Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging (CT-MRI)
The Scripps Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging program consists of board-certified cardiologists and radiologists knowledgeable in all aspects of cardiac imaging. The program at Scripps Memorial Hospital was started by Dr. Jorge Gonzalez (Cardiology) and Dr. George Wesbey (Radiology) in the summer of 2016, growing to over 3000 studies a year including all aspects of Cardiac CT and MRI.
The Scripps Advanced Imaging Program provides support to various sub-specialties including Heart Failure and Interventional Cardiology, Cardiothoracic surgeons, General Cardiology and Cardiac Electrophysiologists. The program plays a pivotal role in supporting the different specialty clinics within Cardiology, including Aorta Imaging, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, Cardio-Oncology, Amyloidosis, and heart failure programs.
Currently the team provides service to Scripps Health, Scripps Clinic and Kaiser San Diego Cardiologists. The Imaging Program is an extraordinary example of successful multi-disciplinary management where Cardiology & Radiology co-exist in line of better outcomes for the patient.
