Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
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 through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Improving the quality of life and reducing sudden cardiac death by limiting the impact of heart rhythm disturbances.
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 practicing in specific cardiology domains.
The European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Working Group on e-Cardiology are proudly announcing the collaboration between the two communities. This decision comes after a recent meeting of the Working Group nucleus with the president of EHRA, Angelo Auricchio.
In order to cope with its mission - To improve the quality of life of the European population by reducing the impact of cardiac arrhythmias and reduce sudden cardiac death – the EHRA Board felt important to include in its activities key aspects covered by the ESC Working Group on e-Cardiology. The scope of the ESC Working Group on e-Cardiology encompasses the wide area of specialised computer methods in cardiovascular image processing (quantitative angiography, intravascular ultrasound, echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance), image fusion, bio-signal processing (ECG analysis, arrhythmia detection), signal modeling, databases, and intra- and inter-hospital communication (internet, telemedicine, IHE).
The Working Group on e-Cardiology appreciates the importance of collaboration with other communities within ESC. For a number of years, the Working Group has been joining forces with other imaging groups in the Council of Cardiovascular Imaging, and has organised sessions during the EuroEcho congresses, in collaboration with the European Association of Echocardiography (EAE).
EHRA has agreed with the Working Group on e-Cardiology to join forces in a number of ways:
The Working Group on e-Cardiology represents the second ESC Working Group with which EHRA has officially agreed to collaborate. Indeed, under the presidency of Professor Panos Vardas, EHRA entered into an official agreement with the ESC Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology. EHRA and the two Working Groups have agreed to jointly conduct the EHRA EUROPACE 2013 scientific meeting in June 2013. Angelo Auricchio, MD PhD FESC Enno Van der Velde, PhD, FESC
