This webinar is to inform and educate cardiologists on:
  • Understand how to select patients suitable for PCI using the latest physiological techniques
  • Attain first hand knowledge in iFR and iFR Scout
  • Use Sync-Vision to demonstrate co-registration between IVUS and Angiography
  • Understand how clinical trial evidence is evolving to increase appropriate PCI use in patients with complex and multi-vessel disease
  • Interventional Cardiologists and Interventional Fellows performing PCI
  • Nurses and catheter laboratory technicians
  • Medical and physiology students
