This document has aims to make proposals for a European standard for competency and excellence in CMR acquisition and reporting. This is to be achieved by providing recommendations for training of individuals wishing to perform and report CMR studies as well as for the accreditation of centres performing CMR studies and wishing to offer CMR training.
The document has been written in concordance with the ESC processes on accreditation and certification. However, it is emphasized that European certification of CMR competency or institutional accreditation in CMR as outlined in this document are not compulsory or regulatory certificates. An individual's right to report and sign clinical studies and an institution's right to provide a CMR service in individual countries remain defined by National laws and regulations.
These processes have been synchronized as much as possible with other recommendations for CMR training such as the Core Cardiology Curriculum of the ESC,1 those guidelines of the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR),2 and the European Association of Echocardiography.3
The WG recognizes that physicians who have completed their specialty training and hold a licence to practice medicine face different constraints than trainees and it will often be impractical for them to spend prolonged periods away from their place of work. These recommendations therefore include alternative training options for licensed physicians.
