Overview

Contemporary invasive imaging techniques improve the detection of coronary details and have great potential for improving clinical outcomes, due the lower risk of in-stent restenosis and thrombosis. This webinar is the first of a four-part series. It provides an overview of the current use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT), the relative advantages of each technique and real-world insight from imaging experts.

Meet the Experts Breakout Session:

Immediately after the end of the broadcast, we will invite you to attend a live breakout session, where we will continue the live Q&A with our faculty. You will have the chance to pose your questions to the session’s faculty in a more personal environment. Therefore, we encourage you to bring forward your questions, or cases you would like to discuss in a 1:1 environment with them.

The breakout session is open to everyone. You can register your interest to attend by selecting the box on the registration form when signing up to a broadcast. On the day of the broadcast, please follow the button on the page, below the video player to join the extended session. There are limited spaces available, so join early to avoid disappointment.
