Consensus and Position Papers on Cardiovascular Imaging

European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging

Publishing scientific papers and recommendations is a core activity for the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI).

While a patient-centric approach leads the association to publish multi-imaging recommendations, focus is also given to each modality governed by the EACVI.

EACVI Compendium 

Specialists from all cardiaovascular imaging modalities have joined their expertise to create a compilation of recommendations and expert consensus statements. This Compendium guides the practice of cardiovascular imaging to provide the best healthcare experience. 

The compendium gathers documents published in the European Heart Journal - Cardiovascular Imaging including the most recent expert consensus papers.
