Multimodality Imaging Toolkit on Aortic Stenosis

A tool for day to day practice that meets professionals’ needs

Everything you want and need to know about Imaging in Aortic Stenosis in one unique setting, prepared by the best specialists of the disease around the world.

The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging - EACVI Multimodality Imaging Toolkit in Aortic Stenosis contains presentations, tutorials, webcasts, clinical cases, lectures, references, and recommendations.

The novelty of this project is the advantage of assessing a pathology using four imaging techniques (Echocardiography, Cardiac Magnetic Resonance, Nuclear Cardiology & Cardiac Computed Tomography) represented within the EACVI.

The programme is composed of 7 parts, as follows:

 Part 1: Tutorials


  • Role of echocardiography in assessment of aortic stenosis (Jean Luc Monin)
  • CMR Stress Perfusion and Ischemic Heart Disease (Eike Nagel & Chiara Bucciarelli-Ducci)
  • Assessment of Aorta and Aortic Disease by CMR (Philip Kilner & Sven Plein)




 Part 2: Powerpoint presentations on Imaging in Aortic Stenosis


  • Echocardiography in aortic stenosis - difficult situations and guidelines (Gilbert Habib)
  • Role of stress echocardiography in AS (Patrizio Lancellotti)
  • Role of cardiac CT in aortic stenosis (Victoria Delgado)
  • Deformation Imaging of Aortic Valve Stenosis (Erwan Donal)
  • Role of MRI in aortic stenosis (João L. Cavalcante and Gerry McCann)
  • Role of PET CT (Marc Dweck)
  • LF LG aortic stenosis: low LVEF (Jean Luc Monin)
  • LF LG aortic stenosis: normal LVEF (Philippe Pibarot)



 Part 3: Congress reports from Eurovalve 2015


  • Improving risk stratification with imaging in Asymptomatic Severe Aortic Stenosis
  • Exercise Testing/Echocardiography in Asymptomatic AS (Raluca Dulgheru, Belgium)
  • Valve Calcification by CT (David Messika-Zeitoun, France)
  • Neurohormones (Jutta Bergler-Klein, Austria)
  • Myocardial fibrosis with MRI (Victoria Delgado, The Netherlands)



 Part 4: Webinar - Imaging in TAVI procedures


  • Acquire a perfect knowledge of the role of TTE and TOE for the selection of patients for assessment of aortic stenosis, for selection of patients for TAVI procedure and during TAVI procedure.
  • Acquire information and knowledge about the role of Cardiac and vascular CT for the selection of patients before TAVI.
  • Acquire knowledge about the role of other imaging techniques (PET/ Ct – MRI) and the respective indications of each of these techniques.
  • Learn how imaging may guide the choice between conventional surgery and TAVI in q patient with severe aortic stenosis?
  • Learn how patients with AS should be followed up by imaging after TAVI and how the results of this imaging may influence outcomes.



 Part 5: Interview debate - Imaging in Aortic Stenosis


  • Which imaging technique for which patient? (chair: Bernard Cosyns)
  • Echocardiography is better (Andreas Hagendorff)
  • Cardiac CT is better (Victoria Delgado)



  • Now also includes: Hot topics in imaging aortic stenosis
    ESCTV interview hosted by Victoria Delgado featuring Philippe Pibarot, during EuroEcho-Imaging 2017





 Part 6: References and Guidelines

  • The list of references used in the PowerPoint presentations
  • A selection of EACVI recommendations on Imaging in Aortic Stenosis



 Part 7: Clinical Cases

A selection of interesting clinical cases, submitted by international experts

  • Severe aortic stenosis
  • Subaortic membrane mimicking aortic stenosis
  • Post TAVI iatrogenic shunt
  • Radiotherapy-induced calcification of both aortic and mitral valves
  • Aortic regurgitation with Austin Flint effect
  • Severe AS- Quantitation with phase contrast imaging
  • Quadricuspid aortic valve with severe regurgitation
  • Prosthetic aortic valve with a fistula from the aortic valve to the right ventricle
  • Bicuspid aortic valve on a patient with Turner's syndrome
  • Severe aortic stenosis on a functionally bicuspid valve
  • TAVI procedure
  • CMR assessment of a bicuspid aortic valve
  • New presentation of atrial fibrillation on a patient with a bicuspid aortic valve with mixed disease
  • Patient with a previous implantation of a mitral Starr Edwards - new discovery of moderate AR on a bicuspid aortic valve
