What Makes Us Special

​​Our Experience​​​

The Echocardiography Lab at Peter Munk Cardiac Centre is the busiest laboratory in Canada, handling over 20,000 cases each year.  We assess a large variety of heart conditions that reflect the unique complexity of our patient population, including congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease and heart failure.

Our lab works with many UHN doctors and outpatient clinics to provide our patients with the best care possible. We play an integral role in the medical care, as well as the planning of non-invasive and surgical interventions, of our patients. ​​​​

Our Research​​

Scientists at Peter Munk Cardiac Centre are pushing the boundaries of research in heart failure, prevention, and regenerative therapies.

We're pioneers in the use of transesoph​ageal echocardiography, three-dimensional echocardiography, and strain imaging in clinical decision making.  Three-dimensional echocardiography is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique that allows detailed anatomical and functional assessment of the heart. It has applications in chamber quantification, valvular heart disease and congenital heart disease assessment. Strain imaging is another non-invasive method that provides valuable information for decisions in cardiology and cardiac surgery.
