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.

Head of Interventional Cardiology
Prof Javier Escaned is Head of the Interventional Cardiology Section at Hospital Clinico San Carlos (Madrid, Spain). He trained as a cardiologist in the United Kingdom (Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Birmingham and Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry) before moving to the Thoraxcenter/Rotterdam (The Netherlands), where he obtained his PhD degree in 1994.
He has authored over 300 scientific articles, books and book chapters on different aspects of interventional cardiology; his latest contribution is Coronary Stenosis. Imaging, Structure and Physiology, a large textbook endorsed by the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions/European Society of Cardiology (EAPCI/ESC), with its latest edition published in 2015. His main interests in the field of interventional cardiology include intracoronary imaging and physiology, complex percutaneous coronary intervention including chronic total occlusion recanalisation, and acute coronary syndromes.
Professor of Experimental Cardiology
Dr Dirk Duncker attended Erasmus University Rotterdam, and earned his MSc degree in 1984. He interrupted his medical studies to obtain a PhD in Pharmacology in 1988, and went on to complete his medical training in 1989. His research interests include regulation of coronary blood flow and cardiac function in health, as well as a variety of cardiovascular disorders.
Prof Duncker is currently Professor of Experimental Cardiology at the University Medical Center Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Previously, Prof Duncker has worked as a Post-Doctorate Research Fellow in the Laboratory for Experimental Cardiology at Erasmus Medical Center between 1989 – 1991, before…
