After monitoring the situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) closely, the SCMR leadership has made the difficult, but necessary, decision to no longer offer the Foundations of CMR - A Level I SCMR Workshop in San Francisco, California. The safety and well-being of our members and attendees is of paramount importance.

The workshop will now be a completely virtual experience.

Join us for this Level I SCMR 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, MOC, and ASRT credits for the time spent in the course.

The program will consist of a virtual experience held June 25-27, 2020. SCMR facilitators will guide attendees through a series of cases covering congenital, perfusion, and other rare cases. In addition, attendees will have access to eight (8) hours of on-demand content for 60 days.
