He also specialises in Intravascular ultrasound to facilitate lesion assessment and optimize stent deployment and pressure wire to determine physiological significance as a lesion to decide if it requires stenting.

In addition he specialises in rotational athrerctomy to treat heavily calcified coronary arteries.
