Dr. Dueck’s research interests include novel approaches to cardiovascular imaging, the evaluation of novel percutaneous or endovascular devices or therapeutics, and outcomes following cardiovascular interventions. He has done extensive research into peripheral plaque characterization and flow independent MRI Imaging for patients with peripheral arterial disease. This work has generated multiple patents. Dr. Dueck is the co-founder and director of Magellan Biomedical, a medical device company that seeks to enhance navigation during cardiovascular interventions.
