Description


This program features a special curriculum on Atherosclerosis, Inflammation, Thrombosis, and Risk Factors with lectures by Dr. Peter Libby and Dr. Paul Ridker, and a special Valvular Heart Disease Symposium led by Dr. Patrick O'Gara. A presentation of the Kenneth L. Baughman, MD Memorial Lecture is given by Dr. Paul D. Thompson on "The Role of Exercise in Modern Cardiology." In addition to over 40 outstanding lectures, many more break-out sessions have been added on topics such as nuclear cardiology, CT coronary angiography, and echocardiography.

The activity combines the review of established principles with state-of-the-art changes and innovative concepts in the rapidly advancing field of cardiovascular medicine
