Cardiovascular MR

“Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in ischemic heart disease”
Giso von der Recke, Bonn, Germany

Sunday, 26.08.2018, 14:00 - 15:30
Tuesday, 28.08.2018, 12:00 - 13:30

This practical tutorial offers the opportunity to read cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) studies together with an experienced interpreter. 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 magnetic resonance imaging in cardiomyopathies”
Giso von der Recke, Bonn, Germany

Monday, 27.08.2018, 14:00 - 15:30

This practical tutorial offers the opportunity to read cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) studies together with an experienced interpreter. 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.). Multiple clinical cases will be demonstrated on MR workstations. The participants will be able to read the studies themselves and interpret the findings.

Cardiovascular CT

“Spectral cardiac CT imaging”
Julian Wichmann, Frankfurt, Germany

Saturday, 25.08.2018, 10:00 - 11:30

Coronary CT angiography (cCTA) is a well-established technique for the evaluation of coronary artery patency and anatomy. Spectral CT applications, mainly dual energy CT, have been increasingly applied over recent years as they have been shown to improve image contrast and allow for myocardial tissue characterization. In contrast to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cardiac CT for evaluation of the myocardium remains limited by focal resolution and image contrast. By allowing for material characterization, spectral CT has been shown to improve the detection of myocardial disease, ranging from ischemic myocardium to late iodine enhancement. In addition, evaluation of the coronary vasculature can also be improved by increased intravascular contrast and reduction of beam-hardening artifacts from calcified plaque. The goal of this practical tutorial is to give an introduction on the basic principles and approaches of spectral CT of the heart and to provide an overview of clinical applications with valuable tips and tricks from routine practice. A presentation of clinical cases to showcase the potential of spectral CT in imaging of the heart completes this session.
 

“Cardiac CT for guiding minimal invasive interventions in heart disease”
Alfred Stadler, Vienna, Austria

Saturday, 25.08.2018, 14:00 - 15:30
Sunday, 26.08.2018, 10:00 - 11:30

Precise pre-procedural imaging is mandatory for successful planning and performance of several cardiac interventions. Today, cardiac CT is the standard non-invasive imaging modality capable of providing precise information required for many non-coronary and some coronary interventions. The capability of cardiac CT for the planning of different cardiac interventions and the key measurements especially in TAVI will be discussed in this session. Tips for structured reporting and guided analysis of clinical cases are integral part of this session.


“Coronary CT angiography – indication, examination and interpretation”
Matthias May, Erlangen, Germany

Monday, 27.08.2018, 12:00 - 13:30
Tuesday, 28.08.2018, 10:00 - 11:30

Evaluation of the coronary arteries is feasible by CT, however obtaining good image quality and a considerable clinical impact is often challenging. Many different indications are described in literature and examinations are run on a broad range of CT generations with different capabilities. This basic course offers an overview about consensus papers and current literature for optimized patient selection, provides information about general workflow and individual patient preparation, discusses protocol settings and adaptations in complex situations, and teaches different reading techniques in a hands-on tutorial. 

Ultrasound

"Assessing anatomy and measuring volumes and flow accurately, quickly and reproducibly by 3D echocardiography"
Nicolas Merke, Berlin, Germany

Saturday 25.08.2018, 12:00 - 13:30

Stroke Volume, Cardiac output and valve morphology are measured in most TTE and TEE exams irrespective of disease or diagnosis. This workshop will allow you to use techniques for aortic and mitral valve modeling using real‐time True‐Volume TEE data and also leverage true volume colour Doppler from TTE and TEE acquisitions and quantify Stroke Volume, Cardiac Output (HR), Regurgitant Fraction and Regurgitant Volume non-invasively, accurately, reproducibly and quickly.

“Artificial Intelligence technology for TTE and TEE to deliver measurement reproducibility and accelerate workflow”
Matthias Fröhde, Berlin, Germany

Saturday, 25.08.2018, 16:00 - 17:00
Tuesday, 28.08.2018, 14:00 - 15:30

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 and artificial intelligence to provide consistent and reproducible measurements of the left ventricle, aortic and mitral valves in 2D and 3D as well as spectral Doppler all performed with speed and reliability to advance the practice of echocardiography.
