Italian to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Health Care / TYPE OF TESTS
Italian term or phrase:gino-test
Appears in the heading of a list of things that a medical insurance policy covers - we have a list of treatments headed 'DONNA (gino test)' [inc smear tests & mammograms] and another headed 'UOMO (andro test)' [listing completely different tests to those for women] . From what I understand gino simply meansreferring to women and andro means referring to men. Try as I might I can't find any use of these terms in English texts and am wondering if they can be left out altogether.
I've been very good and put them in as seperate terms, tho I do wonder whether this is strictly necessary in this case.........
Or for the UK, women's/men's health check might be better. "Wellness" is a bit of a buzz word. In any case, it's clear that this is referring to preventive health screening rather than investigating clinical symptoms and signs.
