Japan has the second highest number of MRI units in the OECD after the United States. However, the number of radiologists per million radiologists is the lowest level among OECD countries.

Therefore, the number of Japanese radiologists required for interpretation of MRI, including cardiac MRI, is absolutely insufficient.
The use of CASIS software has dramatically reduced the time required for cardiac MRI analysis. CASIS software has greatly accelerated our cardiac MRI research.
