Andrew J. Einstein, MD, PhD, is a cardiologist and clinical and translational investigator whose research focuses on patient safety and medical imaging. He presently serves as both Herbert Irving Assistant Professor of Medicine (in Radiology) and Victoria and Esther Aboodi Assistant Professor of Medicine (in Radiology) at Columbia University, where he also is Director of Cardiac Computed Tomography Research and Co-Director of Cardiac Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. His interdisciplinary research program has been recently funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, multiple foundation grants, and investigator-initiated grants from industry. Dr. Einstein's research has resulted in over 100 publications in journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the Lancet, and over 80 invited lectures at scientific conferences across the globe as well as at the Food and Drug Administration and US Senate. This work has been influential in affecting clinical practice, has been widely reported in the popular media including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and CBS Evening News, and cited over two thousand times in the scientific literature.
For his research, Dr. Einstein has been elected to membership in the American Society for Clinical Investigation and received the Louis Katz Cardiovascular Research Prize for a Young Investigator, the American Federation for Medical Research's Junior Physician Investigator Award, and the American College of Cardiology's Douglas P. Zipes Distinguished Young Investigator Award. He is a member of the Food and Drug Administration's Medical Imaging Drugs Advisory Committee, a consultant to the International Atomic Energy Agency, and has served as a reviewer for the National Cancer Institute and numerous journals. He is a board member of the Association for Clinical and Translational Science and multiple cardiology societies, and serves on the editorial boards of several cardiology journals. In addition, he is a founder and the gabbai of the association of Orthodox Jewish cardiologists.

Dr. Andrew J. Einstein, an assistant professor of clinical medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, who testified before a Senate committee in 2008 about the isotope shortage, said supplies were adequate at the moment.
But he drew a biblical analogy. "This is the seven years of plenty," he said. "It certainly is time to be preparing for supply beyond Chalk River."
Dr. Einstein said that when tech 99 was not available, doctors could use substitutes, but that these gave the patient larger radiation doses or provided poorer image quality to the doctor.
And for some uses, doctors can substitute PET scans, he said.

Most of the patients who did have radiation exposure "had more than the background radiation we get just by living in the U.S., from radon, from the food we eat, from cosmic rays," said study co-author Dr. Andrew Einstein, director of cardiac computed tomography research at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City.
The lower the dose, the lower the risk," Einstein said.
Einstein suggested that clinicians need to take into account "justification" (is it really necessary?) and optimization (is it at the lowest dose possible?) of the tests.
And, he added, carefully selecting which tests to use when can also minimize risk.
