Intravascular Imaging Conference

Posted March 11, 2019

The fifth annual Intravascular Imaging and Coronary Physiology Workshop 2019 conference took place March 8th  and 9th at the Conrad New York. It was the biggest intravascular imaging conference to date, attracting close to 400 attendees as well as world-renowned faculty from around the globe.  Under the direction of Dr. Richard Shlofmitz, Chairman of Cardiology at St. Francis, attendees learned about state-of-the-art intracoronary image interpretation using optic coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound, best practice for coronary physiology, the algorithm of precision PCI, and newer techniques and emerging research evidence in the field of coronary imaging and physiology. The highlight was two Live Cases telecast from the Cath Lab at St. Francis Hospital, where attendees could witness coronary interventions and ask questions of the physicians performing.
