Dr Kanaganayagam is a Cardiologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Cardiology for Imperial and Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trusts and also offers private consultations. He sees patients with complaints of chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations, dizziness and leg swelling. He also treats patients with known coronary disease, valve disease, arrhythmias and heart failure as well as common conditions such as hypertension and high cholesterol.
He is the Lead for Cardiology Imaging at Chelsea and Westminster Hospitals, and has expertise in CT coronary angiography (with calcium score), stress echocardiography, transoesophageal echos and cardiac MRIs. Importantly, he uses these to thoroughly investigate and treat his patients appropriately, and performs these for other heart specialists to help manage their patients. He is also the Lead for a Community Heart Failure service at Imperial and helps manage patients with both reduced and preserved systolic function (HFPEF and HFREF).
He continues to participate in original cardiovascular research, and has written review articles and lectured on cardiac CT, echocardiography and cardiac MRI.

Dr Kanaganayagam is a leading authority in cardiovascular imaging. When I have needed to refer patients for imaging tests of the heart at my Chiswick clinic he has always been able to provide expert reports promptly.
Dr Kanaganayagam is an excellent cardiologist with a superb patient manner and personal skills. He has specialty interests in the management of heart failure and a particular expertise in complex cardiac imaging. I would strongly recommend him having previously trained together and now more recently working together as consultant colleagues.
Sunthar is excellent - a well rounded cardiologist with a strong interest in cardiac imaging and who is an expert in CT scanning and echocardiography. Friendly, with great communication skills and a pleasure to work with.
Excellent cardiac imaging specialist who I work with frequently for both echo, TOE, CT and cardiac MRI. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
