Deliver outcomes that matter to patients - Connected imaging to treat the complex valves
Primary topic: Structural Heart Disease, LAAC / Mitral Valve Interventions / Tricuspid Valve Interventions
Learning objectives: Interventional valvular therapies are expanding into the mitral and tricuspid space. For optimal patient outcomes imaging is crucial. From initial diagnostics over preprocedural planning to intraprocedural guidance. Learn how innovative techniques like ICE and image fusion allow to treat even the most challenging patients.
Chairpersons: Prof. Francesco Maisano, Prof. Eustachio Agricola and Prof. Jörg Hausleiter
20 min Presentation 1: CT-based planning and image fusion guidance for structural interventions - Nicolas van Mieghem
20 min Presentation 2: Integrated TEE guidance for complex valve interventions with TrueFusion - Helge Möllmann
20 min Presentation 3: New dimensions in intracardiac echo (ICE) imaging - José Ribeiro

Transforming patient care delivery: high-sensitivity cardiac troponin-i and cardiac imaging for the early diagnosis of myocardial infarction
Primary topic: non-invasive diagnostic methods
Learning objectives: High sensitivity troponin assays can facilitate early rule out of acute myocardial infarction. The latest High-STEACS data documenting the performance of hs-cTnI (Atellica® Solution Analyzer) will be presented in addition to a presentation featuring the incremental value of myocardial mapping for selected ACS patients.
Chairperson: Dr. Chris DeFilippi
