EACVI 2023 unfolded as the first patient-focused and unified multi-modality meeting of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) on May 10-12 at the Fira Barcelona Conference Center in Spain.

‘We have created one congress to bring all imaging modalities together to improve the management of our patients,’ the organizer wrote in a communiqué prior to the event. ‘After EACVI 2023, delegates will have a better understanding of how information from different techniques can be combined to provide a more comprehensive picture.’

The new onsite meeting will become the flagship congress on cardiovascular imaging (CVI), according to the association, a branch of the European Society of Cardiology that regroups over 8,000 cardiologists, sonographers, nurses, basic scientists and allied professionals.

EACVI 2023 brought together beginners and experts of all CVI techniques under the auspicious theme: ‘Be at the heart of multi-modality imaging.’

Canon and Fujifilm were also present at EACVI 2023 with new solutions to improve cardiovascular imaging.

The programme featured a wealth of multimodality topics tackling ischemia, pulmonary hypertension and myocardial viability, as well as dedicated echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, computed tomography and nuclear cardiology topics. Particular importance was also given to new research and tools including artificial intelligence (AI).

The Keynote lecture on ‘The Role of Imaging as Cardiology is Changing’ was given by Professor Stephan Achenbach, Chairman of the Cardiology Department at Erlangen University Hospital, Germany.
