Parallel programme

  • Echocardiography workshop „4D and deformation imaging for heart failure
    (with reservation, limited places, only for congress delegates)
  • Friday, 14:00 – 14:50, and Saturday, 08:40 – 09:30
  • Round Table „Quality care indicators“ 11:00 – 12:30 (by invitations)

We invite you to attend Echocardiography class, with the possibility to learn the pecularities of innovative deformation imaging relevant for HF.
