Dr. Ashwin Venkateshvaran

His doctoral thesis explored echocardiographic applications in the setting of mitral valve disease, and his current research interests include the utility of non-invasive coronary flow reserve and left atrial strain imaging in the setting of heart failure. He is well-published, has presented his work at both national and international echo forums, and continues to mentor sonographers both in India and Sweden.
Ashwin is passionate about sonographer education and sonographer-driven research, and believes that well-trained sonographers, in a supporting role to supervising cardiologists, can help promote rapid and cost-effective care to patients in India.
