Dr. Achi Ludomirsky is a Professor of Pediatric Cardiology and Professor of Pediatrics. He is the Associate Chair of the Department of Pediatric for Outreach at NYU School of Medicine.

Ludomirsky is a pioneer in fetal and pediatric heart imaging and one of the most prominent pediatric cardiologists in the country. He brings a broad vision and a commitment to excellence in patient care, education and advancing our understanding of heart disease in children.

Ludomirsky is known nationally and internationally for his instrumental role in the development of novel imaging and therapeutic procedures for fetuses and children with congenital heart disease, including transesophageal echocardiography, three-dimensional echocardiographic reconstruction and therapeutic ultrasound. He served on multiple committees and was the president of the pediatric echocardiography society (SOPE) as well as the chair of the pediatric council of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) for four consecutive years.

At the NYU School of Medicine, he continues to develop new techniques to use ultrasound not only for imaging but also for noninvasive treatment of children and fetuses with congenital heart disease. He is also advancing the 3 D printing of cardiac models from CT and MRI. During the last two years his research interests are in the development of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning for the use in cardiac applications.

Ludomirsky is currently an alternate senator in the Faculty Council and the NYU Senate representing the Medical school and the Department of Pediatrics. He also serves on the Appointment and Promotion committee of the Department of Pediatrics. Ludomirsky is a member of the Applied Research Support Fund Review Committee of our Medical School. Ludomirsky is also very active with the admission process of our Medical School both as a screener and interviewer.

After earning his medical degree from the Sackler Medical School at Tel Aviv University in Israel, (magnum cum laude) Ludomirsky served his country as a major and a physician in the research and development branch of the Medical Corps of the Israel Defense Forces, where he was stationed on the front lines.

He then completed a residency in General Pediatrics at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, followed by a fellowship in Pediatric Cardiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Ludomirsky moved to the University of Michigan in 1992 where he was director of the echocardiography laboratory at the Michigan Congenital Heart Center at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital until 2003.

Ludomirsky came to NYU Medical Center six years ago from Washington University in St.Louis where he served as the director of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology and the Louis Larrick Ward professor of Pediatrics and Biomedical Engineering in the School of Medicine.
