Executive Director, Carma Center
Associate Professor, University of Utah
Salt Lake City, USA
Dr Marrouche will present his team's work at the Comprehensive Arrhythmia Research and Management Center (CARMA) in introducing MRI imaging into management of arrhythmias. Over the last 6 years MRI imaging became an integrated part of the clinical arrhythmia management protocols at the University of Utah through the work at CARMA. Dr Marrouche will detail the present and future role of MRI imaging and image analysis in clinical cardiac electrophysiology.
Dr. Nassir F. Marrouche received his medical degree from the Medical School at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. He has completed several internships at numerous locations including: infectious disease, pulmonary medicine and vascular surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, General surgery at the University of Bristol, England, in cardiac surgery at the West Roxbury VA at Harvard Medical School; and in general cardiology and electrophysiology at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle.
Following his internships, Dr. Marrouche received a fellowship in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at the University of Wurzburg. The Cleveland Foundation then offered him a fellowship in the Section of Pacing and Electrophysiology in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine.
After spending time at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Marrouche accepted a faculty position at the University of Utah, where he is now an Associate Professor of Medicine, and the Executive Director of the Comprehensive Arrhythmia Research & Management Center (CARMA). He is also the Director of the Electrophysiology Lab, the Atrial Fibrillation Program.
Dr. Marrouche's research interests include the pathophysiology and new imaging modalities for treatment of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.
