Advancing Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The Advanced CV Imaging Lab develops and evaluates novel MRI pulse sequences and techniques to improve the clinical utility of CMR imaging. The current clinical focus of the research is on myocardial perfusion imaging, imaging of myocardial fibrosis and ventricular remodeling following myocardial infarction. The laboratory includes graduate engineering students as well as clinical cardiovascular imaging fellows to bring new advances into clinical practice.
Dr. Salerno has been in the field of MRI for 25 years and holds multiple patents related to the development and application of novel pulse sequences for MRI. He has received numerous research awards, and has published extensively in the areas of MRI, cardiovascular MRI and multi-modality cardiovascular imaging. His research is supported by the AHA and the National Institutes of Health. He is an invited reviewer for over 10 cardiovascular and imaging journals.
