Cardiac MRI in Today's Clinical Practice:

April 28 - 29, 2018

Gleacher CENTER

Chicago, IL

Join us for this SCMR Level I CMR certification workshop, as experts guide the participants through the fundamentals of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR), reflecting on the added value of using CMR in clinical practice.  There will be an emphasis on the clinical applications of CMR, with review of the appropriate use criteria and patients who might benefit most from the unique technology.  Clinical cases will be used liberally throughout the course to emphasize key concepts.  In addition to Level I certification, participants will be eligible to claim CME credits for the time spent in the course.

This Level I course is appropriate for:

  • Referring cardiologists and other health care professionals
  •  Radiologists interested in learning more about the clinical applications of CMR
  • Cardiology fellows seeking to fulfill Level I CMR requirements
  • Radiology residents looking to increase their CMR exposure
  • Allied health care professionals already involved in CMR wishing to better understand the clinical applicability of the technique
