“Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in cardiomyopathies”

Sunday, 27.08.2017, 13:00 – 14:30
Monday, 27.08.2017, 13:00 – 14:30

This session focuses on cardiomyopathies and myocarditis. Standard protocols will be demonstrated, including evaluation of cardiac function, and typical delayed enhancement phenomena for specific cardiac diseases (e.g. HCM, DCM, cardiac amyloidosis etc.).

“Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in ischemic heart disease”

Tuesday, 29.08.2017, 11:00 – 12:30

This session focuses on ischemic heart disease. Current standard protocols will be demonstrated, including evaluation of cardiac function, adenosine stress perfusion, and delayed enhancement. Many practical tips and tricks will be presented, for example, on how to speed up data acquisition or standardized interpretation.

Multiple clinical cases will be demonstrated on MR workstations. The participants of this tutorial will be able to read the studies themselves and interpret the findings.

“Cardiac CT imaging for myocardial ischemia – CT dynamic myocardial perfusion”

Sunday, 27.08.2017, 09:00 – 10:30

Coronary CT Angiography (cCTA) is well-established in diagnosing patients with significant coronary stenosis. However, there are many patients where the question of the hemodynamic significance of the stenosis remains. CT Dynamic Myocardial Perfusion Imaging offers the possibility to identify patients with myocardial ischemia that would benefit coronary revascularization. In this hands-on tutorial you will learn about our newest dose saving techniques for both cCTA and the main indications for CT Dynamic myocardial perfusion imaging, providing you with valuable tips and tricks to optimize your patient care and clinical workflow.

“CT cardiac imaging in challenging situations”

Monday, 28.08.2017, 15:00 – 16:30

Nowadays, high-end CTs offer accurate diagnostic imaging modality especially in the context of challenging situations such as advanced age, progressed disease state or irregular heart rhythm. A significant number of patients are unable to hold their breath, or to hold still at all. This hands-on tutorial will provide insight to our newest dose saving techniques and provide valuable tips how to achieve excellent quality in cardiac imaging especially in complex or challenging situations.

“CT for guiding structural heart disease interventions”

Saturday, 26.08.2017, 14:00 – 15:30
Monday, 28.08.2017, 11:00 – 12:30
Tuesday, 29.08.2017, 09:00 – 10:30

Pre-procedural imaging is essential for successful planning and performance of several cardiac interventions. Cardiac CT is a non-invasive imaging modality capable of providing precise information required for different coronary and non-coronary interventions. The role of cardiac CT for the guidance of different cardiac interventions e.g. TAVI, percutaneous management of paravalvular leaks and LAA occlusion will be discussed in this session.

A presentation of clinical cases completes these sessions.

Hands-on Tutorials on Echocardiography

“Valves are to Flow, as Flow is to Valves…clinical benefits of advancements in 3D TEE”

Sunday, 26.08.2017, 11:00 – 12:30

In this workshop you will be introduced to techniques for aortic and mitral valve modeling using real‐time True‐Volume TEE data. It will introduce you to capabilities of the Siemens true Volume TEE transducer that provides continuous high frame rate volume color Doppler data so you can understand form, function and flow comprehensively without having to make difficult trade‐offs.

 “Measure volume flow non-invasively, accurately, reproducibly and quickly in 3D”

Monday, 28.08.2017, 09:00 – 10:30
Tuesday, 29.08.2017, 13:00 – 14:30

Stroke Volume and Cardiac output are measured in every TTE and some TEE exams irrespective of disease or diagnosis. This workshop will allow you to leverage true volume colour Doppler from TTE and TEE acquisitions and quantify Strok Volume, Cardiac Output (HR), Regurgitant Fraction and Regurgitant Volume non-invasively, accurately, reproducibly and quickly.

“Learned pattern recognition technology in TTE and TEE to deliver measurement reproducibility and accelerate workflow”

Saturday, 26.08.2017, 16:00 – 17:30
Sunday, 27.08.2017, 15:00 – 16:30

Cardiac biometrics are routinely measured from echocardiograms to provide quantitative analysis of the human heart. This workshop will show how to use learned pattern recognition to provide consistent and reproducible measurements of spectral Doppler and the left ventricle in both 2D and 3D all performed with speed and fidelity to advance the practice of echocardiography.
