Pediatric cardiac MRIs

Cardiac MRI is a recommended option for patients who require analyses of dynamic cardiac flows, wall motion, ventricular volume, and ventricular function. Children's pediatric-trained radiologists work in concert with cardiologists to the tests. Imaging expert and pediatric cardiologist, Kelly Gleason Han, MD is one of a handful of cardiologists in the U.S. with a specialty in cardiac imaging, earned through a two-year, advanced imaging fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital / Harvard Medical School. Team members' expertise and training means tests can be obtained quickly (reducing the need for children to be still for prolonged periods) and be performed using less radiation.

Cardiovascular publications continued

Research studies are ongoing in all areas of the hospital and clinics. The cardiovascular team is actively publishing research and articles. In the past ten years, more than 40 articles have been published in peer reviewed publications.
