General information

ESCR strives to develop evidence-based documents on cardiovascular imaging topics in the broadest sense. The documents are published in peer reviewed journals via an open access to make them freely available to everybody. In the overview below all documents are listed. By clicking on the respective link on the left side, a new window will open which automatically takes you to the document.

The Guidelines Committee of the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology consists of a group of international experts on cardiovascular imaging and oversees the process from the initial idea to the final publication.
