About me

Sumbal A. Janjua, MD, is a non-invasive cardiologist at the Heart and Vascular Institute of MedStar Washington Hospital Center. She specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of all cardiovascular conditions including coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, preventive cardiology, etc., but her special interests include the use of cardiac CT in the pre-procedural structural assessment and advanced Echocardiography in the intraprocedural guidance of structural heart procedures.

As a multimodality cardiac imager, Dr. Janjua has particular expertise in structural echocardiography and cardiac CT and works with cardiac surgeons and interventional cardiologists in the collaborative diagnosis, assessment and treatment of patients with structural heart disease.

Dr. Janjua spent a couple of years completing the NIH sponsored T-32 advanced imaging research fellowship, with particular focus on coronary and carotid plaque analysis by CT and its association with outcomes. Dr. Janjua was selected as a finalist for the “Young Investigator” award at the Society of Cardiovascular CT meeting for her research involving statin use and plaque on coronary CT angiography from the ROMICAT trial. In addition to this, her work investigating carotid plaque by CT among people with HIV has been published in the American Heart Association’s Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging. Dr Janjua has several publications in leading peer reviewed journals and has presented her work at various cardiology meetings including ACC, AHA and SCCT. She also served as a reviewer for Circulation: Cardiovasular Imaging.

Philosophy of Care
