Think Interventional CRT Physician Education Course

Get to Know Your Think Interventional CRT Proctors

Interventional CRT (I-CRT) is an approach that utilizes interventional cardiology tools and techniques to facilitate the implantation of LV leads. Expert faculty utilize didactic presentations and hands-on training to share techniques, including CS cannulation, telescoping, and snaring, which can help improve efficiency and success rates.
