Noninvasive Imaging Learning Pathway

Use the ACC.18 Online Planner to browse sessions and start building your itinerary.

The Noninvasive Imaging Learning Pathway will feature a broad array of educational content that crosses all modalities in cardiovascular imaging and encompasses a full spectrum of clinical applications, emerging techniques and research innovations.

The pathway features a mix of disease-based multimodality imaging sessions, updates on technical advances in each modality, discussions on the integration of imaging and interventional planning, and comparisons and debates regarding the modalities in a variety of clinical scenarios. Span different cardiac specialties and review the application of echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography in patients undergoing structural heart disease interventions. And learn about the growing field of cardio-oncology.

Delve into the role of imaging for the diagnosis and management of cardiac amyloidosis and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, optimal imaging of the right ventricle, and the application of stress echocardiography for a variety of clinical indications. Discuss current areas of controversy in the fields of cardiac CT, MRI and echocardiography to help you fine-tune your imaging decisions. Debate the role and value of imaging and hear highlights of cutting-edge advances in the imaging field that you may soon use in your practices to improve patient outcomes.

Get a review of imaging research by Y. S. Chandrashekhar, MD, the new editor-in-chief of JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging during session #909: Highlighted Original Research: NonInvasive Imaging and the Year in Review. Participate in case-based sessions and review recent guidelines with experts.

You’ll find innovative thinking and creative problem solving with technology when you join us for ACC.18, to enhance your knowledge of how effective and innovative use of noninvasive imaging can expand your ability to care for your patients.
