Mark I. Travin, MD, FACC, MASNC, is Director of Cardiovascular Nuclear Medicine at Montefiore. He is also a Professor of Radiology and Medicine at our Albert Einstein College of Medicine. His clinical focus is on cardiac stress testing, radionuclide myocardial (perfusion and metabolic) imaging, and quantitative blood flow.
Dr. Travin earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in 1979 at Yale College, followed by his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1983 from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. After graduating, he went on to complete both an internship and a residency in medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital. In 1986, Dr. Travin began a fellowship in cardiology at the Brown University Integrated Fellowship Program. After that, he went on to complete a clinical and research fellowship in medicine and cardiology, with emphasis in nuclear cardiology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.
Dr. Travin’s research focus is on cardiac innervation radionuclide imaging with I-123 mIBG and analogous PET tracers, and quantitative blood flow assessment with myocardial perfusion PET. He has a significant body of published research on cardiac imaging, and has received numerous awards and honors, including the Cardiology Program Director’s Training Award, and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology 2015 Zaret-Beller Distinguished Journal of Nuclear Cardiology Service Award.
