The award-winning WVU HVI imaging cardiology team has innovated in the areas of echocardiographic diagnosis, artificial intelligence, and phenotyping. Recognized by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), the team was awarded the ASE Arthur E. Weyman Young Investigator s Award for work, entitled Cardiac Ultrasonic Fingerprinting: A Radiomics Approach for High-Throughput Feature Phenotyping of Dysfunctional Myocardium. The team has also won the ASE Richard Popp Excellence in Teaching Award and the NHLBI Big Data Analysis Challenge: Creating New Paradigms for Heart Failure Research. The HVI imaging team has developed a machine-learning algorithm to improve early diagnosis of patients with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. These advanced methods have been used to identify heart problems in their early stages, guide intervention efforts, and allow patients to reduce the likelihood and progression of heart failure developing or, in some cases, stop its progression. Such efforts have allowed HVI significant patient and procedural volume growth and expanded thought leadership across the region. WVU HVI cardiologists offer unmatched expertise in cardiac imaging procedures as well as access to several technologies that are not widely available, permitting enhanced early detection of abnormalities before symptoms occur.

The advanced cardiac imaging services at the HVI include: Cardiac computed tomography (CT), including 3mensio, CT-guided fractional flow reserve for coronary blood flow. The multidisciplinary team performs over 1,200 studies annually; Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is performed nearly 500 times annually for advanced quantitative perfusion mapping, tissue mapping, and quantification of four-dimensional flow; Advanced echocardiography, including trans-esophageal echocardiography, strain echocardiography, and supine-bicycle stress echocardiography. HVI performed over 22,000 studies at the Morgantown location alone a 30% increase over the previous 3 years. HVI was the region s first to employ magnetocardiography (MCG) or CardioFlux, to quickly diagnose myocardial ischemia or infarction in patients with symptoms of acute coronary syndrome by imaging the heart s naturally generated magnetic fields without the use of radiation, medications, or exercise in just 90 seconds.
