Chairpersons: P. L'Allier, R. Waksman
Panellists: C. Di Mario, P. Ludman

Summary

Consult this session to understand the pathology of the vulnerable plaque, gain experience with the role of intra-coronary imaging to detect it, be updated on the latest treatment strategies.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the pathology of the vulnerable plaque
