Research Database

The Sheffield Pulmonary Vascular Disease Unit has a Research Database which is approved by an NHS Research Ethics Committee. This enables us to undertake research using anonymised patient data collected during routine hospital visits. A list of recent projects using the Research Database is as follows:

Study 001: Quantitative Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in pulmonary hypertension (Dr Andy Swift, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals)

Study 002: Anomalous pulmonary venous drainage in patients presenting to a pulmonary hypertension referral centre (Dr Robert Lewis, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals)
