- coronary artery disease and its effects on the myocardium
- inflammatory heart disease
- assessment of cardiac pathophysiology in heart and lung transplantation.
She has collaborated on important clinical trials such as:
- CVLPRIT - assessing how CMR works in managing bystander coronary artery disease in heart attack patients
- MR-INFORM - looking at the value of stress CMR compared to invasive pressure wire studies in managing stable angina patients.
Dr Wong lectures on her specialisms to a mix of undergraduate and postgraduate students.
