Cardiovascular events remain one of the most frequent causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide. The majority of cardiac events occur in individuals without known coronary artery disease (CAD) and in low- to intermediate-risk subjects.

This summary reflects our brainstorm activities focused on the topic “…what we don’t know but should know…” in the field of cardiac imaging and cardiology in general.

On one hand we had stimulating talks as a basis for the following discussion parts. On the other hand we wanted to try a new platform for our exchange and our discussions: The “think – tanks”. In these think – tanks we worked and discussed in smaller groups (5-6 participants) and shared our ideas with respect to different topics.

The think – tank participants were randomly assigned to a group which were coached by experts in the field, allowing knowledge transfer from master to fellow and from fellow to master, allowing also discussions in an easy and stimulating
atmosphere.
