Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of our Local Organizing Committee, it is a great honor and pleasure to invite you to the upcoming EPimage Atrial Fibrillation Ablation Training Course 2016, taking place in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Lodz, Poland, on November 25-26, 2016.

The EPimage will be the medical training platform which brings together EP specialists from Poland and Europe. The EPimage will allow for a meeting of medical professionals with a wide-ranging expertise in the field of modern methods of diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. The local and international experts are going to present techniques and technologies in invasive electrophysiology, especially atrial fibrillation ablation procedures, conducted through live transmissions directly from the EP Laboratory of Department of Interventional Cardiology and Cardiac Arrhythmias which will also foster a broader exchange of knowledge and expertise. In the present edition we plan to present the strategy and management related with atrial fibrillation ablation used in persistent form of the arrhythmia. Expected Participants will be clinical cardiac electrophysiologists and trainees in electrophysiology as well as other physicians interested in the issue of cardiac arrhythmias.

Kind regards,
