Introduction

José F Rodríguez Palomares graduated in 1999 from the University Miguel Hernández (Alicante, Spain) with an Extraordinary Award Bachelor of Medicine. After that, he performed the cardiology training at Vall Hebrón Hospital (Barcelona, Spain) until 2004.

He performed an imaging Fellowship at the Imaging Department of Vall Hebrón Hospital from 2004-2006 by the supervision of Dr. Arturo Evangelista. Later, he did a research fellowship at the Department of MRI and Cardiac CT at Northwestern Memorial Hospital (Chicago. Illinois. USA) from 2006-2007.

Since 2007, he had a position as an attending physician at the Cardiology Department of Vall Hebrón Hospital, being attached at the Imaging Unit directed by Dr. Arturo Evangelista and involved in echocardiography, cardiac-MR and cardiac CT. He is also an attending physician at the CMR/CT unit at Clínica-Pilar St Jordi, Clínica Quirón, Clínica Dexeus-Quiron and Clínica Sagrada Familia (all of them located in Barcelona).

He has also been responsible of the supervision of the residents and international Fellows in the field of CMR and CT at Vall Hebrón Hospital. He has also participated in all research projects in CMR/CT and published several papers in different journals (see attached publications). He got his PhD in 2016 by the Autonomous University of Barcelona with his doctoral thesis: Dynamic changes of infarct size and microvascular obstruction after contrast administration assessed by cardiac magnetic resonance and its influence in left ventricular remodeling.

He is an associate professor of the Autonomous University of Barcelona teaching 4th year medical students.
Since 2015, he is a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (FESC).

He has also been vice chair of the Working Group on CMR and CT of the Spanish Society of Cardiology from 2010-2012, and chair from 2013 to 2016. Thus, every year, he has participated in different National and International meetings.

He also serves as a reviewer for the Revista Española de Cardiología and numerous other journals.

Cardiovascular imaging in aortic disease. Multimodality approach in clinical practice

Journal of Cardiovascular Echography, Volume 22, Issue 2, Pages 41-53

Journal of Cardiovascular Echography

In the last decade, remarkable advances have been made in noninvasive imaging of aortic diseases. The aim of this article was to provide a comprehensive review of these imaging modalities. Echocardiography plays an important role in the diagnosis and follow-up of aortic diseases. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) permits adequate assessment of several aortic segments, particularly aortic root and proximal ascending aorta. Transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) overcomes the limitations of TTE in thoracic aorta assessment. TTE and TEE should be used in a complementary manner. Although TEE is the technique of choice in the diagnosis of aortic dissection, TTE may be used as the initial modality in the emergency setting. Intimal flap in proximal ascending aorta, pericardial effusion/tamponade and left ventricular function can be easily visualised by TTE. TEE information (entry tear location, mechanisms and severity of aortic regurgitation and true lumen compression) is essential for selecting and monitoring surgical and endovascular treatment and detecting possible complications. Computed tomography has the advantage of providing optimum morphological information of the entire aorta and the accuracy of size measurements. Magnetic resonance imaging offers good morphological and dynamic information on the aorta without radiation, although in clinical practice its availability is lower.

Echocardiography in acute aortic syndrome

Current Cardiovascular Imaging Reports

The role of echocardiography in acute aortic syndrome has changed significantly in recent years. With the introduction of harmonic imaging, transthoracic echocardiography has yielded substantial improvements in diagnosing aortic dissection, mainly in the ascending aorta, and it provides accurate information for aortic insufficiency quantification, pericardial effusion, and assessment of segmental alterations in ventricular contractility. Transesophageal echocardiography offers considerable advantages in diagnosing acute aortic syndrome, because it permits excellent visualization of the intimal flap and the intramural hematoma. The technique offers sufficient information to directly indicate surgery and is superior to other imaging techniques for locating entry tears and analyzing aortic regurgitation mechanisms. In cases of definitive diagnosis by CT, transesophageal echocardiography should be performed before surgical or endovascular treatment to provide essential information to allow development of an appropriate therapeutic strategy.
