Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Prof. Udo Sechtem,
This session focused on two cases illustrating the challenges inherent in imaging of the RV.
The first case showed how difficult identification of abnormalities can be even by MRI in patients with suspected RV dysplasia. Subtle regional wall motion abnormalities may be interpreted differently by different observers making it difficult to identify whether major and minor criteria for the condition are met. This also is true for the formerly hailed detection of intramyocardial fat. The second case showed the limitations of noninvasive characterisation of an RV tumour by MRI. However, limitations of echocardiography in defining the nature of a tumour and its exact extenson were also demonstrated. Overall, an interesting session showing that even with the latest imaging equipment the right ventricle poses special challenges to imagers.
