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
