Event description

Description

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 patients 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, and will provide theory, practical tips and Live Scanning to cover all aspects of service delivery.

Objectives

After this course, the attendees should be able to:

-Identify the need for MRI scans in patients with devices.

-Have a practical understanding of different devices

-Have better appreciation of the potential risk and benefits of scanning

-Be able to deal with more challenging scenarios
