This website is meant to be viewed by students in high-school and college. Any teenager would be interested in this website because of the excellent media (video and images) and the interactive sections. This information about cardiac imaging is a solid introduction into the field of cardiology and radiology, and so anyone that is interested in those fields of study should browse around this site.

Participating in this project was a thrilling and educational experience. As a part of the team, I was responsible for the Introduction to the Structure of the Heart, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and Cardiac Catheterization sections for the research aspects of the website. Besides website content, I created the Cross-Word puzzle, the Trivia Quiz, the Case Study Quiz, and worked on editing and compiling videos on the interactive portion. In addition, as you browse through the research sections, you will come across Flash demonstrations created by me to facilitate and expedite the learning process. Please feel free to browse through the site, as it took several tedious hours of study, development, and compilation.
Thinkquest was a learning experience for all the team members. I am proud to be on such a wonderful team. I was in charge of website design, which included to orignially design the site layout, which colors to use, and to create the best navigational system. I worked on designing the the Spanish and and text-only versions of the website. I learned how to use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to design this website, a programming language I barely even knew before working with Thinkquest. We all split up the research. I worked on the Introduction to Circulatory System, X-Ray, and Nuclear Medicine. I also worked on a part of the EKG and CT sections. The site goes above and beyond the basics of the heart and teaches the reader about cardiac imaging. I was so interested in a site about heart imaging because our team knew a site about cardiac imaging would have a lot media (images and videos) that would help the website surfer understand the topic clearly. I hope you appreciate the field of radiology and cardiology more after reading this site.
I chose to participate in Thinkquest this year because I felt it would be a great opportunity for me to learn about something new as well as work with people who have the same interests and goals as I do. Throughout this past year I have learned much about the different aspects of website creation. We chose to work on cardiac imaging, because we wanted the whole internet-surfing world to understand how doctors really diagnose problems in one of the most important organs, the heart. I feel that through my participation in this project, I was able to facilitate a creation of a truly informative website on important and pertinent information to many people. I was in charge of all of the images found on this website. I found many of the images used, and created some as well. My most unique and artistic contribution to this project was the site logo. I also contributed to the research, and I composed the Heart Function, Pathologies, Ultrasound sections as well as parts of the EKG and CT sections. This website was created for your viewing pleasure through hours of team work, and I was very lucky to work with such a fun, wonderful, and understanding group the entire time.
We would like to thank our coach, Mr. Nelson. Mr. Nelson is a teacher that is currently enrolled at Langley High School in Virginia and teaches AP Biology. Mr. Nelson has given our team the ability to work freely and efficiently. Truly, without Mr. Nelson, this site could not be possible.
We would like to thank Dr. Charagundla, a radiologist at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Charagundla has given out team lucid explainations of some imaging techniques and some of the diagnostic media.
