An advocate of the emerging use of computerized tomography to quickly and non-invasively diagnosis heart disease in patients who, for example, come to an emergency room with chest pain, Litwin notes that the beating heart with its tiny arteries is an imagining challenge even without the obesity issue. He is corresponding author of a recent review article on the expanding role of CT in assessing and treating heart disease in the journal Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine.
