Medanta Echo n Cardiology
As April 2016 looms on the horizon, we look forward to welcome you yet again for the 5th season of “Medanta Echo n Cardiology: Today and tomorrow”. This unique meeting of minds has been appreciated in the past as the melting point of the best of imaging and clinical Cardiology in a serene setting where learning, exchange of ideas and glimpses of the future blend with the state-of-the-art. I invite you to be a part of this journey yet again. As this meeting is theme based, this year’s theme is “Made in India” with focus on pathologies and their solutions that are unique to our populations. Discussions and interaction will predominantly focus on cardiovascular disease states that pose threat to the nation and have the potential to snatch or maim men and women in their prime. Hence the theme, “Made in India”.
