ESCR EDUCATIONAL WEBINAR 04
"The transplanted heart"
April 11, 2018, 17:00 CET
Speaker: Prof.Dr. Matthias Gutberlet, Leipzig/DE
Moderator: Dr. Riccardo Marano, Rome/IT
Endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) is still considered to be the gold standard for the diagnosis of acute cellular rejection (ACR) after orthotopic heart transplantation (HTx), which is one of the initial complications of HTx and might be detected non-invasively with CMR using similar techniques like in myocarditis. The detection of even subclinical ACR might be important, because repeated subclinical ACRs are known to trigger the development of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV), a major long-term cause of graft failure after HTx. CAV might be detected with MDCT earlier as compared to invasive coronary angiography (ICA).
- To learn about the clinical features of HTx patients
- To learn about the different CMR techniques used to detect ACR
- To learn about the different CT-techniques to assess CAV
Registration is open and free for all active ESCR members.
ESCR Educational Webinar 04 - Registration
The ESCR ExCom has recently decided on guidelines for endorsement of local/national meetings/workshops on cardiovascular imaging. More information is now available here. In the future the application for ESCR endorsement of your events should be submitted to the ESCR office in Vienna at least 6 months in advance to allow the Scientific Committee and Education Committtee chairs as well as the ESCR Executibe Committee to make a decision.
