Call for Abstracts & Cases: BIC

Best Intra-coronary imaging Competition(BIC)
Case Submission Guidelines

The selected cases have been announced!

Thanks to major interests in the BIC, a large number of cases were submitted. The selected cases are interesting cases that made full use of imaging modalities. Please access the following webpage and take a look at the selected cases’ slides. (Member registration is required.)

We are pleased to announce that the "Best Intra-coronary imaging Competition (BIC)" will be held at CCT2017.

Intra-coronary imaging not only provides guidance for PCI, but also plays an important role for clarifying the pathophysiology of ischemic heart disease.
In BIC, physicians are invited to submit IVUS, OCT and Endoscopic, etc., cases that proved to be clinically useful, unique, etc. that would be determined as "evidential images".

Outstanding 10 cases will be presented during CCT2017 and will be posted on the CCT2017 website. The best presenter among these will be invited to CCT2018 as a faculty member. I look forward to receiving your submissions and seeing you all at CCT2017.
