Description: We provide one week of intensive cardiac MRI training. Aim of the course is to provide fundamental insights into routine cardiac MRI and routine diagnostic indications, such as adenosine stress perfusion CMR and CMR for myocariditis.

Up to 6 cardiac MRIs per day will be performed in a condensed time schedule of 4 hours. The rest of the time will be spent on a workstation reviewing more than 100 interesting cases and discussing cardiac pathologies on MRI.

The compact course includes more than 15 hours of theoretical coursework. Live patient demos are provided, including dobutamine stress and perfusion imaging. A wide variety of cases is presented and discussed. Basic knowledge on MR techniques and basic cardiac physiology and pathophysiology is taught separately for radiologists and cardiologists. The spectrum of topics will be continuously modified in order to keep up-to-date with clinical and technical developments.

The course contains lectures on:

  • Basics in physics
  • Basic cardiac physiology & pathophysiology
  • Anatomy of the heart
  • Assessment of left and right ventricular function
  • CMR examination under dobutamine stress
  • Perfusion measurements
  • Diagnosis of myocardial infarction
  • Imaging of the coronary arteries
  • Diagnosis of valvular heart disease
  • Diagnosis of neoplasia
  • Imaging of thoracic and peripheral vessels
  • Patient scanning will be performed for dobutamine stress examinations, perfusion imaging, and infarct imaging
  • Case demonstrations round up the lectures
