I am a Consultant Cardiac Physiologist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust in London, where I perform, teach, and research echocardiography. I am firm believer of the need to simplify the interpretation and reporting of echocardiography—my approach, refined through years of experience, is one that I am passionate about sharing with everyone who’s eager to learn.
