Michael V. McConnell, MD, MSEE

Cardiologist

Dr. McConnell directs the Cardiovascular MRI Program in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine as well as the NIH-funded Multi-Disciplinary Training Program in Cardiovascular Imaging at Stanford (CVIS). His research studies novel MRI and molecular imaging techniques, from mouse to man, to evaluate coronary artery and vascular diseases, including the characterization of atherosclerotic plaque and vascular inflammation. He actively collaborates with scientists in Electrical Engineering, Vascular Biology, Radiology, Cardiac/Vascular Surgery, and Chemistry.

Dr. McConnell also co-directs the Preventive Cardiology Clinic and leads the effort of Stanford Cardiovascular Health to integrate mobile health technologies to improve the care of patients with or at risk for coronary artery disease.
