Webinar

Required level of previous knowledge and experience of participants: intermediate to advanced

Webinar objectives:

  • To list the methods of intravascular imaging used in clinical medicine
  • To describe the physical basis of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • To explain the distinction between extravascular (EVUS) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS)
  • To describe, list and explain the difference between IVUS and OCT devices and catheters
  • To define the role of IVUS and OCT in strategy and decision making how to treat changes in the aorta and peripheral arteries
  • To list indications where IVUS and OCT methods are used and where they have additional potential
  • To state the added value of intravascular imaging in assessing the results of endovascular treatment

Who is the webinar for:

  • Specialists in interventional radiology, specialists in radiology, cardiology and vascular surgery who want to learn and / or further deepen their knowledge of the role of intravascular imaging of the aorta and peripheral arteries in the diagnostics and treatment by endovascular approach.
