This discussion is to inform and educate interventional cardiologists on:

  • The existing technologies available to treat calcified lesions
  • How expert operators are deploying these technologies in their daily practice
  • Emerging Technologies that may improve patient outcomes
  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Interventional Fellows
  • Allied Healthcare Professionals
