Member of:

European Society of Cardiology

Dr. Dominik C. Benz received his training in cardiology and cardiac imaging at the University Hospital Zurich in Switzerland. In 2021 and 2022, he did a research fellowship in cardiac amyloidosis at the Harvard Medical School and a clinical fellowship in CMR at the Cardiovascular Imaging Program at the Brigham and Women‘s Hospital in Boston. Currently, he serves as faculty in Echocardiography and Cardiac Imaging (CT, CMR, Nuclear) at the University Hospital Zurich. Dr. Benz is an expert in multimodality cardiac imaging. His research interests include cardiac amyloidosis and quantification of myocardial blood flow in cardiac PET. For his scientific achievements, he received the BIR Early Career Award and Otto Hess Trainee Award and won multiple abstract awards from the ACC and Swiss Society of Cardiology. He is on the ESC Board Committee for Young Cardiovascular Professionals, on the ASNC Committee for Education and member of the ASNC Leadership Development Program.
