ESCR EDUCATIONAL WEBINAR 07
"Well trained or too much: the hypertrophic phenotype"

Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 17:00 CEST

Speaker: Prof. Marco Francone, Rome/IT
Moderator: Prof. Christian Loewe, Vienna/AT

Description
Left ventricular hypertrophy encompasses a large and heterogeneous number of affections, characterized by the common phenotypic expression of pathological single or biventricular thickening.
Present webinar will aim to review tips and tricks for discriminating between various conditions, including the complex entity of the athletes’ heart, in which extensive training and adaptative mechanisms may sometime lead to the so-called “grey zone” of hypetrophy/dilatation which highly overlaps with mild forms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Role of modern CMR techniques in this specific setting will be also discussed, including T1 and T2 mapping and the importance of ECV quantification.

Learning Objectives
1) To review importance of correct phenotypic recognition in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy understanding respective functional and morphological changes characterizing different stages of diseases.
2) To understand complexity and heterogeneity of genotypes underlying apparently similar phenotypic forms of disease correlating pathological changes with CMR imaging findings.
3) To recognize common and less common signal intensity abnormalities and late enhancement patterns to provide etiological differentiation of the various forms of cardiomyopathies.
4) to discuss imaging-based preferable approach for discriminating into the “grey zone” of hypetrophy, consisting with an overlap of features between athletes and pathological patients.
5) To review prognostic implications of CMR-derived imaging biomarkers in dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathies.

About the speaker
Prof. Marco Francone is Professor of Radiology at Sapienza University of Rome.
He is an internationally known expert in cardiac imaging and speaker for most important international radiological and cardiological meetings including CIRSE, ESOR, RSNA, ECR, ESCR and the American college of cardiology. His prominent field of research is cardiovascular imaging with both CT and MR with specific focus on myocardial infarction and cardiomyopathies being author and coauthor of more than 100 indexed articles with an impact factor higher than 500.

Prof. Francone is also scientific chairman of the European Society of Cardiac Radiology (ESCR and was recently elected as President Italian College of Cardiac Radiology - Italian Society of Radiology. He is also actively involved in the activities of European Society of Radiology, having served as cardiac imaging subcommittee member for the European Congress of Radiology between 2017-2019 and was recently appointed as Scientific Subcommittee Chairperson for the 2020 meeting.
He is also member  of ESR Research Committee, since 2020. Refresher courser at RSNA for the years 2017-18 and member of the Educational Exhibit Awards committee and Radiographics panelist at RSNA 2015-2018.


Registration is open and free for all active ESCR members.
