brain diseases.

At what age, should I start to have Brain Dock?

Regardless of age, it would be better to start as early as possible. Stroke and arterial sclerosis were thought to be diseases of older people so far. But now, people in their 30s can develop those diseases. There are quite a few young people having a high risk of cerebrovascular diseases from high cholesterol, diabetes and lifestyle-related diseases. We recommend you to have Brain Dock a little earlier.

Is Brain Dock covered by insurance?

Brain Dock, as well as Ningen Dock, is what you have when no disease has revealed yet. So it is not covered by insurance. If a disease was found by Brain Dock, however, further detailed exams or a treatment are covered by insurance.

What diseases can you find by Brain Dock?

Brain Dock checks the condition of cerebral blood vessels in detail. It can find your future risk of stroke or if a stroke has already been triggered. Brain tumors can be found by Brain Dock as well.

How often should we have Brain Dock?

Once in a few years would be recommended. Even if nothing was found by one Brain Dock, it does not mean you will not have any problem for years to come. It may be a good idea to have Brain Dock when you have something to worry about.
