    From Dr. Krishnamurthy

    I am the director for research at the EB Singleton Department of Pediatric Radiology at Texas Children's Hospital, and am primarily responsible for the development and oversight of our departmental intramural and extramural research portfolio. I am also director of the cardiovascular imaging program at Texas Children’s Hospital. My interests include congenital heart disease, pediatric vascular disease, adapting MR sequences for free-breathing acquisition in sedated children, adapting CT sequences for low-dose acquisition in unsedated children, dynamic contrast enhanced MR angiography, advanced 3D image post-processing, and imaging of vascular malformations and diffuse liver disease.
