Welcome to the European Society of Cardiology. Our mission: to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe
 

Cardiovascular Imaging

European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI)

To promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
EACVI Teaching Course on Echocardiography by the EACVI Club 35

The EACVI Club 35 is proud to announce, in collaboration with the Bulgarian Working Group of Echocardiography, the launch of its teaching course specifically tailored for young cardiologists in training.

eLearning, professional unity and accreditation among new ESC President’s top priorities

Fausto Pinto, who became President of the ESC today, says plans to strengthen the accreditation systems in cardiology, the ESC eLearning platform and the role of the Society in Brussels will be high on his agenda:  'Why should patients accept treatment by doctors unless they’ve the confidence in knowing they’ve achieved pre-defined levels of proficiency.'

Prof. J. RTC. Roelandt's obituary

Friends and ESC colleagues were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Professor Jos Roelandt, a former chairman of the ESC Working Group on Echocardiography (1976-82) and president of the Dutch Society of Cardiology (1995-97). Professor Roelandt, who was Emeritus Chairman of the Thoraxcentre, Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam and a founding editor of the European Journal of Echocardiography in 1999, passed away at the end of August. The ESC sends its sincere condolences to his wife and family.

Launch of a new platform for Clinical cases
The aim of this clinical case portal is to promote and improve collaboration and knowledge sharing on cardiac imaging and related clinical experience.

Access and share exciting cases with cardiologists from all around the world, improve your knowledge in cardiac imaging modality fields
Adapting to a changing environment in research, education and technology

With medicine at a cross-roads for ‘critical change’, ESC President Professor Panos Vardas said it was ‘imperative’ for the Society to adapt to fast evolving modern environments.  Read more

The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) has evolved into a multi-modality Association through collaboration of the former European Association of Echocardiography (EAE), the ESC Working Group on Nuclear Cardiology & Cardiac Computed Tomography (ESC WG on NC &CCT) and the ESC Working Group on Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (ESC WG on CMR). EACVI unified structure 2014
In the new structure, the three ESC constituent bodies will work closely together on all aspects of cardiovascular imaging represented by the three entities with a particular focus on education, training and scientific initiatives.

This collaboration between specialists from Echocardiography, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance and Nuclear Cardiology & Cardiac Computed Tomography not only reflects the importance of moving from a technology focused to more patient centric approach, but allows for better information sharing and exchange within the association. The new structure has been put in place to integrate all modalities. The committees will develop projects and implement the strategy defined by the Board. The Sections will ensure representation of their entity within the Board and the Committees. Discover the sections:
