Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) take a huge toll on our society and represent the leading cause of death in industrialized countries. Many of these deaths could be averted with appropriate detection (by imaging) of the disease at a preclinical stage or early after the onset of symptoms. So, when I was chairman of the meeting, I felt very honoured to be deeply involved in widening the scope of the EuroEcho meeting into EuroEcho & other imaging modalities. The change in the meeting objective into a patient oriented congress was at the very heart of the association and served to tackle CVD. The following quote represented best the spirit of such a move and collaborations between all CV imagingleaders.
“Coming together is a beginning”
“Keeping together is progress”
“Working together is success”
