Event description

Description

This is a two day course and workshop for radiographers who do Cardiac MRI and wish to extend their knowledge. This course covers the practical aspect of performing a CMR with sessions covering relevant physics, cardiac anatomy, protocols and how to scan various common pathologies. We will cover ECGs, and image optimisation. We will have renowned experts in the field talk about new techniques.


Who should attend?

This course is aimed at radiographers who perform CMR but who may not have the support from physicists, cardiologists and more experienced radiographers and for those who wish to further their knowledge.


Objectives

After this course, the attendees should be able to

- Identify the different scanning plans and cardiac anatomy, and common pathologies

- Have a practical understanding of different cardiac MRI examinations

- Better appreciation of physics

- Be able to deal with more challenging scenarios and correct common image artifacts

- Learn how to do post processing and analysis of your scans!
