Cardiology is a branch of medicine that studies the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system and treats conditions of the heart and blood vessels. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists. Cardiologists take care of pathologies linked to atherosclerosis, heart rhythm disorders, and vascular disorders in children and adults.
A patient is normally referred to a cardiologist by their general physician or family doctor, especially if this patient is at risk for cardiovascular illness and thus requires regular monitoring. Patients who are diabetic, prone to high blood pressure or hypercholesterolemia, overweight, or smokers, are particularly at risk of developing cardiovascular illness.

Diagnosis begins with an interview to determine the personal and family history of the patient. In addition, the cardiologist checks for possible symptoms such as shortness of breath or palpitations. The cardiologist studies the latest medical examinations of the patient, such as blood tests, and takes the pulse and blood pressure measurements. The heart is then examined to detect the eventual presence of a murmur, or heart failure. If necessary, additional tests may be prescribed, such as an angiogram, an arteriography, a CT scan, or an MRI.
