Summary

The course is designed for trainees and consultants, either cardiologists or radiologists that want to get certified in CMR by the EACVI. The EACVI certification is the only process worldwide and there is today no other preparatory course.



Register now

New tihs year: you have the option to register for an extra morning of Physics session.

Course objectives

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 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

Target Audience

The course is designed for trainees and consultants, either cardiologists or radiologists that want to get certified in CMR by the EACVI.

Scientific Programme

An application will be made to the EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event.
