Challenge image diagnosis with cardiovascular examination

“Challenge to CV imaging”

At CVIC, we perform a cardiovascular examination before diagnostic imaging by CT or MRI.

We perform medical interviews, medical examinations, and electrocardiograms in all cases, and echocardiograms as necessary. I think this point is also a little different from a normal diagnostic imaging center.


The most important reason for us to see a doctor on the day of the test, not just the test, is to visit the clinic.Exam reservation ~ visitto see if anything significant has changed in the meantime.

Cardiovascular disease can change in a short period of time. In particular, if you have symptoms that you are concerned about, there is a possibility that heart disease is present and becoming more severe. In fact, during the few days between the referral doctor's place and the visit to our clinic, the symptoms became more severe. There was also a case of hospitalization.


Cardiology examinations at diagnostic imaging centers may seem like an afterthought to diagnostic imaging.

but,"Cardiovascular examination" at CVICteeth,Taking on the challenge of diagnostic imaging (CT/MRI/echocardiography)doing.

In other words, I come to examine patients with the idea of making a diagnosis through physical examination before CT, MRI, and echocardiographic examinations. The more serious you are about this challenge, the longer the consultation time will be. However, there is also the effect that the pretreatment for the examination and the examination itself proceed smoothly by talking directly with the patient who came to the examination with some kind of anxiety.

Luckily, compared to regular cardiology outpatient clinics, CVIC has a limited number of appointments per day, so we have a little more time.

Of course, there are cases where the diagnosis is accurate, but there are also cases where unexpected lesions are pointed out by diagnostic imaging.

As a cardiologist, I feel very frustrated and sorry that I could not find it at the time of the examination, but at the same time, it is also a moment to reaffirm the wonders of cardiac imaging.

We hope that everyone will experience cardiovascular examinations at CVIC.
