Researchers active in heart assessment and imaging research in the Trust are:
Dr Philip Kilner: cardiovascular magnetic resonance of congenital heart disease and valvular disease; cardiovascular fluid dynamics.
Dr Raad Mohiaddin: cardiovascular magnetic resonance in congenital heart disease; vascular imaging of the arterial wall and magnetic resonance angiography; imaging for interventional procedures and assessment of pulmonary arterial hypertension; quantitative blood flow measurements, flow visualization and wall stress/strain analysis.
Professor Dudley Pennell: Director of the Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Unit; research interests include development and use of magnetic resonance in cardiomyopathy; myocardial perfusion; coronary artery disease; myocardial iron measurements in thalassaemia.
Dr Sanjay Prasad: magnetic resonance imaging of cardiomyopathy;the role of genetics in predicting and treating heart failure and cardiomyopathy.
Professor Roxy Senior: development and evaluation of echocardiography techniques and in its application to cardiac syndromes
Professor Richard Underwood: nuclear cardiology of viable and hibernating myocardium in heart failure; pharmacological stress.
As a cross-cutting theme, our research in heart assessment and imaging underpins projects in many other disease areas. Information is available from our list of active research studies, in particular those in coronary heart disease and congenital heart disease and our publications web pages.
