My Biography & Research


Sean Lang, MD, joined the Heart Institute in 2018. He was formerly at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. He specializes in advanced cardiac imaging, specifically cardiac MRI, as well as transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography. Dr. Lang’s research interests involve advanced imaging markers for assessing congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathies. His other research interests include appropriate clinical use of echocardiograms. Dr. Lang previously trained at The Heart Institute and was excited to rejoin the group as faculty. He is a member of the American Society of Echocardiography and the North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging.
