ICNC-CT 2021 Virtual: Get ready for innovations in cardiovascular imaging

European Society of Cardiology

Scientific Meeting Announcement

9 to 11 May online

What's on the horizon in cardiac imaging? Find out at ICNC-CT 2021 Virtual, the online meeting where clinicians and scientists from around the world gather for the latest updates on state-of-the-art nuclear cardiology and cardiac computed tomography (CT).

The congress will be held 9 to 11 May online. Explore the scientific programme.

ICNC-CT is the online International Conference on Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac CT (ICNC-CT) - co-organised by the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), and the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM).

Featuring novel research in cardiac imaging. Including machine learning to predict the cause of death in patients with heart failure, imaging to monitor heart function in breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, and innovative uses of imaging during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Alessia Gimelli, EACVI scientific programme co-chairperson, said: "Don't miss this exciting opportunity to attend ICNC-CT, the main congress dedicated to nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT. From clinical innovation to artificial intelligence, all the new advances will be discussed with leading experts, including how to reduce COVID-19 exposure during procedures and emerging tracers in molecular cardiovascular imaging."

Dr. Riemer Slart, EANM scientific programme co-chairperson, said: "ICNC-CT brings together cardiovascular imaging experts from different fields, integrating technical aspects with clinical applicability - with the ultimate goal of improving patient care. For example, we take a look at how different imaging methods might improve the prediction of adverse outcomes in asymptomatic patients with coronary artery disease."

Dr. Brian Abbott, ASNC scientific programme co-chairperson, said: "ICNC-CT, convening virtually for the first time this year, will showcase the latest science, cutting-edge research, and highlight novel clinical applications and best practice in the image-guided management of cardiovascular disease."

About the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging

The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) - a branch of the ESC - is the world leading network of Cardiovascular Imaging (CVI) bringing together experts from all techniques: Echocardiography, Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac Computed Tomography.

About the European Society of Cardiology

The European Society of Cardiology brings together health care professionals from more than 150 countries, working to advance cardiovascular medicine and help people lead longer, healthier lives.

About the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC)

ASNC, located in Fairfax (Virginia, USA) is committed to excellence in imaging. Representing over 4,500 nuclear cardiologists, radiologists, technologists, scientists and academics all over the world. ASNC is the leader in the development of established standards of care and guidelines in nuclear cardiovascular imaging. ASNC continuously supports the advancement of the profession through education, research, and advocacy.

About the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM)

The European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) is the largest organisation dedicated to nuclear medicine and multimodality imaging in Europe, with a strong focus on interdisciplinary. This is especially reflected in the educational offers of the European School of Multimodality Imaging and Therapy (ESMIT) and the programme of the EANM Annual Congress.
