MRI for patients with cardiac devices

Course director: Dr Anish Bhuva & Lizette Cash

When: Monday 12th November 2018

Where: Barts Heart Centre, St Bartholomew’s Hosptial- London, EC1A 7BE

How to register: Tickets are available on Eventbrite. When the course is full we will begin a reserve list for the next course date.

Other information: There are approximately 70,000 patients with cardiac devices who need MRI scans in England. Within the NHS, we provide just 1,000. This course is designed to help radiographers grow that number. This is a one day course designed to help scan patient with cardiac devices safely.

Who should attend? This course is aimed at radiographers, cardiac physiologists, radiologists and cardiologists who either perform MRI, or refer patients for MRI. We would encourage those planning on setting up a service for MRI scanning in patients with devices to attend. The course will provide theory, practical tips and Live Scanning to cover all aspects of service delivery.

After this course, the attendees should be able to:
Identify the need for MRI scans in patients with cardiac devices
Have a practical understanding of different devices
Have a better appreciation of the potential risks and benefits of scanning
Be able to deal with more challenging scenarios
