07 May 18. Cardiovascular Imaging success
Edinburgh research featured in the first 4 places of the BSCI/BSCCT Young Investigator Award.

Last week, the British Cardiovascular Imaging #BCVI18 meeting took place in Edinburgh.
It was the first time that the British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging/British Society of Cardiovascular CT (BSCI/BSCCT), British Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (BSCMR) & British Nuclear Cardiac Society (BNCS) had joined together for a combined annual meeting.
The meeting was a sell-out and the programme of excellent speakers proved to make the event a very successful few days.
