I have a longstanding interest in echocardiography and was the founding President of the British Society of Echocardiography.

I lecture and write extensively. This includes 12 textbooks which have been published in a large number of languages. I have also published more than 120 peer review research papers which can be found by visiting www.pubmed.gov and searching under Shapiro, LM.


I have an extensive range of research activities ongoing at the present time, particularly i in structural cardiac intervention and presently studying the ASD & PFO affect of closure on the function of the heart. I am involved in multiple echocardiographic projects related to the mitral valve.
