Online Hands-On Workshop 

Mimics Enlight TMVR Planner

The complexity of procedures is increasing along with the need for enhanced planning and training. A growing number of clinicians are using 3D planning to prepare for structural heart interventions with more confidence. Unprecedented insights are revealed when using 3D planning to create pre-procedural plans.  

Join us to gain firsthand experience 3D planning for TMVR during this online hands-on workshop. You’ll have the opportunity to use the Mimics Enlight TMVR planner and discover the benefits of 3D planning for structural heart interventions. After the workshop, you will receive a three week evaluation license so you can become a 3D planning expert yourself.
