Welcome to Lisbon for EuroEcho-Imaging 2017 congress.

The EuroEcho-Imaging congress is the world’s largest cardiovascular imaging congress

We are delighted to announce that the next official annual congress of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) will take place in Lisbon from 6-9 December 2017. 

Over the years, EuroEcho-Imaging has grown more and more to become the world’s largest cardiovascular imaging congress. The main themes of the 2017 congress are imaging in heart failure and interventional imaging.

The aim of EuroEcho-Imaging will be to create an exciting forum, in which both clinicians and scientists can present and discuss the most up-to-date research and clinical findings on the broader spectrum of echocardiography alongside with the other cardiovascular imaging modalities. Cardiologists, physicians from other specialities and imagers who use these cardiac and vascular imaging techniques will interact to discuss how to ideally use all the capabilities offered by these techniques and how to further develop them in the near future.
An educational track will run throughout the congress, featuring several specifically designed courses and sessions. Young cardiologists and researchers will be stimulated and supported through the three Young Investigator Award competitions (clinical, basic science, clinical case).

Also, dedicated initiatives will reward the best original research.
However, EuroEcho-Imaging is more than just education and science. It is also a fantastic opportunity to meet the greatest experts in cardiovascular imaging in the world, to exchange ideas and projects with colleagues who share the same clinical or scientific interest coming from all over the world.
EuroEcho-Imaging attracted over 3 200 attendees from 90 countries last year and it is the place where one can meet with world renowned experts in the field of cardiovascular imaging.

We look forward to welcoming you in Lisbon for another great edition of EuroEcho Imaging.
