SCMR Global Registry
Share |



The SCMR Registry was established by the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance to collect and assimilate information on the international use of CMR with the goal of promoting use of this non-invasive cardiac imaging technology. The intent of the registry includes being the central collective body of evidence reflecting the current clinical applications in patient care, identifying change in patient impact from CMR over time and assessing the impact of CMR on diagnostic and therapeutic thinking, risk stratification, and even cost-effectiveness relevant to current patient management.

The SCMR Registry is designed to work with local or web-based CMR databases in order to collect predefined essential anonymized variables that will contribute to registry’s mission. Currently, CMR databases such as RedCap and CMRCOOP can easily share data with the SCMR Registry. Other databases, such as locally designed programs, may require scripts created by the registry team in order to allow for seamless data sharing. Institutions without CMR databases or those interested in changing to a cost and maintenance free online database should contact the SCMR registry team for more information.


The SCMR Registry aims to promote collaboration of CMR sites worldwide in setting imaging and reporting standards, assessing diagnostic impact to patient care, and determining the cost effectiveness of CMR imaging.

SCMR is now accepting proposals to collaborate and participant in the registry. Learn more
