3D Echo 360® will be held in Padua, Italy, from September the 21rd to September the 23th 2017.
The aim of 3D Echo 360® is to create an exciting international forum, in which clinicians, scientists and engineers can present their experience and discuss the latest technological advances, software solutions, as well as the newest evidence regarding research and clinical applications on 3D echocardiography. This year, the theme of 3D Echo 360° will be “Implementing 3D echocardiography to improve clinical practice”.
The meeting will start with the “Jos RCT Roelandt” Honorary Lecture by Prof J.A. Kisslo (Durham, US).
To fulfill the different educational needs of the participants, the 3D Echo 360® meeting has been organized in two tracks:
The Basic Track - practical and case-based, in which experts will demonstrate how to use the different software packages available on the market to postprocess 3D echocardiography data sets in order to obtain new data and improve our understanding of the anatomy of cardiac structures and the pathophysiology of cardiac conditions. This track will be particularly useful for those who want to understand the added clinical value of 3D over conventional echocardiography in different clinical scenarios and/or are at the beginning of their experience with 3D echocardiography.
The Advanced Track - more scientific, research and clinically oriented, dedicated for those who practice and have experience in 3D echocardiography. They will have be the opportunity to see the latest technical and software advances of the technique, to learn and discuss with the masters how to effectively implement 3D echocardiography and overcome the challenges of its routine clinical use, to share with the other experts the tips and tricks on how to use 3D echocardiography to plan and monitor interventional procedures.
