Next session should happen in November 2017 - More details to come soon, stay tuned!


This course is dedicated to helping in certification preparation.
The programme encompasses a mix of interactive lectures, heavily hands-on practical with simulation scanning and image analysis sessions on dedicated workstations performed directly by attendees.
It also includes a review of clinical 50 cases that can contribute to the logbook of cases to submit for ESC CMR certification.  

  • Review the principle of CMR physics
  • Review the role of CMR in acquired cardiovascular disease
  • Review the role of CMR in congenital cardiovascular disease  
  • Learn image analysis during hands-on sessions
  • Learn image interpretation during interactive read with the experts sessions
