13th NETHERLANDS HEART DAYS 2019

January 17 - 19, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to present the program for the 13th Netherlands Heart Days (NHD) from January 17 – 19, 2019 in Curaçao.

The annual NHD has proved its value as high level annual meeting in cardiovascular radiology as evidenced by both the returning number of regular participants as well as the increment of new ones from Europe, the entire Caribbean area, North and South America, and the last years also Asia.

The meeting is organized by the NHD together with the section Cardiovascular Radiology of the Radiological Society of The Netherlands, in close cooperation with the NASKHO (Netherlands – Caribbean Foundation for Clinical Higher Education).

This years' program covers topics on coronary plaque imaging, myocardial perfusion quantification, machine learning in cardiovascular imaging, and many more. On the last day, the traditional 'local' session will cover new developments in radiology and cardiology in these regions with speakers from the Caribbean and South America.

Young researchers again will have the opportunity to submit abstracts for the Poster Award Session. The abstracts, with only cardiovascular topics, will be rated by a jury and the 5 highest rated abstracts will be presented in a plenary oral session. The best presentation will be awarded with a Poster Award. The remaining accepted posters can be viewed on site.

Early fee registration is open until December 1, 2018.

We hope to welcome you in Curaçao in January!

Prof. T. Leiner
Prof. H.J. Lamb
