On my way to ESC 2012

I'm presenting some data about the imaging of early atherosclerosis, at the ESC in Munich this Saturday link to session. The session will be webcast should you be at a loose end.

The heart.org, as always, has a great preview of what to expect from the meeting:

Munich, Germany - This year's European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2012 Congress is back in Bavaria after a four-year absence. Organizers of the meeting say the line-up of hot-line trials offers a mix of new treatments as well as several seeking to prove once and for all whether certain treatments, used for years, are really the best approach.

In all, this year's program includes 18 hot lines, grouped in three sessions over three days. Among the studies garnering the biggest buzz in the lead-up to the ESC meeting is TRILOGY-ACS, a comparison of prasugrel and clopidogrel in the setting of medically managed unstable angina/NSTEMI.

Read their full preview here.

Hopefully there'll be time for beer and sausages too. And I know from experience that there are some great parks where I can jog for miles.

I'll keep you posted, probably via Twitter
