Overview

Currently, despite guidelines acknowledging the utility of imaging for pre-procedural planning, specific guidance is lacking.
 

This faculty-led, educational series has been devised to address that need and to provide practical guidance for pre-procedural imaging during the planning phases of atherosclerosis and ventricular arrythmia management.
 

For both disease states we provide a broad overview of the use of imaging through peer-to-peer discussion with therapy area experts; specific imaging applications are explored through faculty presented case reviews.

Supported by an unrestricted educational grant by Circle Cardiovascular Imaging

Objectives

  • Interpret existing clinical and meta data for use of pre-procedural, image-aided ablation in ventricular arrhythmias
  • Identify where pre-procedural imaging may complement the current ablation workflow in ventricular arrhythmias
  • Recall the clinical benefits of quantitative, MRI-based approaches to evaluate ischaemia
  • Apply quantitative CMR imaging to complement existing procedural workflows in revascularisation procedures

Recommended Audience

  • Electrophysiologists
  • Imaging Specialists
  • Cardiologists and Interventional Cardiologists
