Introducing CVIC

Early detection of heart disease
Heart disease is the second leading cause of death in Japan after cancer, and the need for early detection and treatment is increasing. We are working with a wide range of radiologists and cardiologists every day,  to make the CVIC test useful to as many patients.We will continue to contribute to the advancement of medical care in Japan ,through the spread of cardiac imaging and further cutting-edge technological innovation.

About CVIC?

The cardiovascular imaging clinic opened in November 2009 as an imaging diagnostic center. It uses advanced medical equipment MRI / CT to visualize the inside of the human body in 3D. This is the first facility in Japan And also rare in the world.

In 2014, the examination and the medical care department were made independent and started as a medical corporation CVIC.

Early diagnosis of heart disease is possible by
seeing and examining

Among the organs of the body, it is especially difficult to image the heart, the technique of which has not been established until recently. However, in the past few years, advances in diagnostic imaging technology have made it possible to diagnose the heart in 3D or moving images, enabling early detection of heart disease.

Advanced cardiac imaging in Japan

in Japan, the use of MRI, especially cardiac imaging has not been widely used. This is because the technology is so advanced and labor intensive that almost no engineers can use it. As a result, many people die of sudden heart disease one day without even knowing they have heart disease.

We will provide the latest and best cardiac imaging for you

The Cardiac Imaging Center of CVIC was first initiated by Dr. Masahiro Terashima, an authority on cardiac imaging in Japan. After 7 years’ clinical study and research on cardiac MRI technology in Stanford University, U.S., Dr. Masahiro found that the most up-to-date cardiac imaging technology could realize early diagnosis of heart disease. In order to popularize his research achievements and promote this advanced technology, Dr. Masahiro returned to his homeland in 2009 and set up Japan’s first specialized cardiac imaging center in Tokyo so as to commit himself to the borderless cause of diagnosing patients globally with state-of-the-art imaging diagnostic technology.

We will quickly respond to clinical needs

The imaging department of a general hospital must handle inspections in all departments, not just the heart department. Therefore, it is difficult to put the examination heart first, which is difficult and takes a long time. CVIC considers finding out about heart symptoms quickly, the heart department puts it first.

The accumulation of achievements further improve our technical level

Many cases sent from general hospitals are difficult to check and diagnose. By accurately performing 2680 cardiac MRI examinations and image diagnosis every year, the technical level and judgment level of CVIC are improving every day. CVIC's cardiac imaging technology and high image quality have won praise from other hospitals.

As a new CVIC group

The first floor was established as the inspection department of the "Medical Clinic Iidabashi" of the CIVIC Group. adopted the latest machines MRI 2 and CT1.


The clinical ward of the fourth floor CVIC group has been opened as "Iidabashi Heart Clinic". In a spacious space, an environment is created where doctors can carefully check and accurately check images.


The new CVIC Group on both the first and fourth floors will provide more accurate testing and diagnosis.

Characteristics of CVIC medical care
