COVID-19 Case Collection

COVID-19 CASE collection SUBMISSION

SCMR has created a repository of CMR cases in patients with COVID-19 infection. The goal of this case collection is to provide a rapid reference of the CMR findings associated with the infection and to create an educational resource for all involved in the care of patients with COVID-19 infection.

Submitted cases will be fast-tracked for peer-review by the web committee and can be listed as a peer reviewed web publication on CV’s. Cases will initially be posted on the SCMR homepage and then be available in an archive for reference purposes.
