The Southampton Cardiac MRI Course for Radiographers

Next event date: November 13, 2019

Director: Jane Long
Date/Time: Monday 11th November – Wednesday 13th November 2019
Venue: The Hearbeat Suite and Cardiac MRI Department, University Hospital Southampton,

How to Register:
E-mail: jane.long@uhs.nhs.ukfor a registration document

Other Information:
This stimulating Cardiac MRI course is now in its 12th year.
It is targeted at radiographers with current MRI experience who are interested in obtaining practical and theoretical knowledge of cardiac MRI.
The course will cover the more commonly requested areas of cardiac MRI such as myocardial viability and aorta imaging at both a theoretical and practical level – the emphasis being on providing the practical skills and knowledge to :
obtain the correct scan planes
optimise scan sequences
provide maximum spatial and temporal resolution
minimising artefacts.
Cardiac MRI physics, ECG gating, and cardiac imaging will be covered in a comprehensive and interactive manner.
The course structure consists of formal lectures, informal tutorial groups, interactive live case studies and hands-on scanning on a Siemens Sola 1.5T scanner.
The aim is to provide clear and comprehensive knowledge of basic cardiac MRI allowing Radiographers to confidently scan cardiac patients.
