Dr Kanaganayagam is a Cardiology Consultant at Imperial NHS trust and Chelsea and Westminster NHS trust.
He sees a wide range of patients presenting with chest pain, breathlessness, ankle swelling, valve disease and palpitations.
Dr Kanaganayagam also sees patients for risk assessment when required and performs non-invasive assessment when suitable, with stress testing or CT scanning, and offers invasive coronary angiography when necessary. As the clinical lead for heart failure in a large community service at Imperial, he has developed a thorough, considered and compassionate approach to his complex group of patients.
With formal accreditation in a number of cardiac imaging techniques, including CT coronary angiography, cardiac MRI, echo and transoesophageal echo, Dr Kanaganayagam is able to provide a unique and expedient hands-on approach in the investigative process. He uses this skill to advise specialist teams at Imperial to help manage valve disease, and guide transcatheter procedures.
He was trained at Kings College London and intercalated a PhD in Cardiology at St Thomas’ Hospital whilst a medical student, with prizes, distinctions and scholarships. He continued training as an academic and clinician at tertiary and quaternary cardiology centres, Imperial College London and the Royal Brompton Hospital. He is now an honorary clinical lecturer, and has set up educational sessions, given talks on courses, designed simulation models, has been invited as faculty to speak at a number of international courses, and continues to contribute in the research arena.
