Welcome Message

Welcome message From the President of the Asian Society of Cardiovascular Imaging (ASCI) 


Dear Friends and Colleagues,


On behalf of the 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 in the hybrid form at ALMAZ Center, Hanoi, Vietnam, from Thursday to Saturday on the 19th to 21st August 2021. Hanoi is the capital city as well as the second-largest city of Vietnam.

The ASCI was founded in 2006, and the Congress is held every year. In the past, it had been held twice in China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan, respectively, and once in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Thailand, respectively. In addition to the annual scientific meeting, the ASCI has been playing a significant role in the academy and education in Asia. The events include the 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, Cube Alumni, Practical Tutorial, LIVE-Tutorial, 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 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.

Due to the global pandemic, the international profession and healthcare providers are cordially welcome to join the virtual meeting. 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
