Dr. Madhu's clinical practice comprises noninvasive cardiac imaging (including echocardiography, cardiac CT, and cardiac MRI) and general cardiology. His general-cardiology clinic treats all adult patients, including those with congenital heart disease, valvular disease, and coronary-artery disease.


Research Summary/Interests

In addition to cardiac imaging, Dr. Madhu is interested in computer-enhanced acoustic diagnostic techniques. He has partnered in biomedical engineering research to improve stethoscope technology, and is currently involved in clinical studies to determine whether preliminary diagnosis of coronary and carotid blockages can be accurately determined using an electronic acoustic recording instrument.
