Initial research investigated cardiac blood flow and function following bypass surgery. More recent HF studies include markers of poor prognosis in heart failure. In endocarditis we are looking at the associations of the disease, prevention strategies and therapies. We have shown that cardiac CT improves surgical options and have looked at the diagnostic options for atypical organisms.
