Welcome Message


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of ASCI, it is my great honor and privilege to welcome you to the 14th Asian Congress of Cardiovascular Imaging (ASCI 2021) which will be held at the Ariyana Convention Center, Danang city, Vietnam, from Thursday August 19th, to Saturday 21st, 2021.

The ASCI was founded in 2006, and the Congress is held every year. Unfortunately, the ASCI 2020 had to be postponed to 2021 due to the global pandemic. In the past, the Congress had been held twice in China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan, and once in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Thailand, respectively. In addition to the annual scientific meeting, the ASCI has been playing an important role in the academy and education in Asia. The events include publication of an official journal the CVIA, the ASCI Cube program in fostering young and intelligent ASCI members, the ASCI Joint Symposium to support the academic activities of the Asian Oceanian national societies, and the ASCI Speaker Bureau to train the ASCI members to become distinguished speakers for academic meetings.

The theme of ASCI 2021 is “Beyond the Future of Cardiovascular Imaging: Opportunities and Challenges”. Inspiring refresher courses and updated scientific programs, including the implication of AI in cardiovascular imaging that will be arranged. AI has the potential of transforming cardiovascular imaging in the future. It will help radiologists, cardiologists, and healthcare providers to decrease diagnostic errors, facilitate collaborations among physicians for the sake of precision imaging, and preventive patient care. It is ASCI’s privilege to have a collaboration and exchange program with sister societies, including the EACVI, ESCR, NASCI, SCCT and SCMR. Outstanding speakers from those sister societies will be invited to strengthen the scientific program.

Da Nang is the commercial and educational centre of Central Vietnam, as well as the largest city in the region. Besides its easy access, shopping highlights, and historical sights, it has the proximity to several well-known beaches. In addition to learning and meeting old and new friends at the Congress, Da Nang is a wonderful city for relaxing and sightseeing, particularly after the global pandemic. You will certainly enjoy your stay at the comfortable venue, the Ariyana Convention Center which has 20 meeting rooms, meeting space of 6,641 sq. m, and 1,000 guest rooms.

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to the congress president Prof. Hoang Minh Loi, and the LOC members of ASCI 2021, for organizing this extraordinary congress. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all participants, speakers, moderators, officers and EC Members of ASCI, and the industrial sponsors for promoting the advance of cardiovascular imaging and the forthcoming success of the ASCI 2021.

Yours sincerely
