About Kanwal M. Farooqi, MD


Dr. Kanwal M. Farooqi is a specialist in the use of advanced imaging techniques to provide the best care for patients with congenital heart disease. She completed pediatric and pediatric cardiology training at Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM), Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and was named the Rachel Cooper Foundation fellow during her time at CHAM. Dr. Farooqi went on to complete an advanced imaging fellowship at Kravis Children's Hospital, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Farooqi's research focuses on the use of 3D printed and digital cardiac models to improve care for patients with congenital heart disease. She was granted the Glorney Raisbeck Fellowship Award by the New York Academy of Medicine to identify the optimal cardiac MRI sequences in creating 3D models. Prior to joining Columbia, Dr. Farooqi was a full time faculty member at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School for two years and led the pediatric cardiology service for the University Hospital in Newark.


At Columbia, Dr. Farooqi also researches the use of advanced imaging technologies, including 3D printing and virtual reality, for education of patients, families and trainees. Dr. Farooqi recently collaborated with other leaders in the field to publish a book entitled "Rapid Prototyping in Cardiac Disease: 3D Printing the Heart." She has organized a multicenter study assessing the utility of 3D printed models for preoperative planning of VAD placement in patients with congenital heart disease and heart failure. Dr. Farooqi has authored multiple manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, and has been invited to speak about her research at numerous national and international conferences. An expert in her field of advanced imaging, she was recruited to help build the 3D printing program at CUMC.
