Dear colleagues and friends,
It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to ECHO ASIA-Singapore 2022 which will be held from 28 to 30 October 2022 at the National Heart Centre, Singapore. This annual conference aims to update cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, trainees, allied health professionals, and other healthcare professionals in Asia and worldwide who share a common interest in the use of imaging for diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disorders.
The ECHO ASIA-Singapore 2022 Local Organizing and International Scientific Committees have spared no effort in assembling an eclectic program which should appeal to a broad audience. Topics run the gamut from cutting-edge innovations in echocardiography to basic cardiac functional assessment, from challenging valvular heart disease to ubiquitous medical conditions such as atrial fibrillation and heart failure. We have aimed to emphasize real-world, practically relevant scenarios where echocardiography plays a fundamental role in diagnosis and management.
We are privileged again to welcome an illustrious panel of international, regional and local experts in echocardiography who will share their unique insights through didactic lectures, debates, case-based interactive presentations, and workshops. We also welcome your active participation in ECHO ASIA-Singapore 2022 by submitting scientific abstracts for presentation at the poster sessions, and consideration for the Young Investigator’s Awards, as well as fascinating case studies for the Interesting Case Presentation Competition. Attractive prizes await winners of these competitions as well as winners of the daily lucky draw!
With the generous support of our industry partners, no effort has been spared in making ECHO ASIA-Singapore 2022 a rich educational experience. Don’t forget also to check out the vibrant city life, must-see world-renowned attractions and tantalizing gastronomic delights. We hope you will join us at the conference and look forward to seeing you at ECHO ASIA-Singapore!
