Description of Itmat Expertise

Novel MRI and echocardigraphic assessment of cardiomyopathy

Description of Research Expertise

I am interested in the application of novel cardiac MRI and echocardiography techniques to understand ventricular mechanics/remodeling in pathological states and cardiac MRI imaging of fibrosis.
