Timothy C. Wong, MD, MS

Assistant Professor of Medicine, Associate Director, UPMC Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Center, Pittsburgh, PA

Dr. Wong focuses his clinical and research efforts on multimodality cardiovascular imaging, combining his background in echocardiography and nuclear cardiology with advanced training in cardiac MRI. His imaging skillset was instrumental in helping establish the UPMC Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center at UPMC Presbyterian - one of approximately 30 such centers in the United States - where patients receive expert care from a multi-disciplinary team. Dr. Wong continues to maintain a general cardiology practice as well at the Magee Women's Hospital Heart Center. His research topics include the comparative effectiveness of cardiovascular imaging modalities, as well as the role of a novel cardiac MRI biomarker of diffuse myocardial fibrosis in cardiovascular diseases, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. His work has been published in major scientific journals, including Circulation and the European Heart Journal. He also participates as a site investigator in many multi-center research protocols, while serving as a scientific reviewer for numerous journals, a national grant review study section, and imaging society working groups.
