EuroEcho-Imaging 2013 CME

Date: December 11-14, 2013
Location: Istanbul, Turkey

Description: Annual meeting of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI - formerly EAE).

Main themes:
  • Heart failure
  • Imaging in interventional cardiology
The aim of EuroEcho-Imaging will be to create an exciting forum for both clinicians and scientists to present and discuss the most up-to-date research and clinical findings on the broader spectrum of echocardiography together with the other cardiovascular imaging modalities. The usual educational track on Echocardiography will run throughout the meeting with several teaching courses and specifically designed sessions. The participation of young cardiologists and researchers will be stimulated and supported through the organisation of two (clinical and basic) young investigator award sessions. In addition, the best original researches will be rewarded through dedicated initiatives. This conference will represent a unique opportunity for cardiologist interested in the clinical and interventional applications of cardiovascular imaging to come together and interact with leading imaging experts from all over the world. The meeting will focus on the clinical scenario with the scope to demonstrate how imaging modalities may affect clinical decision-making and outcome.
