EACVI Communities

The EACVI is the central voice for the Cardiovascular Imaging community in Europe and plays a leadership role in the Cardiovascular Imaging world.

Creating and maintaining strong links with the European Working Groups and Affiliated Societies are essential for sharing and implementing the latest research and technical developments, as well as harmonising the standards of excellence.


An extensive international network of:

  • Over 100 European National Societies & Working Groups of non invasive Cardiovascular Imaging.
  • Over 30 Affiliated Societies in North and South America, Asia and the Middle East.
