Pediatric Cardiology Research
Dr. Castellanos believes that research is vital to the advancement of the field of medicine. She has been involved in several research projects and has served as a mentor to aspiring researchers from high school students to medical residents. She is currently working on several projects with a focus on syncope, sudden cardiac death, and percutaneous pulmonary valves.
Dr. Dayan's interests include the evaluation and management of all ranges of congenital and acquired heart disease, from the simplest murmur to the most complex anatomic variations. His focuses primariy on cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in the pediatric population, as well as echocardiography, especially in utero diagnosis of congenital heart disease.
Dr. Ing's academic and research interests include; clinical trials of devices and stents involving congenital heart disease, outcomes research related to the pediatric cath lab, development of new devices, catheters, and delivery systems, techniques for congenital heart disease interventions; and fetal cardiac interventions.
He has additional interest in working with device companies and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to forward the approval of cardiac devices for pediatric heart patients, and also to educate the next generation of pediatric interventionists.
Dr. Yeh's conducts research in Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease and Fetal Cardiology. His clinical research involves echocardiography as a tool for the diagnosis and evaluation of congenital heart disease, including 3-dimensional imaging, strain or deformation imaging as a quantitative assessment of myocardial function. Dr. Yeh's Fetal Cardiology clinical research involves the diagnosis, management, and outcomes with prenatal diagnosis of congenital heart defects, including fetal echo parameters in predicting outcomes.
