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. 


iPCI would like to thank the following sponsors:

Learning Objectives

  • Understand invasive plaque characterisation using existing technologies
  • Learn about state-of-the-art plaque characterisation using novel technologies and combined imaging modalities
  • Get hands-on experience with current IVUS and OCT modalities to recognise different types of plaque
  • Learn about the impact of pharmacotherapeutic agents on plaque progression
  • Learn how to assess the physiological impact of coronary plaques using the most recent technological developments
  • Learn how to do procedural planning using state-of-the-art coronary imaging and physiology tools
  • Understand the principles of PCI optimisation using intracoronary imaging and physiology

Target Audience

  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Biomedical Imaging Engineers
