On June 7-8, 2019 the European Society of Cardiology organized annual summer summit for members of the European Association for Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), which was held at the European Heart House in Sophia Antipolis, France.
The summit was attended by more than 40 specialists in cardiovascular diseases from 34 countries of Europe, the Caucasus, the Middle East and North Africa.
The most important issues of the summit were the involvement of young specialists in EACVI and ESC educational programs, active propaganda of modern cardiology achievements in the participating countries, the use of evidence from research and recommendations of the European Society of Cardiologists in daily practice, informing doctors and medical students about distance learning courses (webinars) on problems of diagnosing circulatory system diseases. The former President of EACVI (2016-2018) Bogdan Popescu and Chairman of the committee of young professionals in the visualization (HIT) Matteo Cameli also reported on the ways of making and submission of application for educational and research grants.
Taking into account the active position of the ESC and EACVI in relation to the Russian-speaking audience, the educational platform of the European Society of Cardiology now includes Russian-language content developed with the active participation of the associate professor of the Department of General Medical Practice, BSMU, Ph.D., associate professor N.N.Moroz-Vodolazhskaya, who also participated in the summit.
By the decision of EACVI and ESC, access to all clinical cases (in English and Russian) included in the EVINCI multicenter European study database is free in case of free personal registration on the ESC website (the language of the website is English).
Russian-language clinical cases are available without any registration on the website of the partner organization of Belarusian State Medical University - Fondazione Toscana Gabriele Monasterio, Italy (follow the “Russian language” sign on a red background) or on the page http://educad.ftgm.it/index.php/learning-item-menu activate link: A set of 10 clinical cases in Russian.
