Course information

The course is aimed at participants from Mexico and surrounding countries, in particular last year residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in Cardiovascular Radiology. This course is designed to address recent updates and well-established applications in this fast-evolving field within Radiology. It is organized as a multimodality course discussing the most relevant clinical applications of both Cardiac CT and MR together with clear recommendations for optimized imaging protocol and structured approach to reporting. One clinical focus will be the state-of-the-art application of Cardiac MR in the characterization of ischemic and non-ischemic myocardial disease. Another main topic will include the use of Cardiac CT in the visualization of coronary arteries and the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Finally, recent imaging recommendations to describe carotid diseases will be presented and discussed. The faculty consists on renowned European and Mexican experts who will ensure high-quality teaching. The well-established ESOR course structure will be followed by combining lectures and interactive case discussions.

Learning objectives

• To learn and consolidate knowledge the clinical use of Cardiac MR in the characterization of myocardial diseases
• To learn about the emerging role of Cardiac CT in the management of patients suffering from coronary artery disease
• To advance knowledge in the state-of-the-art examination and interpretation of carotid diseases
