EuroCMR 2016 opens the doors today in the lovely city of Florence with a new record number of approximately 800 people including delegates, faculty, and exhibitors. There is also a new record number of abstracts that have been submitted for the exchange of important research. The meeting is organised by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) and focuses on education in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging, exchange of actual research both preclinically and clinically in the field, and also on showing the most recent technical advancements. The meeting has emerged to the most important CMR meeting in Europe and also offers several symposia where were organized in collaboration with multiple partner associations and industries.
The keynote lecture today with the title “The double-edged sword of reperfusion in myocardial infarction: the role of CMR” presented by Prof. Albert van Rossum will focus on the role of CMR for imaging of myocardial infarction. CMR has unique opportunities due to the excellent imaging properties for tissue characterization. It allows imaging of the area at risk, the infarct size and also potential measures of reperfusion injury such as microvascular obstruction and also hemorrhage. Several of these parameters offer prognostic information and allow to risk stratify patients. Furthermore, and even more important CMR provides the unique option to find new methods for the prevention of reperfusion injury since it is for the first time possible to measure reperfusion injury in humans non-invasively.
This keynote lecture by the well-known pioneer in CMR and distinguished researcher Prof. Albert van Rossum will set the scene for the overall conference which allows the exchange of current and future clinical applications of CMR within the next 3 days.
