Webcasts EuroCMR 2010

Non-Invasive Imaging

The 8th Annual EuroCMR Meeting 2010 was held in Florence from May 27th to 29th May 2010. 

The meeting focused on :

  • Advanced teaching in CMR 
  • Latest developments in CMR research
  • Case readings with the experts
  • Interactive forum for CMR users
  • special session for technologists.

Many thanks to Dr. Giovanni Quarta, Dr Margherita Calcagnino and Dr Shereen Al-Sheikh along with Medupdate for the recordings below.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank  all participants.
