Course overview

This new 1 day course covers key topics in the area of Stress Perfusion Imaging.
Dr Amedeo Chiribri is the course director for the established Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance and is the co-director on the Stress Perfusion course along with Dr Adriana Villa. King’s provides an exceptional faculty of internationally renowned experts in the field of cardiac.
The course has been approved by the Royal College of Physicians for 7 CPD points.It will be helpful if students have achieved SCMR level 1 certification as the course covers advanced topics but this is not mandatory.
