Dr. Lasya Gaur is an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her area of clinical expertise is pediatric cardiology with an emphasis on advanced imaging techniques. 

Dr. Gaur earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. After receiving her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin Medical School, she completed her residency in pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. She performed her fellowship training in pediatric cardiology followed by an additional year in advanced cardiac imaging at Children's National Medical Center. 

Dr. Gaur is most interested in studying advanced noninvasive imaging in children to minimize need for radiation or invasive procedures. She was involved with studying tissue characterization techniques at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health. Her research interests include special applications of advanced cardiac imaging including use of shape biomarkers in congenital heart disease for disease prediction, applications of tissue characterization as well as improved visualization of cardiac anatomy using 3D printing and virtual reality techniques for teaching and patient communication. 

She is board certified in general pediatrics and pediatric cardiology by the American Board of Pediatrics. She sees patients at the Bloomberg main campus at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Columbia location as well as participating in care of inpatients admitted to Johns Hopkins Children's Center. more
