11th Croatian Biennal Echocardiography Congress with International Participation
11. hrvatski dvogodišnji ehokardiografski kongres s međunarodnim sudjelovanjem
6. – 8.5.2021.
CroEcho2021 is a three day remote congress focused on content of greatest interest to cardiologists and future cardiologists, dedicated to diagnosis and clinical decision making in cardiology.
CroEcho2021, our traditional biannual echocardiographic conference, will provide a completely different experience this year. New limiting circumstanced due to the COVID-19
pandemic have compelled us to hold the conference remotely for the first time.
However, the application of digital technology and the CroEcho2021 conference network platform also provides some new advantages to our participants, including free and unfettered participation in discussions, addressing questions and comments to lecturers through direct and freer communication, pre-conference viewing of conference speeches and exhibits, and free communication between participants during the conference.
The conference program has been adjusted to the new circumstances and is reduced in scope, with no events taking place in parallel and addressing only selected topics from the echocardiography course, and chocardiography workshops being staged remotely. The conference focuses on carefully selected cardiologic topics addressed in plenary lectures in which echocardiography plays a central role, along with clinical scenarios that require goal-oriented choices and clinical interpretation based on multiple imaging methods in planning interventions and treatment.
The conference is organized by the Working Group on Echocardiography and Cardiac Imaging Modalities of the Croatian Cardiac Society, with the support of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI). We look forward to meeting each other once again, albeit this time via a computer interface.
