Vascular Days
Starting April 3

Webinars on Innovations in Vascular Disease Management and Treatment

Nowadays, partly due to the rising prevalence of obesity and diabetes, vascular diseases are increasingly common in many countries around the world. The most common vascular diseases include peripheral artery disease (PAD), carotid artery disease, and aortic aneurysm disease. Aortic aneurysm ranks globally among the top 10 causes of cardiovascular deaths and is a leading cause of mortality from large vessel diseases. 1 , 2

Canon Medical, together with our partners, strives to bring together experts in the field to share discoveries and insights from research and clinical practice.
The Canon Vascular Days consist of daily webinars (starting at 7 pm CEST for 1h) led by subject matter experts from across the globe. These sessions will provide a platform for professional education as we discuss state-of-the-art imaging and clinical management using illustrative clinical examples.
