ESCR EDUCATIONAL WEBINAR 10
"Acute aortic diseases: not an obvious diagnosis"
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at 17:00 CET
Speaker: Christian Loewe, Vienna/AT
Moderator: Olivier Ghekiere, Liège/BE
Acute aortic diseases represent a rather rare but highly “malignant” condition. Without immediate and appropriate treatment, prognosis is dismal.
In this presentation, the image based diagnosis of acute aortic diseases will be discussed and state-of-the-art imaging techniques for CT angiography and MR imaging will be introduced. The most relevant image-derived biomarkers for treatment decision making and for follow up will be discussed as well. Treatment indications should be explained based on clinical cases in the view of newly established treatment guidelines with a special focus on the challenges with “complicated” aortic dissections and the inherent challenges for imaging.
1. To become familiar with the definition of acute aortic syndrome
2. To learn about the most important imaging derived biomarkers in patients suffering from acute aortic diseases
3. To become familiar with the optimized imaging strategy in acute aortic syndromes
4. To learn about the traditional definition of “complicated type-B dissections” and their practical limitations
Registration is open and free for all active ESCR members.
