A global hybrid event focusing on optimising outcomes with state-of-the-art imaging and physiology techniques in interventional cardiology

Overview

iPCI is a live two-day event, held on the 13–14 April at the LantarenVenster theatre in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. It focuses on image guidance techniques in interventional cardiology. Intravascular imaging and physiology significantly improve PCI outcomes, attend to learn about best use, emerging technologies and more.

With an educational focus on state-of-the-art imaging and physiology research, iPCI will be led by a global faculty of over 35 physicians and engineers. Beyond the CME-accredited plenary programme, the event will provide rich opportunities for on-site delegates to benefit from practical learnings and the possibility to participate in workshops. The meeting will be co-organised by the OPCI team.

iPCI is a successor of Optics in Cardiology, which ran five exciting editions from 2011. For the first time, the dissemination of iPCI sessions will extend beyond the venue – a free-to-access live virtual broadcast will open the event to physicians globally. With each plenary session live streamed, a global audience will benefit from best-in-class CME-accredited education delivered by thought-leaders.

Led by Course Directors Dr Joost Daemen and Prof Dr Gijs van Soest (Thoraxcenter, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, NL) iPCI aims to optimise theoretical and practical education to maximise patient outcomes.

iPCI 2023 will be delivered in partnership with Radcliffe Cardiology, the knowledge community for cardiovascular professionals, and OPCI. Erasmus MC is the host organisation for this event.

Please note, for on-site attendees the fee will be as follows: regular €500, student €150 and industry €700. You will be contacted regarding this after you register if you choose on-site attendee.

About Radcliffe Cardiology

We are Radcliffe, a knowledge network for the cardiovascular community.

We’re here to bring cardiovascular knowledge, insight and innovation to life for clinicians around the world, using our communications and creative expertise, our platforms and connections across the community to help transform theory into practice faster and more effectively.

We bring medical knowledge to life

From great science writing and smart journal editing, the curation of evidence based and peer-reviewed content, to engaging new formats that cut through the noise, we believe that communication is at the heart of great healthcare.

Our work is underpinned by 3 core principles:

  • We build on the best science
  • We work hands-on with our community
  • We bring fresh thinking

Our promise is that we’ll equip you with the latest knowledge and skills you need, to do the best for your patients.
