Marc Dweck

Last name

I am a cardiology specialist registrar at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and a British Heart Foundation Clinical Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh. I therefore spend roughly half of my time working as a clinical cardiologist and half performing research into different forms of cardiovascular disease. In particular I am interested in the use of modern non-invasive scanning techniques, which provide us with detailed pictures of the heart, providing novel insights into the processes underlying cardiovascular disease. Most recently this has involved using positron emission tomography (PET) to try and improve the prediction of heart attacks and to better understand the causes of heart valve disease, and using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate heart muscle thickening.
