Visiting Professorship Programme Belarus

Advanced Cardiac Imaging
November 23, 2017; Minsk/Belarus
Course informationThis visiting professorship is focused on advanced cardiac imaging and is aimed at senior residents and board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in cardiovascular radiology. The course is organized as an intensive one day event and will combine state-of-the-art lectures and associated case-based workshops. The purpose of this Visiting Professorship in Minsk is to consolidate the knowledge in cardiac radiology and to provide an integrated, disease-oriented view into state-of-the-art cardiac imaging. The present course is focused on well-established and even emerging clinical applications of cardiac CT and cardiac MR in both emergencies as well as in more elective situations. The topics covered in this course include the role of imaging in acute chest pain and acute aortic syndromes, as well the differentiation of myocardial diseases based in MR derived biomarkers and the role of cardiac imaging in pericardial diseases. The faculty consists of internationally renowned European speakers sharing their expertise in clinical radiology and in education and their best cases.
