Frontiers in Intraoperative Cardiac Tissue Identification
Date: Friday, May 13, 2022, 7:00 AM - 5:30 PM
A first of its kind, virtual conference, presented by experts in the fields of pediatric heart surgery, electrophysiology, cardiac anatomy, and imaging technologies. The course will focus on emerging technologies for real-time tissue identification in the human heart, their clinical translation for applications in pediatric cardiac surgery, and evaluation in clinical studies.
The conference will provide an overview of intraoperative instrumentation and technologies enabling research on congenital heart disease. In addition, the conference will review and discuss the historical and contemporary approaches for intraoperative discrimination of cardiac tissues during these operations.
