Personal profile

Public Profile

Manages multiple clinical trials that utilise Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS), Virtual Histology (VH), Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) & Computed Tomography (CT) medical imaging. Maintains clinical records that comply with Good Clinical Practice guidelines. Attends and participates in external and internal scientific meetings. Performs quantitative and qualitative image analyses that include IVUS, VH-IVUS, OCT & CT.

Our Atherosclerosis Imaging Core Laboratory group aims to assist in developing new strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat atherosclerosis, the major cause of heart attacks and strokes. We use a variety of medical imaging technologies to measure plaque burden and assess plaque composition.
