During this session participants will be able to train in the appropriate use of multimodal imaging technology for diagnosis of ischemic heart disease using the eduCAD tool. Participants will choose their diagnostic pathway on the basis of clinical evidence and appropriateness criteria for the use of non-invasive/invasive imaging tests. They will be able to reach their clinical conclusion based on their choice of the available anatomy-functional imaging data and take their decision for an appropriate therapy. During the analysis of the firsts two clinical cases the audience will be guided by experts in non-invasive imaging.
