Program and Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify normal cardiovascular anatomy and normal anatomic variants
- Determine the spectrum of ischemic and non-ischemic cardiomyopathies, including function, rest and stress perfusion and viability
- Evaluate pericardial constriction, cardiac masses, valvular disease, pulmonary veins and cardiac shunts
- Identify new techniques such as assessment of area at risk and myocardial edema with T2W imaging
- Recognize imaging manifestations of cardiovascular disease, and the complementary role of MRI to echocardiography, CT and cardiac catheterization in therapeutic decision making
- Apply the technical basis of Cardiac MR, including hardware requirements, sequence selection and optimization, and technical limitations
- Apply post-processing techniques for functional, flow and angiographic evaluation
- 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.”
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).
