SCAI scientific sessions attract world-renowned invasive/interventional cardiologists

More than 200 studies, topical lectures, and case reviews on the latest in cardiovascular care will be presented in Chicago, May 1013, 2006, when the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) convenes its 29th Annual Scientific Sessions. Following receipt of a record-breaking number of abstract submissions, SCAI plans to welcome more than one-thousand invasive/interventional cardiologists, catheterization laboratory nurses, and technicians for presentations by a faculty of world-renowned investigators. The meeting will feature state-of-the-art lectures, seminars, taped-case demonstrations, and workshops on the newest developments in the care of heart patients.

"The signature of SCAI's Scientific Sessions is that the best current information is presented in an objective, well-reviewed format that's readily digestible," says Dr. Ted Feldman, a past president of the Society and chair of the 2006 Scientific Sessions Program Committee. He is a professor of medicine at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago and director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory at Evanston Hospital in Evanston, IL.

"Among many topics examined will be several rapidly developing areas in interventional cardiology, such as percutaneous valve therapy, carotid artery stenting, new techniques for vascular closure, and breakthroughs in imaging technology," adds Dr. Feldman.

The SCAI Scientific Sessions will also feature

  • The acclaimed Judkins Cardiac Imaging Symposium, featuring a full day of presentations focused on the latest in imaging technology, including cardiac computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, flat-panel imaging, electron-beam computed tomography (EBCT), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), and radiation safety (Wed., May 10, chaired by SCAI Past President Dr. Warren K. Laskey, of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque);
  • SCAI's brand-new, full-day Hemodynamics Symposium, w
