About DCVI
The Diagnostic Cardiovascular Imaging section of UCLA Radiology is actively involved in the development and application of new techniques for detecting and evaluating cardiovascular disease processes with MRI and CT. We work closely with industrial partners, including Siemens Medical Solutions, using state-of-the-art MRI and CT scanners to perform specialized clinical studies, and to conduct research in a variety of areas including heart failure, congenital heart disease, pulmonary vascular disease, abdominal vascular imaging, extremity and and whole-body imaging. Due to the unique patient mix at both the Mattel Children's Hospital and the Ahmanson UCLA Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center, we image a wide range of highly complex congenital cardiovascular disorders in both children and adults.

The members of our research group include attending radiologists, MR and CT physicists/engineers, bioengineering and basic-science researchers, and clinical and research fellows, whose diverse backgrounds bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the group. We have experienced MR and CT technologists who have specialized training in cardiovascular imaging. Furthermore, we maintain strong links with a number of collaborating research groups, both within the US, and internationally.

Our goal is to make continued contributions to the field of cardiovascular imaging through high-caliber research with advanced image-acquisition and analysis techniques and the implementation of novel clinical applications. We will continue to provide the highest standard of care to our patients and to deliver quality education to our physicians-in-training via specialized residency, fellowship and graduate-student programs.
