Dr. Saric has advanced the technique of 3D transesophageal echocardiography, described the“tilt-up-then-left” or TUPLE maneuver, which improves the diagnosis of atrial septal defects (ASDs), ascertains the important anatomic relationships of ASDs to surrounding structures, and facilitates communication between echocardiographers and interventional cardiologists or cardiac surgeons performing ASD closures. The maneuver also helps guide the transseptal puncture during percutaneous procedures that require access to the left heart.

His research lead to numerous articles and book chapters in the field of echocardiography. The books he contributed to include Dynamic Echocardiography: A Case-Based Approach, Textbook of Real-Time Three-Dimensional Echocardiography, Comprehensive Atlas of 3D Echocardiography, Comprehensive Textbook of Echocardiography, Clinical Echocardiography Review: A Self-Assessment Tool, Cardiology Board Review, The CCU Survival Guide, Echocardiography in Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention of Acute Coronary Syndrome, and Chaser Pathway for the Management of Pericardial Disease. 

He has also created the web site http://saric.us/echonomy which provides tools for calculating a variety of clinically useful echocardiographic parameters.
