ESCed - the European Society of Cardiology’s new educational website


The European Society of Cardiology (EBAC), in association with the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC), has set up ESCed,, as a one-stop resource for case studies, guidelines, references and abstracts. ESCed registrants can compare answers and clinical decisions with colleagues across Europe and earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits by following the on-line courses.

Professor Roberto Ferrari, Ferrara, Italy, Chairman of the ESC Education Committee states, "ESCed is based on a patient management-led core curriculum and delivered through a series of case studies with a hands-on approach to patient management. The internet is an ideal way to link medical professionals from all over Europe and enable them to interact and discuss key topics with their colleagues. It is my belief that ESCed will swiftly become a leading resource and discussion forum in European cardiology".

Dr Keith McGregor, ESC Scientific Programmes Director, comments, "The clear course structure of ESCed is easy to follow and very dynamic, with new case studies and materials being added on a continual basis. Feedback from registrants is crucial to keeping ESCed up to date and ensuring the site is user-friendly. ESCed users can also offer case studies or other educational materials to be uploaded onto the system and shared with their colleagues. We have designed ESCed to be a fully-interactive on-line tool and encourage comments and suggestions from all visitors and registrants".

All ESCed content is in accordance with ESC Guidelines and been authorised for CME credits by both the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) and the European Accreditation Committee for CME in Europe (EACCME). For more details on CME in Europe see

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
