Dr. Carroll is an interventional cardiologist with clinical and investigative interests related to image guidance, structural/valvular heart disease interventions, clinical trials, and using advanced cardiac 3D imaging and graphics to understand device-anatomy interactions. He has many collaborators in interventional cardiology, neurology, cardiac imaging, imaging sciences, cardiac surgery, and the health services outcomes group at the University of Colorado. Dr. Carroll has recently co-edited with John G. Webb, MD of Vancouver the first textbook on “Structural Heart Disease Interventions” and is working with Ziyad Hijazi, MD to start a novel tablet-based medical and community journal on structural heart disease.
