Imaging speeds early diagnosis of heart disease, the top killer in the Western world

to present and discuss the most up-to-date research and clinical findings in echocardiography and cardiovascular imaging," said Professor Lancellotti. "The most exciting part of the meeting will be dedicated to how new technology on echocardiography (contrast echo, tissue Doppler imaging, 3D echo, stress echocardiography) and other modalities can enter the clinical arena in the interest of the patient."

The second theme of the congress is non-invasive cardiovascular imaging techniques and outcome. Professor Lancellotti said: "A rapid echo-guided puncture of a pericardial effusion can save the life of a patient with cardiac tamponade."

He added: "Most often, imaging outcome is derived from risk stratification and detection of any cardiac involvement at an earlier stage. Early detection is of importance because early intervention may slow down the progression of the disease or appropriate follow-up monitoring can be started."

New echocardiographic techniques such as tissue Doppler imaging and 2D speckle tracking of myocardial dysfunction enable detection of subtle abnormalities in left ventricular function before any changes in ejection fraction (used to define a normal function). Imaging can also be used to detect cardiotoxicity of cancer drugs. Professor Lancellotti said: "We cannot necessarily prevent the cardiotoxicity but we can detect the cardiac effect earlier and then adapt the treatment."

Special sessions have been organised for delegates under the age of 35 by the EACVI Club 353 committee. EACVI membership in this age group has increased from 5% to 25% over the past year. For the first time this year there will be two young investigator awards, one for clinical research and one for basic research.

Professor Badano concluded: "Today it is not just echocardiography that can improve patient outcome, but also magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and nuclear cardiology. Cardiovascular imaging can be used to
