Why attend ?
Over the past 25 years Medis has been active in the R&D and commercialization of state-of-the-art analytical software packages for various applications. It has been our experience that dedicated two-day’s courses with hands-on training by the senior researchers and developers of these software packages are very helpful for new users, as well as for established users who need a refresher. With the development of the new Quantitative Flow Ratio (QFR) for the functional assessment of coronary narrowings from 3D QCA, Medis once again proves its high quality in quantification and its innovative nature. QFR is to be applied in the cath lab, before, during and/or after PCI. To stay well informed about the latest developments in quantitative cardiovascular imaging, and start the procedure towards QFR certification, we strongly recommend this training course.

Who should attend ?
Cardiologists, radiologists, fellows, technicians and physicists who currently are, or will be working with the Medis Suite XA and QAngio XA 3D with QFR analytical software packages and need to familiarize themselves with all the ins and outs of these systems and with the clinical applications.
