Imaging Toolbox on CRT

Learn from the experts in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), cardiac mechanic and mechanical dyssynchrony.

The EACVI Multimodality Imaging Toolbox on CRT contains a selection of presentations, webcasts, clinical cases, lectures, references and recommendations to help you in your day to day practice.


The programme is composed of 7 parts, as follows:

 Part 1: Webcasts and presentations

A selection of webcasts and presentations from ESC and EACVI congresses



 Part 2: Teaching course on CRT


  • Imaging in CRT (Erwan Donal)
  • Imaging guided CRT after the ECHO-CRT study (Johan De Sutter)
  • Imaging left ventricular dyssynchrony (Otto A. Smiseth)
  • Echocardiographic parameters to select patients for CRT (Ivan Stankovic)
  • Resynchronization Therapy: How to Assess Ventricular Mechanics? (Jens-Uwe Voigt)



 Part 3: Clinical Cases

A selection of interesting clinical cases, submitted by international experts

  • 3 cases pre and post CRT according to current guidelines (Erwan DONAL, Auriane BIDAUD, Elena GALLI)
  • Optimization of cardiac resynchronisation therapy: LV Lead position, qLV, or paced effects? (EP Case Report, Niraj Varma, Raja Ghanem, and Ping Jia)
  • Hybrid cardiac resynchronization with leadless pacemaker and transvenous coronary sinus lead (EP Case Report, Sit-Yee Kwok and Hung-Fat Tse2)



 Part 4: References and Library

  • The list of references used in the PowerPoint presentations
  • A selection of relevant articles and publications on CRT (Nina Hasselberg and Anne Bernard)



 Part 5: Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you want and need to know about echocardiography and CRT! (Donato Mele)



 Part 6: Pathophysiology of electromechanical dyssynchrony


  • Mechanisms of Syssynchronous Heart Failure and its treatment
  • CircAdapt Simulator v1.1.0 Tutorial: How to simulate your virtual patient?


  • Computer model-assisted characterisation of the dyssynchronous heart (Joost Lumens)
  • CircAdapt Simulator, interactive simulation tool for teaching cardiovascular (patho)physiology (Joost Lumens)





 Part 7: webinars

  • Multi-modality imaging in dilated cardiomyopathy and CRT (Chiara Bucciarelli-Ducci, Nina Ajmone Marsan, Erwan Donal)
  • How and why to measure LV myocardial strain according to EACVI/ASE standards and Industry Task Force activities (Jens-Uwe Voigt, Thor Edvardsen, Luigi Badano)
