Current Clinical Activities

  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for scar, strain imaging, and coronary venous anatomy in patients undergoing cardiac resynchronization therapy
  • Cardiac MRI for assessment of arrhythmias and survival in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCMR)
  • Cardiac MRI and noncardiac MRI for patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators and pacemakers
  • Cardiac MRI for assessment of ischemia, perfusion, and myocardial viability
  • Cardiac MRI for right ventricular imaging of function and fibrosis for patients with heart failure and pulmonary hypertension in conjunction with pulmonary artery pressure monitoring
  • Cardiac computed tomography (CT) scan for left atrial appendage evaluation in patients with atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter, including those undergoing catheter ablation
  • Body surface electrical mapping with the ECVUE Mapping System in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)
  • Body surface electrical mapping with the ECVUE Mapping System in CRT
  • Cardiac MRI for scar evaluation in patients undergoing catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia with application of the wideband sequence for late gadolinium enhancement
  • Acquisition and installation of new MRI pulse sequences for cardiac imaging through sequence sharing programs
  • PET fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) imaging for identification of inflammation and scarring in cardiac sarcoidosis, including patients at risk for arrhythmias
  • Assessment of cardiac viability and risk of arrhythmias using SPECT and PET
  • Use of I-123 MIBG to assess myocardial sympathetic innervation
  • Technetium pyrophosphate scan to identify cardiac amyloid subtypes
