Research: 
Dr. Kheradvar’s research is focused on cardiovascular engineering with emphasis on cardiac mechanics, cardiac imaging and cardiovascular devices. Some of the projects at his lab are: design and development of artificial heart valves (either surgical or percutaneous), multiscale modeling of congenital heart disease, development of a 3D Echo Particle Image Velocimetry system for assessment of right ventricle and devising new non-invasive indices for quantitative evaluation of diastolic dysfunction.
