TBD Credit Hours


At the end of this program, from formal presentations and cases, the participant will be able to:

  1. Understand pressure derived indices clinical applications, in various conditions.
  2. Gain new information and applications on epicardial and microvascular dysfunction, by exercise- pressure-, thermodilution- and flow-derived CFR.
  3. Gain an understanding of current adjunctive invasive imaging modalities, by OCT and IVUS, its applications and limitations.

Below please find the information regarding the cases for the Fellows Competition. It seems we have a lot of interest, so please send your case to Don Palisaitis as soon as possible. We need you to register on line at where it asks for amount type in 0.00, please also indicate in comments that you are submitting a case for the Fellows Competition.  Should your case get accepted as 1 of the 5, we will cover your flight and hotel for 1 night in Montreal (if required). Should it not get accepted, we would still like to have you there, and you would have to cover your travel and hotel. 

If you register for TIC as well, we have a special reduced fee of $200.00 for Fellows. Fellows can present cases at the TIC program on either Thursday or Saturday afternoon, providing their responsible physician is present and registered to the meeting.

 Dates for CPI – Feb. 1 evening Fellows competition, Marriott Montreal Airport In-Terminal Hotel, Feb. 2 Sacre Coeur Hospital. 

Dates for TIC – Feb. 2 evening reception in Tremblant.  Program runs from Feb. 2 until Feb. 5, 2022 6:00 pm.

There is a bus from Sacre-Coeur Hospital following CPI which will take you up to Tremblant. 

 The CPI Fellows Competition remains an exciting forum to share and discuss interesting (confusing?) and challenging cases with world renowned experts on imaging and coronary physiology.  We are looking for approximately 4-5 cases of either coronary physiology (FFR, iFR or CFR) or intracoronary imaging (OCT, IVUS) that will be selected to present on the Tuesday evening. We begin at 19h00 sharp.

Each presenter will have a total of 20 minutes. This timing will be carefully monitored by me. The cases are to be submitted to myself, and if selected, then need to be structured so that there are maximum 2 stop points where discussion will be requested.

Do not include slides with extraneous information…go to the point that is the highlight of your presentation. If people want to know more, they will ask. Try to finish within 20 minutes WITH your 2 stop points….

For submissions you will need the following: Summary, with the major teaching point (s). Will need cine loops for most…

Please submit Case to:  Don Palisaitis, MD,
