Current Research and Scholarly Interests Myocardial bridges (MB) with associated upfront atherosclerotic lesions are common findings on coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA). Abnormal septal wall motion in exercise echocardiography (EE) may to be associated with MB. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is considered the gold standard for the detection of MB. We investigate whether CTA is comparable to IVUS for the assessment of MB and upstream plaques in symptomatic patients with suspicion for MB raised by EE.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests As a general pediatric radiologist with a biophysical background I am interested in mentoring projects in all of pediatric radiology except radiology of the central nervous system. My specific research areas in the past have been pediatric cardiac, urogenital, and oncologic imaging. A specific area of interest has been measurements in pediatric radiology especially for evaluation of normal versus abnormal size of structures, organs etc.
