Personal Statement

Daniel S. Berman, MD, is director of cardiac imaging at Cedars-Sinai and professor of medicine at UCLA. He received his medical degree at the University of California, San Francisco, and then trained in internal medicine, nuclear medicine and cardiology at the University of California, Davis. In 1977, he was recruited to Cedars-Sinai to initiate a new program in nuclear cardiology, one of the first of its kind in the U.S. Since then, his career has been devoted to clinical research in developing, validating and applying noninvasive cardiac imaging methods for the detection of coronary disease and for risk assessment of patients once the diagnosis of coronary disease has been made.
