OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
"I have been blessed (...) to make a number of observations for the first time"
"I became involved with echocardiography at its beginning: I have been blessed with the opportunity to make a number of observations for the first time. The research I performed that is likely the highlight of my years was the initial demonstration of the ability to image myocardial perfusion with contrast echocardiography. During preclinical experiments with contrast we injected CO2 into the coronary artery of dogs and visualised intense myocardial opacification. Subsequently we had the opportunity to advance the field by achieving myocardial opacification by intravenous injection of contrast agents. These findings opened up the field of the potential to assess myocardial perfusion and coronary artery disease by myocardial contrast echocardiography"
