Dubai: Dubai is set to host the fifth edition of the Gulf Intervention Society (GIS) from November 16 to 18. The event, which will be at the Intercontinental Festival City Hotel, Dubai, brings together senior interventional cardiology specialists and interventional surgery specialists from the region and the globe.
The attendees will research future treatments and discuss the latest findings of science in this field in order to enhance cooperation between regional and international bodies.
Dr. Fawaz Al Mutairi, President of the Gulf Intervention Society and Cardiologist King Abdulaziz Cardiac Center National Guard Hospital, Riyadh, shared that “at this event, live cases will be presented to discuss how to address the challenges of birth defects, in addition to the most prominent challenges of clinical trials that were presented at international and regional conferences and are presented by a large group of cardiologists and interventionists in all the countries of the world.”
“Experts will explore the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into this critical procedure, showcasing its potential to revolutionize disease detection, diagnostic accuracy, and interventional procedures. Participants will gain insights into the application of AI in CT imaging, its role in enhancing valve diagnosis, and the potential of automation, robotics, and remote control in interventional cardiology,” Dr. Fawaz added.
According to reports, hands-on training sessions will provide attendees with practical experience in applying AI to coronary, interventional, and CT vascular imaging, as well as the utilization of augmented reality and virtual reality for organ function assessment using robots.
The GIS aims to lead the cardiovascular surgery community by providing guidance and education and sharing the latest research.
The event will also witness more than 23 complex cases that will be discussed live and 30 cases recorded over the three scientific days. Furthermore, four operations will be broadcast live from the National Heart Center in Royal Hospital, Muscat, Oman; Al Qassimi Hospital, Sharjah, UAE; King Abdulaziz Cardiac Center; National Guard Hospital, Riyadh, KSA; and Chest Diseases Hospital, Kuwait.
