Dr. L.F. Tops

Dr. L.F. (Laurens) Tops is cardioloog met als aandachtsgebied de beeldvorming van het hart. 

De opleiding tot cardioloog volgde hij in het Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum. 

In 2010 promoveerde hij cum laude op het proefschrift "Multimodality imaging to guide cardiac interventional procedures". In dit proefschrift wordt beschreven hoe verschillende beeldvormende technieken (CT scan, echocardiografie) nieuwe interventieprocedures (zoals katheterablatie procedures en percutane hartklepimplantaties) kunnen vergemakkelijken. Een deel van het onderzoek deed hij aan Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA).
