Research

Dr. Corrado is the leader of a research team that is developing a new pre-participation screening practice to identify athletes at risk for sudden cardiac death (SCD). Nearly 150 competitive athletes suffer sudden cardiac death (SCD) annually in the United States, a potentially preventable tragic event that affects individuals, families and communities.

Dr. Corrado is researching the use of a portable ultrasound machine to detect heart abnormalities in young athletes rather than the standard history and physical that is used now. The hope is that Dr. Corrado's research will one day help to prevent those devastating and unforeseen deaths. Results show the protocol to be significantly faster, less costly and more accurate than current screening methods.
