Cardiac MR Imaging - ON-LINE

September 18, 2020
Course informationThis course is intended for senior residents, subspecialists and recently board-certified radiologists. It is designed to provide an in-depth view into modern applications of cardiac MRI in the clinical practice. Recent advances, dedicated protocols and already established applications in cardiac MRI will be presented by a joint faculty consisting of internationally renowned European experts. The spectrum of clinical scenarios presented during this course will include topics spacing from coronary artery disease and the use of stress MR techniques up to differential diagnosis of cardiomyopathies, congenital and valvular heart disease, tumours and tumour-like lesions. Even latest innovations like mapping techniques, strain and 4D flow will be addressed. The combination of theory and cases with an interactive character guarantees the high educational value of this teaching programme.

Learning objectives
  • to review methodology and clinical aspects of modern cardiac MRI
  • to refresh knowledge about the clinical application of cardiac MRI in the stable and in the acute patient (with in-depth analysis of stress MR techniques)
  • to be familiar with the current guidelines, latest trends and innovations on cardiac MRI
  • to refresh knowledge about current best practice indications and integrated imaging techniques for the differentiation of cardiomyopathies and the imaging strategy in myocarditis
  • to understand the value of cardiac MRI in the assessment of grown-up congenital heart disease and valvular disease (with the additional use of 4D flow technique) as well as in differentiating between tumours and tumour-like lesions
