Facilities at Our Clinic

  • Angiography Device


    An angiography machine can check blood vessels, and is used to perform each of our treatments (Cellgel method, Hybrid Laser method, PODD method, and PLDD method) by viewing the patient's body in real time through a fluoroscope and checking every detail on a monitor. Our clinic has brought in the latest model from the largest manufacturer in Japan.

  • Radiography Device (X-ray)


    The X-ray is used mainly to check the condition of the bones of the patient's back to hips. Meanwhile, we ask our affiliated clinic to perform MRI examinations. MRI is ideal for checking the condition of cartilage areas such as intervertebral discs and joints, as well as non-bone areas such as ligaments and nerves. By using X-rays for bones and MRI for other parts of the body, it is possible to make an accurate, thorough diagnosis.

  • MRI (Available at Osaka Clinic Only)


    This is a device that takes tomographic images of the body. Unlike X-ray examinations and CT examinations, it does not use radiation, so there is no need to worry about radiation exposure.
