Dr. Sanjeet Hegde is a pediatric cardiologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an assistant clinical professor of pediatrics at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Dr. Hegde graduated from JIPMER, a premier medical institution in India. He did his pediatric training in the UK, which led to a Membership of the Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health (MRCPCH degree), London, UK. He then completed a research fellowship in pediatric cardiology/cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at Guy's, Kings and St. Thomas' Hospital, London, UK, and earned a doctoral degree from the University of London for his dissertation, titled "Magnetic resonance guided catheter tracking and cardiac intervention." Dr. Hegde then moved to the U.S. and completed a pediatric residency at University of Massachusetts and a pediatric cardiology fellowship at UC San Diego.

He specializes in cardiovascular MRI and echocardiography and is interested in MRI guidance of cardiac catheterization in children.

Dr. Hegde's research interests include in-vitro measurement of the safety of devices for interventional MRI, development of catheters and in-vitro testing of their suitability for interventional MRI, device implantation under XMR, catheter tracking under MRI, and image guidance of cardiac interventions. He was part of the research team in London that performed the world's first radiation-free MRI-guided cardiac catheterization in children.

Dr. Hegde has authored multiple peer-reviewed journal articles and textbook chapters related to his research. He is currently part of the research team investigating computational modeling of complex congenital heart disease.

Dr. Hegde is the lead within the Cardiology Division for quality improvement and patient safety. He is actively engaged in teaching medical students, nursing staff, residents and fellows. Outside of work, he enjoys swimming, hiking and traveling with his wife.
