Cristiana Monteiro

BSc (Hons) CCDS ECDSAP


Deputy Lead Cardiac Physiologist

I am a Highly Specialised Cardiac Physiologist and Deputy Lead for the Cardiac Physiology services at CCRF. I took my undergraduate training in Lisbon, Portugal, and currently am accredited in adult transthoracic echocardiography by the British Society of Echocardiography and the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging. Additionally, I am a certified cardiac devices specialist by the International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners and the European Heart Rhythm Association.

I am especially interested in the diagnosis and management of heart failure, and the development of artificial intelligence tools dedicated to healthcare. Within CCRF, I provide support, teaching and training to studies involving echocardiography, looking at heart mechanics and valvular function, and am also involved on pacemaker, defibrillator and heart resynchronisation trials. 

I maintain a close link to cardiac physiology in Portugal, being a member of the NEUC - APTEC (Cardiovascular Ultrasound Working Group of the Portuguese Clinical Physiology Association) since 2017.
