Society For Cardiac Robotic Navigation (Americas) is a non-profit organization. SCRN(A) was founded February 2017 by participants of the 14th International Winter Arrhythmia School in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. In October 2017 it forged an Alliance with SCRN EU, (founded in 2015). Thus forming a Global SCRN.
Believing in the future of robotics technologies on one side and recognising its under-representation in daily clinical practice on the other side,
SCRN aims to establish a platform for users of remote technology in cardiology
Although all founders are electrophysiologists, activities are not intended to be limited to this field or any particular technology.
SCRN's main principle is to remain an independent, non-profit organisation aiming to promote innovation and development in existing, upcoming and future technologies in the field.
Our SCRN Members support our efforts and activities on an annual basis.
“SCRN is a platform where the pioneers in the domain of robotic-assisted cardiovascular interventions meet with the leading interventionalists and clinical experts and share their research, exchange ideas, and shape the future of the field.”
“This organization is an essential and unique opportunity to enhance communication between all interested parties, including physicians, allied professionals, engineers, scientists, and industry-partners.”
“SCRN provides a dynamic platform for anyone interested in and has passion for automation in cardiac electrophysiology”
The first Inaugural Meeting of SCRN took place at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam on 20-21 October 2016. The audience of a little under 50 participants had a first glimpse of what SCRN stands for and was given the opportunity to listen and contribute to discussions from speakers own-site as well as video presentations from the United Kingdom.
The second meeting of SCRN was hosted by Prof. Pedro Adragāo, at Hospital Da Luz on 19-20 October 2017. The audience watches live cases from Lisbon as well as boxed cases. The comfortable auditorium of Da Luz Hospital was the perfect setting for engaged discussions, in-depth presentations and new ideas around the use of robotic technologies in medicine.
