Dr. Johri joined the Echocardiography group at Queen’s University in 2010 after completing an Advanced Fellowship in Echocardiography (Level III) and Multi-modality Imaging at Harvard University Medical School, Boston MA. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine and the Founder/Director of the Cardiovascular Imaging Network at Queen's (CINQ). Dr. Johri has the distinction of Fellow of the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) in recognition of his various contributions to the advancement of the field of ultrasound. He has served on the Boards of the ASE and Canadian Society of Echo, is the immediate past Chair of the ASE Circulation and Vascular Ultrasound (CAVUS) Council and is the Founder and former Editor-in-Chief of POCUS Journal.

His particular interest is in 3D echocardiography, quality control in the echo lab, interventional echocardiography, and Hand Held Cardiac Ultrasound. He also has extensive experience in echo-guided CRT optimization and TEE guided percutaneous aortic valve replacement (TAVI).  Dr. Johri’s research focus involves patient-oriented research projects and the innovation of non-invasive techniques to predict and diagnose atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. This includes: carotid intimal medial thickening, 3D strain and 3D stress testing, cardiopulmonary point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS), screening of special populations such as competitive athletes and women, analysis of vulnerable atherosclerotic carotid plaque through 3D, composition, and novel ultrasound contrast applications. He is chair of the ASE guideline for the Assessment of Carotid Arterial Plaque by Ultrasound, and also chaired the ASE Statement on Point-of-Care Ultrasound during the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Pandemic.
