To prevent sudden death
Cardiac diagnostic imaging
-It is possible to prevent sudden death-
Until recently, early detection of heart disease was difficult.
Nowadays, advances in diagnostic imaging such as CT and MRI have made it possible to detect heart disease at an early stage. Cardiac CT and MRI will bring dramatic progress in the diagnosis of future heart diseases.
Comparison of heart tests
Electrocardiography and chest x-rays do not allow you to visualize the heart itself, so you miss many signs of heart disease.
Advanced cardiac imaging
・ Take a detailed photograph of the heart using magnets and radio waves and display it in 3D.
・Can be taken without contrast medium
・ Ideal for heart docks
・ Take a detailed tomographic photograph of the heart using magnets and radio waves and display it in 3D.
・ No exposure
・ Can be taken without contrast medium
・ Ideal for heart docks
・ It is possible to diagnose the movement of the heart and the degree of clogging of blood vessels in three dimensions (3D).
・ Advanced technology is required and can only be examined in a limited number of hospitals
・ Even an amateur can understand the condition of blood vessel blockage by cardiac CT or cardiac MRI
Advanced diagnostic imaging such as CT and MRI can detect signs of heart disease without subjective symptoms.
You can see that the blood vessels are narrowing.
What is CVIC Heart Dock?
The Cardiac Imaging Clinic Iidabashi (CVIC) since opening has an track record of about 27,000 examinations and an average of 280 monthly cardiac MRI examinations in the five years.
(1) With reliable technology, abundant achievements
CVIC's Cardiac Dock uses cardiac MRI, which is free of radiation exposure and does not use contrast media. You can take a 3D image of your heart just by sleeping.
The technique of taking 3D images of the coronary arteries surrounding the heart with cardiac MRI is extremely difficult, and the facilities that can perform stable examinations are limited in the world. Based on its abundant clinical experience, CVIC uses the latest technology to carry out body-friendly tests.
(2)On the inspect date the doctor will be explain for you while looking at the 3D heart image
On the inspect day, a cardiologist will explain in detail while looking at the three-dimensional image of the heart. We don't just only return to the hospital to explain the results or mail the report.
If a highly urgent heart abnormality is found, it can be referred to a hospital on the same day and treatment can be started immediately. In fact, there are many people who have survived such sudden cardiac death.
(3) Detailed diagnosis by a cardiac expert doctor
After the inspect, an experienced specialist will make a detailed diagnosis.Doctor is a cardiac expert under the guidance of Director Masahiro Terashima, who has experience at Stanford University in the United States.
If any abnormalities are found as a result, it is possible to promptly refer them to a leading hospital with which they work and immediately move to treatment.
(4) The heart and brain can be examined on the same day
There are many common MRI brain and heart examinations that do not use contrast media. By combining the two tests in one, it is possible to efficiently detect multiple diseases such as stroke and myocardial infarction caused by arteriosclerosis.
Cerebral blood vessels can be safely imaged without contrast media without pain, and cerebral aneurysms and cerebral blood vessel stenosis can be detected. In addition, small cerebral infarctions and brain tumors can be detected from detailed images of the surface and cross section of the brain.
(5) Inspection time is about 2 hours, and inspection is possible even on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
Even if you are too busy to take the test, we can handle it on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. In addition, it can be completed in a short time of about 2 to 3 hours from the visit to the explanation of the test results.
Collaborative hospitals: University of Tokyo Hospital, Keio University Hospital, Tokyo Women's Medical University Hospital, Tokyo Medical and Dental University Hospital, Juntendo University Medical School Juntendo Clinic, Cardiovascular Institute Hospital, NTT East Kanto Hospital, Tokyo Welfare Pension hospital
At CVIC,a wide variety of heart disease cases and has a track record of early detection of intractable and bizarre diseases, enabling diagnosis of heart disease. We have experienced and talented staff for that purpose.
As a medical institution specializing in cardiac imaging, Iidabashi (CVIC), recommends a cardiac dock to prevent sudden cardiac death for as many people as possible.
