Biography

Dr. Nicholas Burris is board certified Cardiothoracic radiologist who joined the faculty at University of Michigan Department of Radiology in 2016. Dr. Burris received his medical degree from University of Maryland in 2010, and competed both a residency in Diagnostic Radiology and a fellowship in Cardiac and Pulmonary Imaging at University of California San Francisco. Additionally, Dr. Burris competed a year of dedicated post-doctorate research training at UCSF in 2015 as part of the Department’s Biomedical Imaging for Clinician Scientists T32 training grant from the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Burris’ research work focuses on advanced imaging of diseases of the aorta and aortic valve. Specifically, Dr. Burris researches the use of advanced MRI and CT techniques to improve risk assessment of patients with aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm and bicuspid aortic valve. He received a competitive Fellow Grant from the Radiologic Society of North America in 2015 to study the role of hemodynamics and inflammation in patients with type B aortic dissection using PET/MRI and an advanced MRI blood flow imaging technique called 4D Flow. Dr. Burris has multiple awards for his research from the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Society of Magnetic Resonance Angiography. He serves as a reviewer for multiple national and international scientific journals including Investigate Radiology, Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance.

Clinically, Dr. Burris has interest in providing high-level care to patients undergoing CT/MR imaging of the aorta and aortic valve, and acts as the lead radiologist for the University of Michigan’s Multidisciplinary Aorta (MAP) and Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) Programs. Dr. Burris also has clinical interest in CT/MR imaging of cardiac disease, CT imaging of interstitial lung disease (ILD), and CT-guided lung biopsy techniques. He also displays a high level of enthusiasm and commitment to educating medical students, residents and fellows training in Cardiovascular Imaging.
