Dr. Quek’s main area of interest is in Doppler-echocardiography for the non-invasion structural and functional evaluation of all aspects of cardiac disease, including valvular, cogenital defects, and coronary artery disease. Her special interest is in the field of cardiac ultrasound and she is one of the early pioneers of this subspecialty here in Singapore, having trained at the National Heart Centre in London and Stanford University and Mayo Clinic in the United States.

To-date, she continues to teach and train doctors and cardiac technicians in this field and performs and oversees conventional transthoracic, transesophageal and exercise and pharmacological stress echocardiographic studies.
