Dr. Robert Levine is an expert in cardiac imaging and valvular heart disease. Dr. Levine's career focuses on using imaging techniques to explore mechanisms of valvular heart disease in order to develop and test more specific and effective therapies. This mission encompasses diseases of excess valve motion (prolapse, obstructive systolic anterior motion) and deficient valve tissue relative to the remodeling ventricle after heart attack. He devotes substantial time to guiding the career development of emerging investigators both in Boston and as part of the Leducq MITRAL Transatlantic Network.
