Kenneth C. Bilchick
Primary AppointmentAssistant Professor,
- MD, Johns Hopkins University
Cardiac resynchronization, cardiac MRI, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, ICDs
Dr. Bilchick’s research includes:
· the role of cardiac magnetic resonance therapy in patients with heart failure referred for cardiac resynchronization therapy.
· the application of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging to patients undergoing cardiac resynchronization therapy.
· regional stress-induced gene expression changes in cardiac dyssynchrony, hemodynamic effects of HF-associated alterations in troponin I phosphorylation, pulmonary vein isolation for atrial fibrillation, and assessment of regional strain and function in heart failure with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) myocardial tissue tagging and/or strain encoding (SENC).
