EuroEcho 2019: Where digital health meets echocardiography

The 23rd annual congress of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) will take place from December 4 – 7, 2019 at Reed Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center.

VIENNA (26th November 2019) The most up-to-date research and clinical findings on the broader spectrum of echocardiography alongside with the other cardiovascular imaging modalities will be presented and discussed during EuroEcho 2019, taking place in Vienna this year.

The scientific programme will feature a total of 160 sessions with research selected from over 1600 scientific abstracts, 20 hands-on sessions, 20 industry sponsored sessions and workshops as well as a technical exhibition will complement the scientific offer of the congress.

Two Young Investigator Award competitions will honour the best clinical and the best basic science presentations. The best original research will also be rewarded during the congress. The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging expects 4200 healthcare professionals at the Vienna congress, representing nearly 100 countries.

Novel research presented covers amongst others – Can Artificial Intelligence transform echocardiography training? Machine learning for point-of-care cardiac assessment, Virtual reality for education in congenital heart disease and preventing heart damage from chemotherapy in cancer patients. Prof. Bernard Cosyns, EuroEcho Scientific Co-Chair says: Artificial Intelligence is the hottest topic across medicine. The meeting will showcase future uses of Artificial Intelligence in imaging, such as phenotyping specific patient populations. Attendees will also witness interactive virtual reality allowing users to rotate images, swap between 2D and 3D, and make more accurate measurements.”

This year’s main themes are Cardiomyopathies and Imaging in Acute Cardiac Care. Standard and advanced echocardiographic techniques are fundamental for diagnosis, risk stratification and management in both scenarios. Martina Candillo, Director Congresses & Events, Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center adds: “On behalf of Reed Messe Wien & Congress Center I am more than happy to welcome again the European Society of Cardiology with another leading event, EuroEcho, in Cardiology. Already in 2014, we were host to the most successful EuroEcho in history. Again we will provide the best environment for scientific exchange, continuing education and networking to make the congress another successful one for everybody involved.”
