Our diverse international team consists of board certified clinicians (radiologists, adult and pediatric cardiologists), some of whom have been amongst the pioneers of cardiovascular CT and MRI applications. With imaging experience spanning decades, some of our faculty have been in this field since the advent of advanced CT and MRI imaging of the chest, heart and vessels. Several of our faculty hold advanced doctorates (Ph.D.) in imaging research, and our director, Dr. Schoepf has been named the “Most Influential Radiology Researcher” by various media.
We take pride in providing comprehensive education by leaders in the field of cardiovascular imaging for our residents and fellows. Besides offering personal teaching and case review on a daily basis, we encourage our colleagues in training to participate in cutting-edge clinical research.
Cardiovascular research using the newest technological innovations is a major component of our Division. Our cutting edge equipment, novel scanning modes/sequences, advanced 4-dimensional image post-processing, quantitative and parametric imaging are all centered around three major goals: 1. Accurate and early detection of disease using novel imaging biomarkers. 2. Improving patient safety (e.g. radiation dose reduction and contrast media dose reduction) and imaging efficacy. 3. Transitioning these advances into clinical routine to provide optimal patient care.
