Imaging for individuals with cardiovascular disease has continued to advance and grow in complexity. The field of cardiovascular imaging with cardiac CT angiography, cardiac MR, nuclear cardiology/PET and echocardiography has evolved into giving health care providers less invasive testing options to diagnose patients with cardiovascular disease. Multi-modality educational opportunities are limited in this rapidly changing field due to the small numbers of trained cardiac imaging technologists and support staff.
Educational content will focus on ordering the correct imaging for each patient especially in the areas of structural heart disease, heart failure, coronary flow and more. Participants will learn from industry-leading cardiovascular imaging physicians, clinicians and technologists who will present the most current principles, techniques, risks and limitations of different cardiovascular imaging modalities.Location: This is a virtual event facilitated through Zoom webinar

In partnership with Pie Medical Imaging®, we are offering our fifth interactive, hands-on physician-led training workshop focused on increasing the competence in CT planning for transcatheter mitral valve interventions. These include valve-in-valve transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), Valve in Ring and valve in mitral annular calcification planning. In addition to state-of-the-art lectures, participants will learn interactively, how to perform all the necessary steps in the planning and follow-up for these procedures.
An attendee capacity limit of 50 will allow for personalized instruction and ample time for questions and instructor guidance.Location: Online via Zoom

The aging population, increase in cardiometabolic risk, and suboptimal control of risk factors could exacerbate cardiovascular disease.
This conference will educate physicians, advanced care providers and support staff on current guidelines and opinion on the identification and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
This update will review lipid pharmacology, the current guidelines in hypertension management, the role of aspirin in cardiovascular prevention and managing cardiovascular disease at different stages in a woman’s life cycle.Location:
Although heart valve disease affects as many as 11 million Americans, many people have never heard of it. Heart valve disease is estimated to affect 1 in 10 people ages 75+, and age is the greatest risk factor. Unfortunately, symptoms are often dismissed as a “normal” part of aging. It’s crucial that you recognize specific risks and symptoms.Location:
MHIF invites you to join a community of SCAD survivors during this unique webinar series! You’ll hear from patients and physicians as we share experiences and perspective, including managing stress and overall wellness.
Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is an important example of a condition that MHIF is committed to understanding more about through research in an effort to advance the care and treatment strategies for all individuals with SCAD.Location: Online via Zoom
