Cardiovascular Imaging

The purpose of this course is to develop and provide specialized scientific and professional skills in Cardiovascular Imaging (CVI), which is a cross-cutting area of Cardiovascular Medicine, being essential for the establishment of diagnosis, risk stratification and clinical decision. The explosive technological evolution seen especially in the last decade has led to the need for its knowledge by clinicians/imaging specialists and stimulated interest in clinical, basic and translational research.

The teaching of CVI will cover its fundamentals, methodologies and clinical practice, while also promoting research of excellence in the area. Synergies will be promoted with other ULisboa Organic Units integrating various knowledge.

The course takes place in person, with the possibility of online transmission.
In addition to certification by the University of Lisbon, international certification will be provided.
