This Year’s Spotlight: Cardiac Imaging


“The eyes of the cardiologist"

This topic is of extraordinary importance as it is the basis of sound clinical decision making and diagnosis. It is relevant for the field of cardiology and vascular medicine and all cardiology subspecialties.

The programme highlights novel diagnostic tools, the importance of multimodality imaging and the new field of imaging guidance for cardiovascular interventions.
