Amit R. Patel, MD

Assistant Professor of Medicine and Radiology

Co-Director, Cardiac Magnetic Resonance and Computed Tomography

Co-Director, Adult Congenital Heart Disease Clinic

Dr. Amit Patel is a cardiologist who uses advanced imaging techniques such as cardiac magnetic resonance (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) to provide individualized therapies for patients with heart disease. He has a specific clinical interest in the care of adults with congenital heart disease and those with infiltrative heart disorders, such as cardiac sarcoidosis and amyloidosis.

Dr. Patel’s research is focused on leveraging the strengths of various cardiac imaging tests to provide precision care of patients with heart disease.  He is particularly interested in the following:

  • The detection of early abnormalities in heart function in patients with systemic disorders such as sarcoidosis, sickle cell anemia, and amyloidosis
  • The development of more accurate non-invasive tests to detect significant coronary artery disease
  • Improving quantification of heart function to better guide treatment in patients with pulmonary hypertension and congenital heart disease
