To establish The University of Illinois at Chicago, Division of Cardiology as a nationally recognized Center of Excellence in the evaluation and management of cardiovascular disease.
Our Clinical Programs
Our faculty has been at the center of cardiac electrophysiology innovation. We offer unique, advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients with atrial fibrillation, ventricular arrhythmias, and other electrophysiology issues. Our faculty is continually innovating to improve current therapeutic arrhythmia technologies and introduce new techniques and tools to make curative technologies safer and more effective.
We utilize a multidisciplinary disease management approach to care of patients with early to advanced stage heart failure. Our program strives to meet our patients medical and non-medical needs, employing a team of nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, social workers and physicians trained in the management of heart failure.
Our CMR program has rapidly grown to be one of the highest volume clinical programs in the region receiving referrals from throughout the Chicagoland area. Our 1.5 and 3 Tesla scanners produce images of superb quality and resolution, providing a detailed assessment of the anatomy and function of the heart.
In partnership with the Cancer Center, this program provides evaluation of patients being treated with potentially cardiotoxic regimen using speckle tracking echocardiography. The goal of screening is to detect pre-clinical changes in myocardial function allowing early institution of cardioprotective therapies.
