Advances in Intravascular Imaging

A PRACTICAL COURSE ON THE USE OF INTRAVASCULAR ULTRASOUND

The Simple Education team have run many successful courses over the last five years, demystifying the use of coronary physiology in the cath lab for thousands of doctors from around the world.

The philosophy of Advances in Intravascular Imaging is to go beyond what is normally covered in imaging courses or during conferences, and take time in a relaxed and informal manner to explore the latest clinical evidence, structured case-based lectures on identification of thrombus, dissection, malapposition, etc., and hands on experience in break-out sessions.
