Abstract

The Asian Society of Cardiovascular Imaging-Practical Tutorial (ASCI-PT) is an educational program of the ASCI School, which was founded in 2019. In 2020, ASCI-PT was held from November 23rd to 25th for the purpose of creating a consensus statement on semi-quantitative scoring for late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. Eighteen panelists from five countries meticulously reviewed the existing guidelines and addressed seven issues to improve the communication of LGE interpretation and reduce inter-observer variability. All panels participated in online or offline sessions to build a consensus on LGE scoring. This summarizes the ASCI-PT 2020 proceedings and provides a consensus statement for conducting semi-quantitative LGE scoring.
