The 2019 edition of the annual CMR congress of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), developed over the last few years into the largest European CMR conference, is taking place at the Lido of Venice, Italy from 4 to 6 May 2019, under the theme “Extending the clinical value of CMR through quality and evidence”.
The programme will focus on the existing and emerging evidence behind the established and potential clinical indications of CMR and highlight how high-quality research and clinical service provision can make a difference to patients and populations. Given the current limited financial resources available to healthcare, the conference will also discuss health economics relevant to cardiac imaging in a multi-modality context.
Among other noticeable interventions, Steffen Petersen (QMUL) and our Project Coordinator Karim Lekadir (UPF) from the euCanSHare consortium will be among the speakers. Prof. Petersen will be chairing various sessions, including “Quality through evidence and CMR innovation”, “Failing better: how do experienced researchers and clinicians manage inevitable failures?” and “Value of CMR in healthcare”. Dr Lekadir will be among the speakers of the “Advanced course III: post-processing and interpretation” with the presentation “
The conference is open to cardiologists, radiologists, radiographers, imaging scientists, MRI physicists, computer scientists, engineers, industry and other interested groups.
