Yale Cardiovascular Medicine Grand Rounds "Chasing the invisible: PET versus invasive coronary testing for the diagnosis of coronary microvascular disease"
Attila Feher, MD, PhD is a second-year cardiology fellow at the Yale Cardiovascular Medicine training program. After graduating from medical school at the University of Debrecen in Hungary, Dr. Feher completed his PhD at his medical school institution studying how microvessels behave in obesity and diabetes mellitus. After finishing his internal medicine residency at Cornell University, prior to starting his cardiology fellowship, he spent two years at the Yale Translational Research Imaging Center (Y-TRIC) to learn multimodality imaging techniques used for the investigation of the coronary microcirculation. His most recent work has been focusing on the interaction between autoimmunity and the microcirculation. Dr. Feher hopes that by studying the interaction between the immune system and the microcirculation by using molecular imaging and multimodality imaging techniques, he will be able to discover better tools for the in vivo assessment of coronary microvascular disease.
