World leading experts in the field of cardiovascular CT from around the globe will discuss the current state of cardiovascular CT and the role it will play in 2019. Topics will include broadening clinical application, updates on technical optimization and discussion of current and future innovation and research in this rapidly evolving field.

SCCT Winter|2019: Dublin will explore all aspects of cardiovascular CT, including debates on areas of contention, with the aim of informing and educating participants on cardiovascular CT's strengths, weaknesses, and increasing clinical indications.

The objectives of this meeting are:

  1. To understand current best practices in cardiovascular CT in coronary artery disease, structural and congenital heart disease, electrophysiology and heart muscle and valve disease assessment.
  2. To be able to analyse whether cardiovascular CT is the most appropriate test to investigate cardiovascular pathology and be able to communicate the strengths and weaknesses of the technique compared with alternative imaging modalities.
  3.  To be aware of current research applications of cardiovascular CT that may impact on future clinical assessment.

RCPE Symposium Cardiology

Friday 2 November 2018

New developments in the management of cardiovascular disease are rapidly evolving, and new drugs provide new treatment options. The challenge remains to optimise their use, as well as identify patients most likely to benefit from these treatments.

The programme will examine patient selection and treatment decisions in conditions that have been the particular focus of recent clinical trials and technological advances. Topics include:

  • New developments in heart failure management
  • How best to manage lipids, hypertension and thrombosis.
  • Risk stratification and targeting management in acute coronary syndrome and venous thromboembolism
  • Cardiology in the emergency room
  • New techniques and devices in monitoring patients

This symposium will target clinicians, general practitioners, trainees, physiologists and all other health professionals involved in cardiac care.

On-line registration is now open with an early bird fee available until 4 October 2018.
