Pre-Planning with Cardiac CT imaging for Congenital Heart Diseases Procedures
Dr. Yuri Blaauw
About this talk
Learn how Cardiac CT Imaging can help enhance your EP practice. Dr. Yuri Blaauw an electrophysiologist from UMCG (University Hospital Medical Center Groningen) in the Netherlands will share his experience integrating CT imaging into his EP workflow to pre-plan procedures in patients with Congenital Heart Disease. Multiple case presentations will also highlight how the ADAS 3D platform complements his intra-procedure practice. The audience will be able to interact by asking questions during the case-based presentations.
oRecognize the key steps to interpret and analyze Cardiac CT imaging into an EP practice
oIdentify the benefits of using Cardiac CT imaging for the EP lab in Congenital Heart Disease procedures
oDiscuss how pre-procedure CT imaging complements current intraprocedural electro-anatomical mapping in the EP lab
