Welcome address

Welcome to Leipzig for the The EuroEcho-Imaging 2016 congress.

The EuroEcho-Imaging congress is the world’s largest cardiovascular imaging congress

We are delighted to announce that the next official annual meeting of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) will take place in Leipzig from 7 -10 December 2016. 

Over the years, EuroEcho-Imaging has grown more and more to become the world’s largest cardiovascular imaging congress. This year’s main themes are imaging in arrhythmias and aortic valve diseases.

The aim of EuroEcho-Imaging will be to create an exciting forum, in which both clinicians and scientists can present and discuss the most up-to-date research and clinical findings on the broader spectrum of echocardiography alongside with the other cardiovascular imaging modalities.

An educational track will run throughout the congress, featuring several specially designed courses and sessions. Young cardiologists and researchers will be stimulated and supported through the three Young Investigator Award Sessions (clinical, basic science, clinical case). Also, dedicated initiatives will reward the best original research.

However, EuroEcho-Imaging is more than just education and science; it is also a fantastic opportunity to meet the greatest experts in cardiovascular imaging in the world, to exchange ideas and projects with colleagues who share the same clinical or scientific interest coming from all over the world.

EuroEcho-Imaging attracted over 3 200 attendees from 90 countries last year and is the place to be to meet with world renowned global experts in the field of cardiovascular imaging.

We look forward to welcoming you in Leipzig for another great edition of EuroEcho-Imaging.
