Biography

Dr. Garami has a clinical background in Radiology, and has also received further specialization in intracranial ultrasound in Europe and the United States. In recent years, Dr. Garami has become a nationally recognized leader in transcranial Doppler (TCD).

Description of Research

Dr. Garami´s research focuses on understanding and treating intracranial flow disturbances that cause stroke. He has numerous publications on the monitoring of the cerebral vasculature during vascular procedures such as coronary artery bypass grafting, and carotid artery surgery. His current studies aim to reveal critical patterns of distal intracranial embolization in LVAD patients.
