EACVI CMR Pocket Guides

Pocket Guides dedicated to Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance

The clinical indications for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) continue to expand. These pocket guides are a day-to-day companion for those new to CMR and for those looking for a quick reference guide in routine practice.


The Pocket Guides give an overview of established normal ranges for CMR measurements, common acquisition methods and clinical indications for CMR. For each indication we provide typical scan protocols, tips and tricks, and a guide for reporting.

These publications are endorsed by the EACVI.
