Non-invasive cardiovascular and body imaging
Prof. Lamb is actively involved in scientific research in the field of non-invasive cardiovascular and body imaging. His main focus is on development of cardiovascular imaging techniques with fast conversion to clinical application, including 3D imaging, fast acquisition techniques and MR spectroscopy. His main research focus is currently on diseases related to obesity and diabetes mellitus. He is study director of 2 ongoing triple-blind randomised trials on the effects of a GLP-1 analog. He is principle investigator of a large multicentre European study on liver steatosis. Recently he obtained a large grant from the Dutch Heart Foundation for the RADAR-study on earlier detection of aortic aneurysm and rupture risk. He published over 310 peer reviewed scientific papers, Sum of the Times Cited 13719, H-index 66, i10-index 172.
