    Dr. Higgins, MD, is a Professor of Radiology in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. He retired January 2012 after over 27 years in the Department of Radiology, but continues to contribute his clinical, research, and teaching skills as a Professor Emeritus. Dr. Higgins obtained his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He completed a residency from the University of California, Los Angeles and a residency from the University of California, San Diego, followed by a fellowship in Cardiovascular Radiology from Stanford University Hospital, California.

    Dr. Higgins is an expert in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, congenital heart disease, ischemic heart disease, acquired heart disease, thoracic aortic disease, and contrast media. He has laboratory research on interventional MRI, which is developing MR guided techniques for transcatheter delivery of aortic and pulmonary valves and aortic stents in pigs and dogs.

    Dr. Higgins has delivered 36 titled lectureships in the Unites States and abroad. He is and has been a member of the editorial boards of 14 scientific journals, and he is currently a member of Circulation, the American Journal of Cardiology, the Journal of American College of Cardiology, the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and the Journal of Cardiovascular MR. Dr. Higgins has published 746 articles, and he has written 126 book chapters and 26 books.
