OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
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.
Registration will open on 3 August.
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.
The course is designed for trainees and consultants, either cardiologists or radiologists that want to get certified in CMR by the EACVI.
An application will be made to the EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event.
