Matthew J Budoff, MD, FSCCT
Professor of Medicine
David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
Program Director and Director of Cardiac CT
Division of Cardiology
Harbor-UCLA Medical Center
Dr. Budoff is a national expert on Coronary Artery Calcification (CAC) and CT Angiography. He is recognized as a leader in the development of CAC Scoring and an innovator in the non-invasive objective detection methods for cardiac disease. He is an investigator in many large pharmaceutical trials and multicenter studies funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Dr. Budoff’s research is devoted to advancing procedures that can help doctors identify patients early that are at high-risk for cardiac events and progression of coronary calcium. This early detection can lead to patients being placed on the correct therapeutic path to prevent a heart attack. Additionally, Dr. Budoff’s research focuses on how to maximize the utility of non-contrast CT scans of the heart. His team has shown that supplementary measurements can be evaluated for thoracic aortic calcification, aortic valve calcification, mitral annular calcification, pericardial fat, liver fat, myocardial scar and bone density.
