Who We Are: Cardiovascular Imaging Network at Queen’s (CINQ) is a centre for cardiovascular research, clinical practice, and medical training in advanced cardiac and vascular imaging techniques. As a multi-site team collaborating with over 50 researchers, CINQ has 3 areas of focus:
1) Research on novel methods of heart disease diagnosis and treatment;
2) Clinical innovation of point-of-care cardiac and vascular ultrasound; and
3) Education – training the next generation of clinician scientists.
Our Mission: We aspire to position CINQ as the central node in a global network, working to translate novel cardiovascular imaging and treatment technologies into clinical practice, thereby reducing the burden of heart disease in our society.
