This established course has been running for 8 years, King’s provides an exceptional faculty of internationally renowned experts in the field of cardiac MRI.
It covers the basic principles of CMR, its clinical indications and role in a multi-modality imaging environment. Delegates will learn in lectures and hands on sessions, at the end of the course they will have a solid understanding of when to refer a patient for Cardiovascular MRI and how to interpret CMR images and reporting. It is suitable for cardiologists and radiologists. Previous courses have approved by the Royal College of Physicians for 18 CPD points and by SCMR.
Feedback from delegates attending previous courses:
- Great for level 1 course. AC is very enthusiastic about MRI – very inspiring!
- Very knowledgeable & explains concepts well.
- 5 stars to the course! And all speakers!
- Glad Case Reviews and Post Processing were part of the day and able to apply what has been done/spoken about.
- All lectures are well structured and rich in relevance to the lecture subject content.
- Excellent case reviews , superb session, consolidating knowledge
- It was suitable for everyone who wants to start studying CMR
- Well-constructed and organised. Learned there is a good relationship between cardiology and radiographers working together
- I would highly recommend it to a colleague.
- Excellent overview and assessment. Great job Dr Chiribiri, Brilliant
- Excellent! Did what it said on the tin.
Southampton practical cardiac MRI course
Next event date: June 21, 2019
University Hospital Southampton, 17 – 21 June 2019
This five-day course is now in its 9th year and covers the theory and practical applications of cardiac MRI (CMR). It is designed for a small number of delegates to allow for hands-on workstation experience, small group tutorials and live scanning sessions – the emphasis being on developing the practical skills and knowledge to perform and report CMR. The course includes 14 hours of didactic lectures, four hours of observed live case scanning and 13 hours of workstation-based tutorials and case reviews. The programme covers the physics of basic MR through to advanced cardiac techniques including the practical application of the theory to optimise image acquisition. Clinical topics covered include: cardiac anatomy and function, late gadolinium enhancement, cardiomyopathies including the use of myocardial mapping techniques, basic congenital heart disease, and stress imaging with both adenosine and dobutamine. In addition we will also describe and demonstrate the role of newer scanning sequences, particularly compressed sense imaging, to improve image quality in potentially challenging patient groups.
Siemens Healthineers provides the workstations for the afternoon sessions, with one workstation being shared between two delegates. These sessions will cover CMR post-processing techniques as well as approximately 50 case reviews. Cases not reviewed during the course sessions will be provided electronically for private study.
This is a 5-day course covering the theory and practical applications of cardiac MRI (CMR). The lectures and clinical cases can contribute towards SCMR accreditation and training logbooks for the Cardiology and Radiology training programs. Certificates of completion of the course and clinical case logbook will be issued. 31 CME points have previously been awarded for this course and have been applied for.
