EuroCMR Registry

European CMR Registry

Non-invasive Imaging: Magnetic Resonance Imaging

It gives us a great deal of pleasure to announce the first European Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (EuroCMR) registry, which is an initiative of the former ESC Working Group Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, now a section of the EACVI. Enrolment of patients on a European level started in March 2009.

During a German pilot phase of the EuroCMR registry more than 11,040 patients at 20 participating sites have been enrolled between April 2007 and January 2009, resulting in the largest database on the clinical use, the impact on patient management, image quality and safety of cardiovascular MR (CMR) available so far.

The enormous support and the amazing number of contributions to this German pilot phase have encouraged the Steering Committee to move forward to the European level, and to pursue even more ambitious goals. In addition to collecting data on clinical use, impact on patient management, quality and safety of CMR on a European level, dedicated scientific issues will be addressed by individual additional protocols.
