Visiting Professorship Programme to Georgia

ESOR Course on Cardiac Imaging | May 26, 2023

Course information

The course is aimed at participants from Georgia in particular last year residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in Cardiovascular Radiology and will cover level II and III knowledge as defined by the European Trainings Curriculum (ETC). This course is designed to address recent updates and well established applications in the fast evolving field of Cardiac Radiology. It is organized as a multimodality course discussing the most relevant clinical applications of both Cardiac CT and MR with a slight focus on MR. The presentations will provide clear recommendations for optimized imaging protocol as well as structured approach to reporting. One specific clinical focus of this course will be on the state-of-the-art application of Cardiac MR in the characterization of ischemic and non-ischemic myocardial disease, as well as on the assessment of the right ventricle. Another main topic will include the use of Cardiac CT in the visualization of coronary arteries and the diagnosis of coronary artery disease, even beyond stenosis detection and quantification. The faculty consists of three well known European experts who will ensure high-quality teaching. The successful structure of ESOR courses by combining the lectures with directly related interactive case discussions will be followed even in this course.

Learning objectives

  • To learn and consolidate the knowledge about the clinical use of Cardiac MR in the characterization of myocardial diseases
  • Get familiar with the ability of Cardiac CT to assess the individual cardiovascular risk and to predict the outcome of patients with coronary artery disease
  • Learn about the emerging role of Cardiac CT and MR in the management of patients suffering from coronary artery disease and ischemic cardiomyopathies
  • To advance the knowledge in the state-of-the-art assessment of the right ventricle
