DeBakey CV Congress

This inaugural program teaches cardiovascular imaging and interventional techniques in an intensive hands-on setting. Participants practice techniques including 3D planning using
CT/MR image datasets, intraoperative image fusion and 3D image acquisition for interventional guidance. By the end of the program, participants should be able to apply these imaging and image guidance techniques to specific interventional/surgical procedures in order to improve their clinical practice. The course is designed for cardiovascular interventionalists interested in advanced imaging techniques.
