Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate 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 mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
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.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Prof. N. Cardim, Multimodality Cardiac Imaging Department, Hospital da Luz, Lisbon, Portugal
“Reflecting the multi-modality nature of EuroEcho-Imaging and our Association, the major scientific topics next year in Lisbon will be on the use of multi-modality imaging in heart failure and in the cath lab (percutaneous valves and devices, closure of the left atrial appendage, of atrial septal defects and patent Foramen Ovale, among others). These major topics highlight not only the increasing role of echocardiography but also the importance of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging, nuclear imaging (NI) and cardiac computed tomography (CCT) in modern cardiology. Several major projects will be presented at EuroEcho–Imaging 2017 in Lisbon including: preliminary results from EuroCRT, a key European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) project to detect which imaging parameters can identify responders to cardiac resynchronization therapy; the European Endocarditis Registry (EURO-ENDO), in which imaging plays a major role; and, the IMPROVED ICD study (scheduled to start in 2017) which aims to determine the potential incremental role of myocardial strain (with 2Dspeckle tracking echocardiography) over conventional methods in the selection of patients for implantable cardioverter defibrillators. All these will be discussed in EuroEcho- Imaging 2017 and complemented by major scientific advances on CMR, NI and CCT.
The weather in December is usually nice and pleasant, Portuguese people are warm and friendly, we have excellent food, nice accommodation and an exciting nightlife. Lisbon has a vibrant cultural life, and the brand-new Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT) is close to the venue. And, Portugal is trendy! We won the UEFA European Championship in 2016, and former Prime Minister António Guterres was elected Secretary- General of the United Nations. We also look forward to strong participation from Portuguese speaking countries. Join us for EuroEcho-Imaging 2017 in Lisbon next December!”
