Congress alert: EUROECHO and Other Imaging Modalities: New patient emphasis
Date:10/24/2011

EAE President Doctor Luigi Badano, FESC, from the University of Padua, Italy, explains, "To manage cardiac patients today we need to acquire information from all the different imaging modalities, not just Echo. As an association of the ESC, the EAE's philosophy is that we want to become more patient oriented, rather than pure technology oriented, so that we're using the most appropriate technology to address individual clinical questions." In addition to Echo therefore, he adds, the meeting will now include magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and nuclear imaging.

EUROECHO & other Imaging Modalities, which expects to attract over 3,000 delegates from 87 countries including cardiologists, internists, cardiac surgeons and sonographers, will see seven parallel sessions running across four days. "The conference represents a unique opportunity for cardiovascular imagers to come together. There will be teaching sessions for those new to the field, advanced techniques for the more experienced and the latest advances will be presented in over 690 posters and abstracts. You'll get the opportunity to interact with leading imaging experts from all over the world and try out new technology in the exhibition," says Professor Patrizio Lancellotti, FESC, EAE President-Elect, from the University of Lige, Belgium. The organisers hope that the Eastern European location of the meeting, which is being held for the first time in Budapest, will enable cardiologists from eastern Europe to attend more easily.

The main themes of this year's meeting are valvular heart disease and left ventricular function. In the sessions on valvular heart disease delegates will learn how risk stratification using the different imaging modalities is allowing identification of asymptomatic patients who will benefit from earlier surgery. The role of 3D echocardiography in assessing the likelihood of mitral valve repair is growing. Although one of the earliest applications of
