The Vascular Imaging Laboratory is proud to present our second imaging symposium, Carotid Atherosclerosis Imaging:  Application in Clinical Trials and Natural History Studies.  This symposium, which is being offered in conjunction with the Workshop In Carotid Imaging,  will bring together imaging experts, cardiovascular pathologists, and clinicians to discuss the current status of imaging of carotid atherosclerosis, to understand the quantitative information obtained from different imaging modalities and their association with atherosclerosis, and to determine future directions in clinical trial design and risk assessment.

Target Audience:
The symposium is aimed at clinical researchers, the imaging community, vascular surgeons, radiologists, pharmaceutical scientists, and clinical trial decision makers.

The Vascular Imaging Laboratory at the University of Washington is located at the newly built South Lake Union Campus. The campus is located in the heart of Seattle’s growing biotech corridor and features numerous conference rooms, a cafeteria, and a 140 seat auditorium. It is convenient to hotels as well as to downtown Seattle’s vibrant shopping and dining core.

After the symposium, please join us at the Pan Pacific Hotel for hot hors d'oeuvres, which will include roasted salmon and beverages.  The hotel is just minutes away from the South Lake Union campus.
