Aldo Luisada was an early pioneer in noninvasive means of diagnosing heart disease, including phonocardiography and echocardiography. He was born in Florence, Italy, received his medical degree in 1924 and spent two years in the Italian army before continuing postgraduate studies at various European schools. In 1939 he moved to the United States where he spent most of his time teaching and lecturing at the Chicago Medical School. He was a cardiologist who spent much of his time researching phonocardiography (study of the heart and the sounds and rhythms it makes). He was active in research involving heart transplants and the use of a pressure chamber to reduce strain on cardiac patients. He was an initiator of the Laennec Society for Cardiovascular Sound and served as its first president. [E. Ray Borun]
