Juhani Knuuti’s research has focused on the physiology and pathophysiology, diagnosis

and new therapies of coronary artery disease, heart failure and metabolic diseases. The

research is also focused on developing and utilizing novel noninvasive imaging methods

(PET, SPECT, echocardiography, MRI and CT) that will help to determine the risk and

severity of CHD and heart failure and provide guidance for therapy decisions. The recent

focus in cardiac research has been on vulnerable plaques, cardiac remodelling and

multimodality and hybrid imaging. In metabolic and diabetes research, the focus has been

in the interactions between different organs and heart in the pathogenesis and
