Overview

iPCI 2023 was a live two-day event, held on the 13–14 April at the LantarenVenster theatre in Rotterdam, NL. Focusing on image guidance techniques in interventional cardiology, with an educational focus on state-of-the-art imaging and physiology research, iPCI was led by a global faculty of over 35 physicians and engineers.

 

Led by Course Directors Dr Joost Daemen and Prof Dr Gijs van Soest (Thoraxcenter, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, NL) iPCI aimed to optimise theoretical and practical education to maximise patient outcomes.

 

iPCI is a successor of Optics in Cardiology, which ran five exciting editions from 2011. For the first time, the dissemination of iPCI sessions extended beyond the venue – a free-to-access live virtual broadcast was open to physicians globally.
