This research group, within the cardiovascular imaging research in our country, is one of the most dynamic and productive groups. Supported by a solid healthcare activity that encompasses the different fields of cardiovascular imaging, such as echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, it has a strong teaching and research projection. Proof of this are the numerous publications in national and international scientific journals and books, as well as their presence in the most important national and international congresses, presenting their own research papers or participating as moderators, speakers, and organisers. The group’s research focuses on developing the clinical application of novel imaging techniques, trying to discover their advantages and limitations, in order to improve the diagnosis, management, and treatment of both cardiological and extra-cardiological patients. The collaboration with other research groups, both cardiological and from other specialities within the IdISSC is noteworthy.
