We are excited to announce that Madhav Swaminathan, MD, MBBS, has been selected as the Feigenbaum Lecturer for the 2015 Scientific Sessions of the American Society of Echocardiography in Boston.
This prestigious honor is given to a young investigator who has provided a significant contribution to research in the field of echocardiography, with great potential to continue at a high level of achievement. It is named in honor of Dr. Harvey Feigenbaum, hailed as the “Father of Echocardiography,” who in 1963 took an unused echoencephalography machine and recorded the first cardiac images. Twelve years later, he founded the American Society of Echocardiography.
While the biggest names in echocardiography have delivered this lecture since 2000, this is the first time it goes to a cardiac anesthesiologist. Congratulations, Dr. Swaminathan, on this incredible achievement!
