Groningen, July 2014

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present the preliminary programme for the
9th Netherlands Heart Days, NHD2015, from January 22 — 24,
2015 on Curaçao.
This years meeting is organized by the NHD, again together
with the Maastricht University Medical Center and in cooperation with the
NASKHO (Netherlands-Caribbean Foundation for Clinical Higher Education).

On the first two days mainly new radiological techniques and
insights into cardiovascular radiology will be addressed.
Amongst others, speakers from Brasil and Sweden will discuss
imaging and treatment of acute chest pain in their countries
and there will be sessions on pre- and post myocardial
infarction imaging and cardiomyopathy. On the last day,
gender topics in cardiac imaging and new radiological and
cardiac developments in the Caribbean and Colombia will be

From many other perspectives the organizers decided nine
years ago to start an annual course in Curaçao. It has proved its
worth in the last years as evidenced by both the returning
number of participants of the previous years as well as the
increment of new ones and speakers, both from Europe as well
as from the entire Caribbean area and South America.

Early fee registration is open until December 1, 2014.
Of course registration is also possible thereafter, until January
19, 2015

We hope to welcome you in Curaçao in January 2015!

Prof. Dr. M. Oudkerk
Prof. Dr. J.E. Wildberger
