As a skilled reader of both echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography, Dr. LaBounty’s main research interests include reducing the radiation dose from cardiac procedures, evaluating what causes plaque to develop, and using cardiac imaging to guide advanced cardiac procedures such as transcatheter aortic valve implantations. Dr. LaBounty enjoys outdoor activities like backpacking, biking and running. Having been a performing cellist working toward his doctorate in music before deciding to pursue medicine, he has a unique background and maintains a passion for music. He also loves to travel and hopes to eventually visit each of the continents.
