How I Do It –Complex Imaging in a Busy Environment

In cardiology clinical practice, the role of imaging is continuously expanding. However, not only the number of imaging studies increases but also their complexity. Similarly, physicians will have more and more complex patients to care for. In this session, we'll discuss how to streamline workflows to face the increasing workload in times with restricted resources.

Moderator & Speaker: Dr. Kanae Mukai, MD, FACC, ABIHM, FSCMR
Cardiologist, Medical Director, Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Imaging
Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System and Ryan Ranch Center for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging
Monterey, California, USA

Kanae Mukai, MD, FACC, ABIHM, FSCMR is the Medical Director of Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Imaging at Ryan Ranch Center for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging and Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System. She obtained her BS in chemical engineering from MIT and has previously worked in the semiconductor industry. She obtained her MD at Chicago Medical School and completed internal medicine residency at Mayo Clinic, fellowships in general and integrative cardiology at Scripps Clinic, and imaging subspecialty fellowships at Duke Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Center and UCSF. She holds Level III certification and is a boarded Diplomate in MRI, CT, nuclear imaging, and echocardiography.

Presentation Title: Cardiac MRI in a Busy Clinical Practice
Cardiac MRI is regarded as a gold standard for myocardial tissue characterization, evaluation of cardiovascular anatomy, and quantification of systolic function. It also plays an instrumental role in the assessment of pericardial, valvular, and vascular pathologies. Through a series of case-based examples, this presentation will review best practices as well as strategies employed at a community based tertiary imaging center for the implementation of cardiac MRI in a clinical setting.

Speaker: Dr. Jesse Habets, MD, PhD, EBCR
Cardiovascular Radiologist
Nijmegen, the Netherlands

Dr. Jesse Habets is Radiologist at the Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen in the Netherlands and an expert in the field of cardiovascular CT and MR imaging. His primary research focuses on state-of-the art cardiac CT imaging with last years special attention to acute coronary syndrome imaging by state-of-the-art CT imaging.

Presentation Title: Cardiac CT in Acute Coronary Syndromes
For patients presenting to the hospital with an acute coronary syndrome, a rapid diagnosis can save hearts. Could cardiac CT play a role in diagnosis and treatment decisions in acute coronary syndrome?
This talk will cover the recent and future developments of cardiac CT imaging in acute coronary syndrome, illustrated by clinical cases. Besides CTCA, the potential role of dynamic CT perfusion will be discussed.

Speaker: Prof. Marco Francone, MD, PhD,MsC
Director of Cardiovascular Imaging Department and Diagnostic Imaging Department
Istituto Clinica Humanitas Rozzano
Milan, Italy

Invited since years to lecture at ESOR, SCMR, ESCR, CIRSE, RSNA, and ECR. At RSNA he lectured at refresher courses for the last three consecutive years. His research is dedicated to cardiovascular imaging with CT and MR with specific focus on coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction and cardiomyopathies with more than 100 indexed papers. He chairs the scientific committee of the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology and serve the board of Trustee of the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance and acted as Past President Italian College of Cardiac Radiology. Active in national and international imaging societies as Editorial Board of European Radiology, European Journal of Radiology, International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging, and Radiologia Medica.

Presentation Title: Easy Post-Processing for CT Plaque Analysis
Plaque Analysis in terms of stenosis and tissue composition can be very challenging and time consuming. An easy and fast post processing with cutting-edge Cardiac Analysis tool is mandatory for time saving and accuracy in the diagnosis. A completely fast and semi-automatic application which provides in few seconds a perfect visualization of all main coronary arteries and their side branches, a complete set of clinical views, multiple methos for a quantitative analysis of the plaques, is an outstanding support at reporting with a high level of accuracy and avoiding missed findings.

Speaker: Dr. Arthur Darmon, MD
Interventional Cardiologist and Structural Heart Disease
The Bichat–Claude Bernard Hospital
Paris, France

Dr. Arthur Darmon joined the Cardiology Department of Bichat Hospital, in Paris in November 2019, after one year of fellowship in Interventional and Structural Cardiology in Massy, France. He is in charge of the Intensive Care Unit and part of the Coronary and Structural Heart Program. He obtained in M.D degree in the field of antithrombotic management of patients with coronary artery disease, especially oral anticoagulants. His area of expertise encompasses complex coronary percutaneous intervention, chronic total occlusion of coronary arteries, transcatheter aortic valve implantation and left atrial appendage occlusion. He is currently following PhD in the prediction of cardiovascular events using machine learning algorithms.

Presentation Title: Complex Intervention
During the last few years, with the development of intra coronary imaging, physiological assessment of coronary arteries, and improvement of devices and techniques, physicians are now able to treat more and more complex patients without compromising outcomes. Through a case-based examples, this session will focus on complex and high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention, and how we can take advantage of all theses technique to simplify and optimize our procedure in order to offer our patients maximum safety and improve long-term outcomes.
