Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We can't believe it's already the last day of our EACVI/SCMR joint meeting! But we still have a full day of science ahead, with all rooms running until 16:30, when we will gather a last time for the Closing Plenary.
Our highlights today start with the Outreach Sessions throughout all morning. Key opinion leaders outside the CMR field were invited to the session. We hope this session will trigger interesting debate in our CMR community, opening new horizons for impactful clinical research to change patients’ management and improve prognosis.
For those more technique oriented, don’t miss the session on New Techniques in Development and New Techniques Ready for Clinical Applications to learn what will soon be the next novel CMR technique that will make a difference in scanning your patients.
We will also discuss the special topic of Cardio-Oncology, an important emerging CMR clinical application, where CMR can potentially shed some light on tissue and functional changes during and after cancer treatment.
Also, don’t miss the most difficult questions in MRI Viability How and Why and a discussion with experts on Tissue Characterization.
Today we will also know the winners of two Awards: theBest eModerated Poster and the Best SCMR Case of the Week.
Finally, the Closing Plenary will see our EACVI CMR Section Keynote speaker Prof James Moon will inspire us on the topic of myocardial plasticity, adaptation and maladaptation. .
We wish you a fantastic last intense day of learning and sharing, and hope you'll continue to make the most of this unique opportunity to meet with CMR colleagues and friends from all over the world - it's been wonderful to be here with you all.
Together we have reached an incredible milestone, the largest CMR meeting ever! The international CMR community is vibrant and our field is growing, increasingly making a difference in patients with cardiovascular diseases. Your participation is what makes our meeting so relevant and worthwhile attending - it's together that we're moving forward.
We also hope to see you soon for new adventures. Mark your calendar for SCMR Scientific Sessions 2019 (6-9 February 2019 in Seattle, USA) and EuroCMR 2019 (2-4 May 2019 in Venice, Italy).
Many thanks again for attending CMR 2018, enjoy your day and safe travels back home tomorrow.
