Professor Chiribiri’s main clinical and research interest is cardiovascular imaging, with a focus on cardiovascular MRI. His areas of expertise include the assessment of cardiac structure and function and tissue characterisation using non-invasive imaging, and on the application of machine learning techniques for the acquisition and interpretation of the scans.
In particular, Amedeo has developed several techniques that enable the non-invasive assessment of myocardial blood flow (perfusion) and the non-invasive differential diagnosis of different causes of chest pain.
