Oral Paper Presentation

It was an excellent academic feast for this year’s annual conference of the Indian association of cardiac Imaging.

We received 24 papers from various institutions across India presenting their research in the past year. Among these 24 papers, nine were shortlisted for podium presentation based on their content during the two days of the confluence.

Dr. Ravi Bhatina from California, Dr. Babu Peter from Chennai, Dr. Priya Jagia from New Delhi and Dr. Mahesha Bannur from Mysore judged the oral paper presentations.

The following were the winners of a very competitive presentation.

The difference between the first and second prizes was only 0.5 points, and the third prize was tied between the two. This highlights the excellent content and high quality of cardiac imaging research in India.
