Valley Health System has created a cardiovascular imaging program and hired Dr. Himanshi Gupta as its director.
Gupta joins Valley from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he served as the co-director of the Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Center. He was also a tenured faculty member at the UAB departments of Medicine and Radiology.
The new program will provide integrated care to cardiac patients and will use cardiovascular imaging, clinical research and education in conjunction with Valley’s Diagnostic Imaging department. Gupta will spearhead the integration of these imaging technologies into Valley's preventive cardiology, structural heart disease, cardiothoracic surgery and electrophysiology programs.
He will also collaborate with Valley’s cardiac specialists and radiologists to provide early diagnosis of cardiac conditions.
