Belgian Working Group on Non-Invasive Cardiac Imaging (BWGNICI)

Belgian Working Group on Non-Invasive Cardiac Imaging (BWGNICI)

The Belgian Working Group on Echocardiography was created more than 20 years ago. Eight years ago, due to the evolution of non-invasive clinical imaging in Cardiology this working group was merged with the Working Group on Cardiac Magnetic Resonance as The Belgian Working Group on Non-Invasive Cardiac Imaging (BWGNICI) as a working group of the Belgian Society of Cardiology.

The objectives of the Working Group are:

  1. To promote the quality of echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance and cardiac computed tomography in Belgium.
  2. To inform the community regarding technical progress
