Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The Department of Nuclear Medicine, London Health Sciences Centre, in London, Ontario, CANADA offers a one to two year Clinical Research Fellowship position in Cardiac SPECT/CT.
This fellowship provides an in-depth and cutting edge experience in clinical and clinical research myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) and coronary CT angiography (CCTA) using state-of the art SPECT/CT and CT equipment (1).The Department of Nuclear Medicine is part of the Academic Department of Medical Imaging at Western University, London, Ontario CANADA. The Nuclear Medicine Department has 7 fulltime and 2 part-time faculty members, 5 residents and 7 clinical fellows including 2 clinical fellows in the CT Angiography/Nuclear Cardiology program. The Nuclear Medicine Department is city-wide and performs more than 40,000 procedures/year, covering all aspects of diagnostic and therapeutic Nuclear Medicine including a large Radioimmunotherapy Program and a large Thyroid Clinical practice. The Nuclear Medicine practice is one of the largest and most comprehensive in North America. Over 3,000 Nuclear Cardiology studies and >600 coronary CTAs are performed annually in Nuclear Medicine. The department has 11 state-of-the-art SPECT cameras including 2 advanced cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) dedicated cardiac cameras, 5 SPECT/CT systems (one with 1 slice CT, two with 4-slice CT, one wiith 8-slice CT and one with 16-slice CT), a GE Discovery PET/CT and a 64-slice GE Lightspeed vCT (in process of being upgraded). In London CANADA, we have an animal microSPECT/CT, an animal microPET, a GE PETtrace 880 cyclotron Radiochemistry Facility and a research Siemens PET/MRI.
