Case based session during which each presenter of selected clinical cases will have 10 min to present his/her most meaningful case which shows the added value of 3D echo to solve challenging clinical questions or assess complications of procedures. The most voted cases from the attendance will get a prize:

  1. The most voted case: Textbook of three-dimensional echocardiography, 2nd edition + Invitation as faculty member at 3D Echo 360° 2021
  2. The second most voted case: Textbook of three-dimensional echocardiography, 2nd edition
  3. The third most voted case: The EACVI textbook of echocardiography


High-quality abstracts focusing either on research or clinical case presentation will be selected for poster presentation during the 3D Echo 360° Workshop.
All submitted abstracts should involve the use of 3D echocardiography. Clinical, validation and experimental works will be considered for selection.
We recommend you structure your abstract as it follows:

  • Topic
  • Title
  • Authors
  • Institution
  • Text:
    • Background/Introduction
    • Purpose
    • Methods
    • Results
    • Conclusion(s)



Select a topic among those listed below:

  • Aortic valve
  • Atrial size and function
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Congenital heart diseaseson
  • Fusion imaging
  • Left atrial appendage
  • Left ventricular size and function
  • Miscellaneous
  • MitraClip
  • Mitral valve
  • Right ventricular size and function
  • Tricuspid valve
  • TAVI


Maximum 200 characters typed in upper-case letters. Do not include authors, institutions, city names, trademarks and abbreviations in the title.

Abstract authors and institutions

Your abstract must list at least 1 author registered to attend the workshop in order to be submitted.

Authors list

The Presenter must be part of the authors list included in the submitted abstract and must be able to explain his/her role in the research during poster presentation. You may enter as many authors as you like in the authors list including the Presenter. The submitter certifies that he has permission from all persons he enters as co-authors to be listed in this abstract and that they are aware that their names will appear in all publications. If none of the authors are able to present the abstract during the Workshop, the abstract should be withdrawn.


You will be requested to list the Institutions of the Presenter and the other authors of the abstract under the Authors list.

Abstract text

All abstracts must be submitted (and will be presented) in English using UK English spelling with accurate grammar and spelling suitable for publication.
Abstract submitted on animal studies: Study must follow the "Principles of laboratory animal care" (NIH Publication no. 85-23 revised 1985) and according to the national law if applicable.

Clinical cases

Clinical cases illustrated by high quality images, showing new applications and/or additional clinical benefits of 3D echo and/or or pathophysiological insights obtained using 3D echo will be considered for acceptance. Use of Figures and Tables is recommended for a more effective presentation of the findings. Maximum abstract size is 35 lines of 75 characters (or 2625 characters including spaces).


If the study to be presented is known through an acronym, please indicate the name of the study (e.g. "EMIT") in the appropriate field, as well as the full name of the acronym (e.g. "European Mizaverol Trial"). Funding Acknowledgements: All sources of financial support (including governmental grants) for this research should be listed under this heading. All grant funding agency abbreviations should be spelled out. This information will be published.


Important! The abstract submission should be considered completed only after receiving the email confirmation of successful submission from the Scientific secretariat of 3D Echo 360° Workshop.



ABSTRACT SELECTION RESULTS with the assigned scores will be published by July 5, 2019 on the 3D Echo 360° website.

Each Presenter will receive an email notification of acceptance and will be requested to send an agreement for poster and e-poster presentation.
Selected abstracts will be displayed as posters during the workshop in the lobby in a dedicated poster area and will be discussed with members of the Faculty. Clinical cases will be discussed in a dedicated session.

Poster Presenters will have a 10% discount on the registration fee

All selected abstracts will be displayed online as e-Posters on the official site of 3D Echo 360° Workshop.

Technical information for Poster Presenters

Maximum dimensions for the poster are LANDSCAPE - 140cm wide / 100cm high


Design your poster layout in the following sections:

  1. Title, author(s), institution (at upper edge, across the width of whole poster)
  2. Background/Purpose
  3. Methods
  4. Results
  5. Conclusions

The title should be emphasised by the use of bold-face type and should not be smaller than 15 mm when displayed. This should enable clear reading from a distance of 2-3 meters.

The abstract text should be divided by the inclusion of figures and/or tables. The use of colors makes the poster more attractive and effective.

Any relevant conflict of interest of the authors should be disclosed at the bottom of the poster.

Material for mounting your poster to the poster board will be supplied by the organisers. Please refer to the 3D Echo 360° staff in the poster area for further assistance.

Details on Poster Sessions and schedule of your poster display will be made available on the 3D Echo 360° Website by August 2019.
