Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: DIAGNOSTICA E PROCEDURE CARDIOVASCOLARI INVASIVE
------------------------
To promote the understanding of the new diagnostic and interventional techniques applied to the most frequent cardiovascular diseases in the coronary and peripheral circulation, heart valve disease and acute heart failure.
------------------------
MM: METODI E TECNICHE DI EMODINAMICA
------------------------
The course aims to give the students a practical/theoretical knowledge on the main diagnostic and therapeutics procedures that are performed in the field of interventional cardiology. This is achieved by traditional lessons, round-table discussions and on-site activities directly into the cath lab. Furthermore, the course intends to give the student an overview of the basic and advanced technologies that may be used or interpreted during the professional career of the technician working in the cath-lab.
