Biography

Dr. Beroukhim specializes in fetal and pediatric cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. She is the director of the pediatric echocardiography laboratory and the fetal cardiology programs at MGH.  She is nationally and internationally known for her work in the field of pediatric cardiac imaging, and the noninvasive diagnosis of pediatric cardiac tumors.  She is board certified in pediatrics and pediatric cardiology.

Dr. Beroukhim completed her pediatric cardiology core training at the Childrens Hospital of Denver and completed subspecialty training in noninvasive imaging at Boston Children's Hospital, which includes fetal echocardiography, transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, and cardiac MRI.  In addition to her clinical work, she practices clinical research in a variety of areas within congenital and fetal cardiology.

Dr. Beroukhim cares for fetuses and children with congenital and acquired heart disease, and heart rhythm abnormalities.  Her patients include those with complex congenital heart disease, such as single ventricle heart disease.  Some of her patients have syndromes and other medical issues that are associated with their heart defect, and she often works with teams of doctors including obstetricians, pediatricians, and other pediatric specialists.  Because she meets many of her patients prenatally, she enjoys the continuity of care she is able to provide by caring for her patients both before and after birth.  She also treats patients with acquired heart disease and arrhythmias.

Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Beroukhim's research has involved ways to appropriately and accurately diagnose and manage fetuses and children with congenital heart disease.  She has published on topics of aortic dilation, bicuspid aortic valve, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, aortic regurgitation, cardiac tumors, and single ventricle cardiac defects.  One of her main areas of research is on the diagnosis and treatment of children with cardiac tumors using echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
