Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
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 IN EUROPE
The EACVI CMR Section is about to publish in the European Heart Journal-Cardiovascular Imaging an important paper dedicated to Indications for CMR in Children with CHD.In preview, Dr Emanuela Valsangiacomo, Main author of this publication, gives us some insight of what will be covered by this important paper.
The article provides expert opinion on the use of CMR in young patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) and in specific clinical situations. The paper is very topical, since CMR is gaining an increasingly important role in the diagnostic evaluation of patients with CHD as well as in clinical decision making, including indicating the need for and in planning an intervention.Twelve European experts from the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) and the Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology (AEPC) give their opinion on the indication, application and clinical relevance of CMR in each of the most frequent congenital heart lesions. Settings and techniques used in paediatric CMR, with particular attention to the peculiar aspects of imaging young children are also discussed in the first portion of the paper. Expert consensus key points are highlighted at the end of each topic and in clear break down tables. In the current era of multimodality imaging the readers will learn about the strengths of CMR compared to other imaging modalities, the anatomical and functional information obtained by CMR and how to integrate it in clinical decision making. Thanks to an updated and comprehensive reference list topics of special interest can be separately deepened.The recommendations provided are strongly clinically oriented and have been formulated to address not only imagers performing CMR, but also all clinical cardiologists involved in the care of patients with CHD and who may be increasingly exposed to CMR.
