You might not know this, but February 10-16th is Cardiovascular Professionals Week! CVP week, as it’s also called, is an awareness event put on by the Alliance of Cardiovascular Professionals to bring light to all of the work put into the field of cardiovascular medicine by the people who work in it. The theme for 2019 is “The Beat Goes On,” which is dedicated to the professionals who work tirelessly every day to keep hearts beating stronger for longer!
CVP week aims to bring awareness to heart conditions, different cardiovascular imaging procedures used to diagnose heart conditions, the innovative treatments for heart diseases and, of course, to thank the many people who make it all happen—the cardiovascular professionals. We’re here to celebrate and pay tribute to those who make our hearts go pitter patter, especially the cardiovascular radiologists here at Bay Imaging Consultants!
The Importance of Imaging Procedures
Imaging is an essential part of heart health, and procedures like cardiac CT and coronary CT angiography (CCTA) make it possible earlier detect possible cardiovascular issues. These tests are non-invasive and don't require recovery time, which make them an increasingly beneficial option for people with a variety of cardiovascular conditions.
Cardiac Care Innovation
It seems, at times, that the field of cardiac care moves at the speed of light, with determined specialists, doctors, researchers, nurses, and more seeking to learn something new every day in order to provide the best care possible to patients. For this, we are always grateful to have a team of radiologists that are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology, who are dedicated to keeping up with the latest movements in medicine, and work hard to maintain this prestigious accreditation every year.
We’re Thankful for our Cardiovascular Radiologists
Here at BICRAD, many of our board-certified radiologists are specialists in cardiac CT and are determined to give the most professional and best care possible to their patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. While we think one week for them simply isn’t enough, we’re always happy to share our deepest gratitude and pay tribute to our cardiac heroes. We’re very lucky to have a diverse team with years of experience in the field of cardiovascular imaging.
Happy Cardiovascular Professionals Week and, as always, thank you for all that you do!
