Optimizing PCI (O-PCI) is a series of educational meetings dedicated to helping cardiologists optimize decision-making in interventional cardiac procedures using state-of-the-art intravascular imaging and physiology technologies. Our renowned international faculty is committed to help cardiologists master interpretation of invasive diagnostic devices and treat with precision, thus securing optimal outcomes for patients.
