Many of the Heart Institute’s clinical researchers also conduct basic bench investigation. They take what they learn from patients back to their laboratories to better understand the underlying pathology of heart disease and to find better ways to treat it. These efforts result in transformative treatments; they are recognized with funding to expand their studies.
Heart Institute researchers are working with our Imaging Center to use cardiac MRI to identify early heart muscle disease in children with muscular dystrophy. These children develop dilated left ventricles, and by the time they experience symptoms, it’s too late. Early detection could result in better treatment and outcomes.
Our researchers are also using echo imaging to detect novel identifiers for heart muscle disease and fetal imaging that will help predict outcomes when a fetus is diagnosed with heart problems.
