    Greetings to the group. 

    In 2006, I was a cardiology fellow, all set to pursue electrophysiology. At the ACC conference that year I first heard Dr Stephan Achenbach speak about this new technique called cardiac CT which allows us to evaluate coronaries without catheterization. The images blew me away. That talk was a pivot for me and I pursued further training. In the early days of cardiac CT, it was hard to find jobs that would let you practice the knowledge aquired. While the promise and potential of the modality was undeniable, it took more than 15 years for the CT to become mainstream and endorsed by the guidelines. Now I am privileged to  train the next generation of cardiac imagers .  It's been an exciting and rewarding journey.

    Hello All!
    Thank you for including me in this fantastic initiative. My name is Patricia Rodriguez. I did my general cards fellowship at UTMB and I am almost done with the cardiac advanced imaging fellowship. I am staying at UVA as part of the imaging faculty. My position will be divided into 25% clinical (mainly imaging:echo, CT, CMR, and nuclear) and 75% research. My main research interest is in women's heart disease and microvascular disease. I am also a mom of 2 little girls (5 and 3 years old). 
    Nice to meet everyone and excited to learn from all of you!
