We invite you to join us for the 7th Advanced International Masterclass (AIM) on Transradial Approach and its 3rd Physiology & Coronary Intervention (PCI) Workshop, to be held November 29 - December 1, 2018 in Sarasota (Florida, USA). 

Transradial Approach

The objective of AimRADIAL is to provide an in-depth general overview of current data and evidence-based medicine regarding all aspects of transradial techniques for coronary and vascular diagnostic angiography and percutaneous interventions.

Invasive Physiology Assessment

AimRADIAL also includes a one-day comprehensive workshop covering all aspects of invasive physiology assessment and its use in the process of disease assessment and treatment / revascularization strategy selection for patients with coronary artery disease: measurement of fractional flow reserve (FFR) from the basic principles and set-up in the cathlab, to the differences between FFR and instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR), and coronary flow reserve (CFR), a comprehensive review of the clinical study data so far, and a look at future modalities.


Sessions are intended for interventional and general cardiologists, interventional radiologists, physicians, residents, fellows-in-training and other healthcare professionals (nurses, technologists, etc) at all experience levels.

Continuing Medical Education Credit Statement

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Florida AHEC Network and Interventional Cardiology and Transradial Approach.
