Language(s): English
Main Topic: Advanced Cardiac MR Imaging
Expected number of participants: 50 - 100
Type of course: School of MRI
Description: MRI has evolved to a valid and robust clinical tool in everyday practice. The unique feature of tissue characterisation by means of T1-/T2-/T2*-/ECV-mapping together with cardiac morphology, function and flow with excellent spatial, temporal and contrast resolution explain its outstanding role in imaging cardiac disease. Multiple sequence options require stringent tayloring of imaging protocols and knowledge of both, pathology and modality. Beginners and advanced course participants learn basic principles of cardiac MR and discuss dedicated protocols based on real cases. Clinical topics provide deep insight into congenital, valvular, ischemic, inflammatory, and pericardial disease as well as storage disorders, masses and cardiomyopathy. Participants discuss these disorders with respect to relevant clinical questions. Strengths and limitations of MR and CT are highlighted. The focus of this course is MR, but CT and its role for coronary imaging and cardiovascular risk assessment are also addressed.
