The programme of this year's meeting will feature a new addition; a Clinical Evaluation Course comprising eight thematic sessions. Each of these session will include a multidisciplinary faculty examining the diagnostic evaluation of the patient, interventional and non-interventional treatment options, state-of-the-art technology with regards to advanced image guidance and devices, as well as patient follow-up.
The endovascular focus will again make up more than 50% of the programme, including three distinct topic categories: arterial, venous and aortic interventions, the latter covered in the Interdisciplinary Endovascular Aortic Symposium (IDEAS), a popular parallel multidisciplinary programme which will run from Sunday to Tuesday for the fourth year and will include the IDEAS Industry Training Village. There will also be ample attention given to the game-changing research in and importance of embolotherapies, including a Hot Topic Symposium on the clinical uses of embolisation in the trauma setting. The other Hot Topic Symposium will cover the use of transradial access and its broad application in minimally invasive interventions.
