Professional History

I joined the faculty in the Department of Cardiology at Boston Children's Hospital in 1994. My major clinical and research interests focus on diagnostic imaging of congenital heart disease, including anatomic and functional assessment of complex malformations using echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging. I established and developed the cardiac MRI program and am currently Chief of the Noninvasive Cardiac Imaging Division at Boston Children’s Hospital. My clinical practice focuses on management of patients with complex congenital heart disease and pediatric cardiac tumors. My research has concentrated on the development of echocardiographic and cardiac MRI methods to define quantitative functional and morphometric predictors of course and outcome in native and postoperative congenital cardiac lesions. More recently, my group’s research efforts have concentrated on 3 areas: 1) Development of quantitative methods to assess the right ventricle in patients with congenital heart disease; 2) Prediction of adverse clinical outcomes in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). Our group has published extensively on this topic and is now leading an international multicenter cohort (INDICATOR), which aims to identify risk factors for death and sustained ventricular tachycardia in late survivors of repaired TOF; and 3) Quality improvement in the domain of noninvasive imaging.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
