Research Highlights

Her research into methods to improve the accuracy of echocardiography and myocardial perfusion cardiac MRI scanning has received both national and international awards for her work so far, including:

  • Society of Cardiac MRI
  • British Society of Cardiac MRI
  • British Hypertension Society
  • National Heart and Lung Institute
  • President’s Medal for Cardiology at the Royal Society of Medicine.

Her current research interests include optimising imaging acquisition and analysis methods for identifying patients at risk of developing heart failure; using MRI-based scar imaging to improve ablation in patients with ventricular arrhythmias; and understanding and treating patients with cardiac problems arising from cancer therapies.

She has also completed a study commissioned by the Medicines and Health Regulatory Authority to assess the risk of cardiotoxicity related to metal-on-metal hip implants.

Dr Manisty was recently part of a study, published by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, that found that for first-time marathon runners, training and completion of the marathon resulted in reductions in blood pressure and aortic stiffening in healthy participants that were equivalent to a four-year reduction in vascular age.
