This is a 1.5 day (10.25 CME hours) program focused on artificial intelligence (AI) in Cardiology targeting clinicians, clinical investigators, computer scientists, data scientists and engineers interested in current and potential applications of AI in cardiovascular medicine.

The program has a hybrid format including keynote speakers, regular lectures, and brief presentations of ongoing or successful AI projects in Cardiology, as well as breakout sessions and poster sessions. The didactic and keynote presentations will cover topics of interest related to AI in Cardiology including a brief history of AI, early applications of AI in general and specific to healthcare, and a review of pioneering applications of AI in Cardiology. We will also provide a general overview of the general steps to carryout research involving AI, a summary of key concepts to better understand the principles of AI in medicine, and to clarify concepts that are commonly misunderstood related to AI.

In this program we will also provide some attendees a forum to present their current projects with a special format with limited slides and time for questions. Some lectures, particularly the breakout sessions, will be focused on specific areas of AI in medicine such as prediction tools, screening tools, natural language processing in healthcare and medical informatics, imaging processing, and clinical decision making. There will also be talks providing attendees general tools on how to publish manuscripts on AI and critical steps to pursue intellectual property rights.

This symposium is a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art echocardiography, cardiac CT, and MRI for a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders.  We will emphasize new technologies and how to use imaging information for the care of your patients.  Integration of Echo, CT, and MRI and their incremental value in clinical cardiology will be highlighted.  An additional focus will be on the role of 2-D and 3-D echocardiography in guiding interventional therapies.

Unique to this course is live scanning of patients with various CV disorders.  This session will emphasize the importance of comprehensive echocardiographic acquisition and management decision based on echocardiographic data. 

Course Highlights:

  • Imaging in echo, cardiac CT and MRI
  • Strain imaging
  • Congenital heart disease
  • 3-D TEE
  • Live scanning sessions
  • Hands-on scanning opportunity

There will be ample time each afternoon for the participant to enjoy a multitude of summertime activities in this picturesque and relaxing environment.

In its 13th year, CICT continues to provide a unique platform for case-based learning and lively debate of the most controversial topics in interventional cardiology by world-class experts. CICT 2019 conference content is designed with the aim to move away from a traditional conference format and to focus on interactive discussions fostering direct exchange between attendees, faculty and industry through case presentations and open debate format. The conference will address complex cardiovascular interventional topics that still present a challenge to the clinician with respect to choosing the appropriate therapy (surgery vs. catheter-based therapy) and with respect to using optimal technique to ensure the safety and efficacy of the procedure.

Program Highlights

Coronary Track

  • Left main coronary stenting vs. bypass surgery: Where are we in 2019? How we decide?
  • Recanalization of CTOs: Practice evolution. Reconciling theory and evidence
  • The resurgence of short-term DAPT: Back to the future
  • Treatment of severely calcified lesions: rotational, orbital, lithotripsy
  • Intracoronary Imaging & Physiology: What’s in and what’s out!

Structural Heart Disease Track

  • Aortic valve replacement in low risk patients: Experts debate the paradigm shift!
  • TAVR in complex patient subsets: Case-Based Learning
  • Trans Catheter Mitral Valve Repair in Functional Mitral Regurgitation: The New Gold Standard!
  • The Role of Advanced 3D Imaging in SHD guidance
  • And more…!

Peripheral Arterial Disease Track

  • Paclitaxel-Based Interventional Devices for PAD: To Be or Not to BE!
  • Trans Catheter Management of Sub Massive Pulmonary Embolism: Time to get involved!
  • Critical Limb Ischemia: Interventional Cardiology, Vascular Surgery, and Interventional Radiology

The 35th Annual Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease – Special Emphasis on Adult Congenital Heart Disease Including Uses of Multimodality Imaging Symposium will highlight the use of echocardiography and other cardiac imaging techniques to recognize, understand, and manage patients with congenital heart disease using a case based format. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of imaging techniques in the care of the adult with CHD. This four-day symposium is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy, clinical aspects, imaging, and management of patients with congenital heart disease. The symposium will include case discussions, didactic seminars, anatomic and imaging correlations, discussion of multimodal imaging and scanning seminars to illustrate the impact of cardiac imaging on treatment, diagnosis, and management of patients with congenital heart disease.

Cases in Echocardiography, Cardiac CT, and MRI

This advanced course is designed to provide the clinician and sonographer with an update on transthoracic, stress, and transesophageal echocardiography as well as cardiac CT and MRI. It is not a "how-to" course, but instead will concentrate on the application of these modalities to clinical decision making.

The program consists primarily of clinical cases which illustrate the problems cardiovascular specialists commonly encounter. Multiple choice questions addressing the clinical utility and limitations of echocardiography follow each case. Utilization of cardiac CT and MRI is also incorporated into the cases. In addition, faculty presents “rapid fire” and “unknown” cases.

Special breakout sessions are devoted to the interpretation of Doppler hemodynamics, diastolic function, stress echocardiography, congenital heart disease, interventional, heart failure, CT/MRI, and perioperative echocardiography.

Attendees have the opportunity to share an interesting case with the faculty and audience. If you would like to share an interesting case, please make this available as an MPEG, AVI, or WMV file. The images should be deidentified. Please provide this case to the registration desk at check-in with a small written history of the patient.

This course is designed to encourage maximum audience participation and interaction with the faculty.

The program seeks to address competence in using multiple echocardiographic techniques in assessment of cardiac structure and function in adult acquired or congenital heart disease. This will include concise, limited didactic lectures with major emphasis on a series of illustrative cases which will include audience response and discussion presented by echocardiography specialists which would lead to enhanced patient management. Workshops will be held to demonstrate the techniques for acquiring the echocardiographic data, especially with respect to new contemporary techniques such as strain imaging.
