CMR Academy - Myocardial tissue characterization using parametric MRI

Add to calendar23/11/20170:00 24/11/20170:00 Europe/Paris CMR Academy - Myocardial tissue characterization using parametric MRI

This workshop offers dedicated training on the principles and applications for quantitative tissue characterization using T1, T2, and T2* mapping techniques.

The course focuses on advantages and limitations of novel pulse sequences for parametric mapping and their clinical applications for assessing fibrotic, inflammatory and infiltrative cardiomyopathies, myocardial edema and iron overload.
