Specialty Interests: Advanced cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) imaging, including echocardiography, cardiac computed tomography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging; cardiomyopathy; diseases of the aorta; infiltrative cardiac disorders; ischemic heart disease; heart valve disease; heart disease and aging. 

Education: Dr. Xu received his medical degree from the University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, graduating as the top student in the St. Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne Clinical School.

He joined the Cleveland Clinic medical staff in 2018 following completion of a further two-year fellowship in advanced cardiovascular imaging at Cleveland Clinic.

Experience and Outcomes: Cleveland Clinic's Section of Cardiovascular Imaging is one of the largest and most experienced in the country. Staff physicians read and interpret nearly 50,000 images every year to diagnose heart disease, plan optimal care for patients and help ensure treatment is complete. They also use these diagnostic studies to minimize complications during many types of catheter-based procedures and heart surgery.

Publications and Research: Dr. Xu has authored numerous research articles and research abstracts in peer-reviewed medical and cardiology journals. He has also co-authored book chapters for cardiology textbooks. Dr. Xu has presented his research findings at major national and international cardiology meetings, including the annual scientific sessions of the American College of Cardiology, European Society of Cardiology, American Society of Echocardiography and World Congress on Heart Disease. He has served as an invited faculty and member of the scientific advisory board for the International Academy of Cardiology.

About Dr. Xu: “I am privileged to be a cardiologist with expertise in cardiovascular imaging, because I am able to use my knowledge and skills to better understand how heart conditions impact patients, and help guide them toward better, healthier lives.”

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 10/2/2018, Dr. Xu has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.
