- My main interest involves the use of echocardiography and Doppler studies
to assess and quantify cardiovascular function noninvasively. I
work with both spontaneous diseases of animals and in models of animal and
human disease. We use these methods to evaluate a range of subjects
from horses, cattle and camelids, to dogs and cats, to rabbits, rats, and
mice. Integral to some of these studies are direct measurements of hemodynamics
and cardiac function by cardiac catheterization.
- A secondary interest involves studies of cardiac drugs in patients or in
- I also consult with a number of investigators here and in the Davis Heart & Lung
Institute at the Medical School regarding application of echocardiography
to their research studies.
