Cardiovascular disease is still the most common cause of death in the world. In this regard, cardiac CT has been proposed as an attractive non-invasive imaging which can accurately evaluate not only luminal stenosis but also the atherosclerotic plaque. With the development of technical aspects of CT technique, clinical practice and research are increasingly shifting toward defining the clinical implication of plaque morphology, myocardial perfusion, and patient outcomes. Currently, latest techniques such as dual-or multi-energy CT and FFR-CT are being introduced in clinical fields, thus, various applications in cardiovascular diseases are expected.

Accordingly, CIVICS was founded to meet the need for academic education and training, research exchanges, and getting the up-to-date information, among radiologists, clinicians, and technicians all over Asia in relation to CT cardiovascular imaging. The CIVICS will be held the 3rd academic scientific meeting in Seoul, Korea on May 12th (Sat) and 13th (Sun) of this year. In this meeting, Dr. U. Joseph Schoepf (Department of Radiology, Medical University of South Carolina), one of the excellent radiologists who have outstanding achievements of cardiovascular imaging, and professor Tae-Hwan Lim (Department of Radiology, Asan Medical Center), a pioneer of Korean cardiovascular imaging, have been invited as a plenary lecturers . In addition, many experts in cardiovascular CT imaging in Asia have also decided to participate in this meeting.
In particular, we have established a joint session with cardiac MR, which is known as one of the representative modality of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging at this meeting. In the last session, we will also introduce the cutting-edge technologies in cardiac CT and MR fields. Hopefully, anyone who are interested in cardiovascular imaging, we would like them to participate in this meeting regardless of whether they are a student, doctor or technician. I believe this scientific meeting programs will be useful for both the beginners and already active users in cardiovascular imaging. Through this meeting, therefore, I hope all participants will gain the latest knowledge of cardiovascular imaging and gain the chance to meet a lot of distinguished speakers and will exchange of their own experiences among them.
