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.

Cine, T2 weighted and late gadolinium enhancement images should usually be included, but cases where not all these images are available may also be considered . T1 pre/post contrast maps, ECV, and T2 maps are optional, but encouraged where available. Any other images that highlight key findings of the case can be added.

Still frame images that highlight the CMR findings should be submitted separately in .JPG, .TIFF, .GIF, or .BMP format. Movies can be submitted as .MPEG, .MOV, .AVI, or .MP4 format. DICOMS are also acceptable.
Once the text and key images submission has been received by the COVID-19 Case Repository Review team, the Editor will review the submission.
