Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My main research continues to be in the field of echocardiography. Several areas of research are currently being pursued:

1. Transesophageal echocardiography - Its value and limitation as a diagnostic and monitoring tool.

2. Exercise/stress echocardiography - A relatively new research area using echocardiography together with treadmill testing or with pharmacologic stress testing (such as dobutamine) to evaluate ischemia during stress.

3. Echocardiographic evaluation of LV wall motion and LV function - Several studies are ongoing, looking at left ventricular cardiac output calculated non-invasively.
