Senior Consultant Cardiologist
Dr Wong Siong Sung is the Senior Consultant Cardiologist and Medical Director of Healthy Heart Specialist Centre and Somerset Imaging Centre in Singapore. His areas of interest in Cardiology include cardiovascular computed tomography, cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, coronary angiography and coronary artery stenting.
While he was in NUH, he strengthened and took the level of CT coronary angiogram and radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging services to a higher level. He is one of the pioneer in the establishment of the novel technique of the quantification of myocardial blood flow and coronary flow reserve with an innovative Tc-99m sestamibi dynamic single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) technique in Singapore. He undertook successful clinical quality improvement projects which provided timely CT coronary angiogram and radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging services for patients with acute chest pain syndrome in Emergency Department at National University Hospital. He interpreted and reported numerous Nuclear Cardiology scans, Cardiovascular CT and Cardiovascular MRI scans, echocardiograms and treadmill exercise tests.
He supervised, gave regular lectures and teachings to Fellows from overseas, Senior Residents, Residents, Radiographers and Staff Nurses.
