Cardiac MR

Earn up to 34.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 25 SAM Credits

This three-day course led by Juan Carlos Batlle, MD, is designed to optimize clinical practice skills by providing intense training in interpreting cardiac MR examinations under the supervision of expert faculty.

Participants will use a FUJI Synapse workstation and have access to over 150 cardiac MR and vascular MR angiography cases for review. Post-processing techniques and interpretation will be emphasized. The course also covers technical considerations for obtaining optimal examinations for interpretation.

Program and Learning Objectives


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify normal cardiovascular anatomy and normal anatomic variants
  2. Determine the spectrum of ischemic and non-ischemic cardiomyopathies, including function, rest and stress perfusion and viability
  3. Evaluate pericardial constriction, cardiac masses, valvular disease, pulmonary veins and cardiac shunts
  4. Identify new techniques such as assessment of area at risk and myocardial edema with T2W imaging
  5. Recognize imaging manifestations of cardiovascular disease, and the complementary role of MRI to echocardiography, CT and cardiac catheterization in therapeutic decision making
  6. Apply the technical basis of Cardiac MR, including hardware requirements, sequence selection and optimization, and technical limitations
  7. Apply post-processing techniques for functional, flow and angiographic evaluation
  8. Review ongoing technical and clinical developments in the field of Cardiac MR

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


I am already planning my next course. After this great experience, I don't think there is a need to go anywhere else for a worthwhile learning experience.

“Excellent teaching by the faculty. I really appreciate the time that each spent discussing not only “textbook” style teaching, but also addressing how they would approach a case in practice.”

Certificate


Attendees who interpret a minimum of 50 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency stating they meet the case requirement as specified in the ACR Practice Guideline for Performance and Interpretation of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
