Jonathon Leipsic Awarded 2019 DeHaan Award for Innovation in Cardiology

Leipsic to use $200,000 grant from annual SCCT award to further research on mechanisms of bioprosthetic valve failure

Jonathon Leipsic Awarded 2019 DeHaan Award for Innovation in Cardiology

July 8, 2019 – Jonathon A. Leipsic, M.D., FSCCT, is the recipient of the 2019 DeHaan Award for Innovation in Cardiology, announced by the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT). Leipsic will present the second Dehaan Award Lecture at the SCCT 14th Annual Scientific Meeting, July 11-14 in Baltimore. The award, presented by the Jon DeHaan Foundation, includes a $200,000 grant.

Leipsic is the chairman of the department of radiology for Providence Health Care and the vice-chairman of research and a professor of radiology and cardiology for the University of British Columbia. He is a past president of the SCCT (2015-2016) and will also be awarded the SCCT Gold Medal Award in 2019.

“Dr. Leipsic has been a tireless champion, teacher and leader in cardiac applications of CT for many years. He has devoted countless hours toward advancing the field, and at the same time has thus touched many patients multiplied by the number of cardiologists who have used his work or who have learned from him directly.” said Robert Schwartz, M.D., chairman of the board for the Jon DeHaan Foundation. “It is a great pleasure that Dr. Leipsic has been chosen for the Jon H. DeHaan Foundation award for cardiovascular excellence in imaging, the purpose of which is to further his work and teaching, thus advancing cardiac CT far into the future.”

Leipsic intends to build on past work delving into the mechanisms of bioprosthetic valve failure. The data suggests that the mechanisms and timelines of valve degeneration are consistent across surgical and transcatheter bioprosthetic heart valves, and a better understanding of structural valve degeneration can be obtained through combining further histological and novel imaging approaches. Leipsic will continue along this path of investigation through the generous support of the DeHaan Foundation Award, which will allow him to perform the needed advanced analyses to help advance understanding of this complex process and potentially develop solutions to this important clinical problem.

The award lecture at the SCCT Annual Scientific Meeting, generously supported by the Jon Holden DeHaan Foundation, helps promote the knowledge and the use of cardiovascular CT to improve patient outcomes.
