    Dr. Andrew Cheng received his B.S. in electrical engineering and computer science from University of California, Berkeley and M.D. from University of Michigan. After medical school, he completed a residency in pediatrics at University of California, Los Angeles, and fellowships in pediatric cardiology and advanced cardiac imaging at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Dr. Cheng is currently an Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at USC and an attending Pediatric Cardiologist at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. His clinical interests include cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac computed tomography, and care of patients with the Fontan circulation. Dr. Cheng's primary research utilizes cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computational fluid dynamic simulations to study the role of blood viscosity in Fontan circulation pathophysiology.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
