Research

Description of Research Expertise:

I am interested in the development of novel techniques for cardiovascular imaging by MRI and CT, including pulse sequence programming and post-processing algorithms. My current main research which is supported by a 1 million dollar NIH grant is on the high resolution imaging of myocardial damage by MRI, in the context of cardiac ablation therapy for arrhythmia (atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia). This involves the development of new free breathing ECG-gated pulse sequences to acquire the data, post-processing algorithms to extract abnormal signal on MR images, semi-automatic methods for generation of 3-D representations of myocardial damage, and techniques for integration with endocardial mapping techniques. I am also interested in developing new techniques to assess aortic compliance from ECG-gated dynamic CTs, as well as new techniques to assess left atrial function from ECG-gated CT and MRI.
