Advances in Co-registration, Coronary Physiology & Intra Coronary Imaging

Advances in Co-registration, Coronary Physiology & Intra Coronary Imaging  is the premier international course focusing on intracoronary co-registration run by a leading and world renowned international faculty.  This course is specialising in coronary co-registration, and builds on the 8 years of courses which have been run and quickly established as the leading global interventional course in state-of-the-art coronary physiology and intracoronary imaging. This course provides all you need to know to understand coronary physiology from learning the background basics of coronary physiology and imaging to understanding the clinical trial data and implementation of co-registration in the catheter laboratory. The course is centred around live case demonstrations, case examples, and break out sessions to ensure that you can integrate new knowledge into your clinical practice.  

An online teaching resource, the Simple Education application, will give you access to video content from the talks, in addition to a raft of other online educational and learning resources which continue your learning experience and connect you with the interventional community after the course finishes.

Advances in Co-registration, Coronary Physiology & Intra Coronary Imaging  Course provides all you need to know to understand the basics of coronary physiology and imaging and how to implement both using co-registration into the cardiac catheter laboratory.
