ESC 2014, Barcelona


 

 

 

This years ESC Congress was held in Barcelona, Spain.
Over 30 000 cardiology professionals were present in the biggest yearly event within the field of cardiology.

European Society of Cardiology aims to reduce the burden of cardiovascular diseases in Europe. The ESC provides an array of scientific and educational activities, such as the production and continuous updating of Clinical Practice Guidelines, the organisation of educational courses and initiatives, pan-European surveys on specific disease areas.

Center Director Professor Thor Edvardsen was one of the invited speakers.
His topic was Chest pain in the emergency room

Jørg Saberniak, MD, presenting his poster at ESC on Monday 1st September.

Title of poster; Ventricular arrhythmias in subjects with ARVC are associated with increased cardiac volumes but not with ejection fraction by cardiac magnetic resonance imag.

Trine Håland, MD, and Dr. Thor Edvardsen in front of Trine's poster.

Title of poster:Assessment of regional cardiac function might improve discrimination between left ventricular non-compaction and hypertrophic cardiomyopathies
