Congratulations to Avanti Gulhane who received the SCMR travel award to the annual meeting in Barcelona, Spain this year. She presented two studies: 

  1. "Determination of Conducting Channels from LGE CMR in patients with Myocardial Infarction-Comparison with Electroanatomic Mapping for Ventricular Tachycardia Ablation"
  2. "Evaluation of LGE-CMR for predicting ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation sites in Nonischemic cardiomyopathy (NICM) –comparison with electroanatomic maps (EAM)"

The first study was recognized in the "Best of Moderated" electronic poster session.
