WELCOME MESSAGE

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, we are witnessing very rapid developments in the field of Cardiac Imaging and Clinical Cardiology. Therefore, young physicians are finding it difficult to strike the right balance between the Science in Cardiac imaging and the Art in bedside clinics. This situation has not much changed since we got our independence in 1947. At that time, itself, Dr. Paul Hamilton Wood (1907 – 1962), born in Coonoor (Tamil Nadu) on 16. 08. 1907, was performing Cardiac Catheterization at the Hammersmith Hospital, London.   

In his famous text book on the ‘Diseases of the Heart and Circulation’ Dr. Paul Wood had remembered the invention of Roentgen’s Beam (1895), by Riva Roca’s Sphygmomanometer (1896), by Mackenzie’s Polygraph (1902) and Einthoven’s String Galvanometer (1903) that helped in solving / clarifying innumerable problems in the hands of expert clinicians. He later traced the sequential developments in understanding the diseases of the heart. He admired the courage of Dr. Werner Forssmann who first performed coronary angiogram on himself in 1929. He also acknowledged the precision of knowledge provided to the surgeons by these tests and at the same time had expressed his apprehensions stating that ‘… we are in danger of losing our clinical heritage and on pinning of too much faith in figures thrown up by machines’. He wondered stating that ‘Medicine must suffer, if this tendency is not checked’. Therefore, he declares his book as only an attempt to ‘…. maintain a proper balance between man and his instruments, between experienced opinion and statistics, between traditional views and the heterodox, between bed-side medicine and special tests, between practical and the academic and so to likn the past with the present.’

The above view on the Science of Cardiology has undergone very little change for nearly a century. Even we could have done very little today to save him, even with the current technology, if we had not lost him on 13.07.1962 from a fatal myocardial infarction. Clinical skills and wisdom rapidly developed in early 20th century, Scientific understanding developed in the latter half of the 20th century while the, cutting edge technology like the CECT, SPECT-CT, CMR and the Cardiac PET CT is available only now in the 21st century. In this historic WCCICC-2019, headed by Dr. G. N. Mahapatra and his esteemed team, we wish to integrate the experts from all over the world so that we could share, update and enrich their knowledge as well as sharpen our skills in science of Cardiac Imaging and the art of Clinical Cardiology.
