Greetings

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

EACVI became a powerful community representing members from all over Europe with a mutual interest in cardiovascular imaging.
We look forward to the year 2017 to continue our work of promoting excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in Cardiovascular Imaging.

While much remains to be done, 2016 has put the EACVI community on a good path towards fulfilling its mission.

Season’s greetings and best wishes for a happy new year that fills your heart with joy!
