This focused issue on “Vascular Imaging” is edited by Dr. Brian B. Ghoshhajra, from Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA; and Dr. Sandeep Hedgire, from Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Dr. Brian B. Ghoshhajra specializes in the use of advanced cross-sectional imaging techniques (including Ultrasonography, CT, and MRI) to non-invasively diagnose diseases of the blood vessels and heart. His clinical interests include advanced non-invasive imaging for coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular and venous disease, and congenital heart disease. He is board certified by the American Board of Radiology and the Certification Board of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, and has published numerous scientific articles and book chapters on cardiovascular imaging.

Dr. Sandeep Hedgire is a Diagnostic Radiology Specialist in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated with honors in 2004. Having more than 15 years of diverse experiences, especially in DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGY, His clinical interests include cardiac imaging, cardiac radiology, vascular radiology, cardiac computed tomography (Cardiac CT) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (Cardiac MRI).
