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 goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Promoting excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
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
Organised by EACVI: This short course covers the major items of the EACVI core syllabus for nuclear cardiology and provides a grounding in the theoretical and practical aspects of radionuclide imaging techniques in cardiology.
A series of talks will address the most important aspects of clinical nuclear cardiology, to include:
The talks will be complimented by discussion of clinical cases in small groups to simulate live reporting experience.
The course will be suitable for all professionals involved in using or delivering a nuclear cardiology service, whether medical, nursing or technical and whether cardiology, nuclear medicine or radiology based. It is particularly suitable for specialty trainees wishing to gain basic experience and for those wishing to progress to independent reporting.
