He graduated and obtained Masters degree in medicine and cardiology from the University of Calcutta, India and migrated to the UK in 1989 when he joined Northwick Park Hospital as a research fellow. He became a Consultant Cardiologist and Director of Cardiac Research at the Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow in 1995.Following which he was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist and Director of Echocardiography at the Royal Bromtpon Hospital,London in 2010.
He is a clinician with a major interest in echocardiography. He has been involved with echocardiography for the last 25 years and has published over 350 original papers in this field. His particular interest is in heart failure,hypertension, coronary artery disease,valvular heart disease and acute coronary syndrome including myocardial infarction.
He pioneered the clinical development of contrast echocardiography including myocardial contrast echo especially in the detection of myocardial viability and led several multicentre studies involving Contrast Echocardiography. He also pioneered the use of stress echocardiography for early discharge of patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome.He developed and popularised the use of stress echocardiography for the assessment of coronary artery disease. Furthermore, he has utilised hand-held echocardiography for the detection of cardiac dysfunction and assessed its cost-effectiveness in comparison to BNP for the detection of heart failure. He recently completed a study assessing cardiac function and carotid atherosclerosis in Indian Asian vs European Whites which may clarify the differential outcome in these two ethnic groups. He is now actively involved in research in valvular heart disease particularly aortic valve stenosis and developed a new way for assessing this condition.
Professor Senior has been awarded the “Edler Lecture” by the University of Lund,Sweden for his pioneering work in echocardiography.His fellows have won several awards. He provided Core – Lab function for MRC sponsored study in Hibernating Myocardium.He now leads a major clinical trial in coronary artery disease.
