The Volgenau School of Information Technology and Engineering is sponsoring a lecture on “Interventional Cardiovascular MRI,” presented by Elliot McVeigh, principal investigator with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, NIH, on Monday, March 19.

The lecture will begin at 3 p.m. in the Meese Conference Room of Mason Hall. A reception will follow the lecture; both are free and open to the public.

McVeigh, who is the inventor on eight patents, will address recent developments and the state of the art of a number of aspects of interventional cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

McVeigh received his undergraduate degree in physics and PhD in medical biophysics from the University of Toronto. He then joined the faculty of radiology at Johns Hopkins University, working with Elias Zerhouni to develop a research program in cardiac MRI. While at Hopkins, McVeigh developed the medical imaging program in the Department of Biomedical Engineering as part of a Whitaker Development Award.

In 1999, McVeigh joined the Laboratory of Cardiac Energetics at NIH to develop a research program in cardiovascular interventional MRI.
