Asklepios course on cardiac imaging

11. – 13.10.
2023

Medical University Graz

What to expect

This 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 heart disease and the use of stress MR techniques up to differential diagnosis of cardiomyopathies and congenital and valvular heart disease. The combination of theory and cases with an interactive character guarantees the high educational value of this teaching programme.

Accreditation

The course has been granted 5 European CME credits (ECMEC®s) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

Certificates with CME credits will be issued only after watching the live stream and completing an online evaluation form.

No CME credits will be available for watching on demand.

Learning Objectives
