Professor Reza Ravazi
Vice President (Research) at King’s College London and the Director of Research at King’s Health Partners

Professor Razavi qualified in Medicine at St. Bartholomew’s Medical School in 1988. He later trained in Paediatrics and Paediatric Cardiology and started a career in research. Prior to becoming Vice President (Research), Professor Razavi held the post of Head of Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering (Jan 2007 – March 2017) and Assistant Principal (Research & Innovation) (July 2015 – March 2017).

The main focus of Professor Reza Razavi’s research is imaging and biomedical engineering related to cardiovascular disease. One area of focus is cardiac MRI in relation to congenital heart disease, electrophysiology and heart failure, image guided intervention, XMR (X-ray and MRI) guided cardiac catheterisation and methodological advances to move to faster 3-Dimensional cardiac imaging.

His group was the first to perform MRI-guided cardiac catheterisation in patients and  the first to carry out entirely MR-guided cardiovascular interventions. In congenital heart disease, he has developed techniques for three-dimensional imaging as well as physiological assessment using flow measurements. Using MR guided cardiac catheterisation his group has developed new techniques of measuring pulmonary vascular resistance and compliance.
