Current Guidelines

SCMR Training Guidelines  2018

Please note that the ACCF COCATS 4 Taskforce 8 Guidelines (ACCF T8) differ from the SCMR guidelines as ACCF TF8 covers only cardiac magnetic resonance and not cardiovascular MR.  While the SCMR fully endorses the ACCF Taskforce 8 Guidelines, the Society does not provide a letter of verification for completing these training requirements. SCMR provides a letter of verification only to those satisfying the SCMR guidelines published in 2000 and updated in 2007 and 2018.

Please visit this page for more information and to submit a form to apply for Levels I, II or III SCMR Letter of Verification.

You will be prompted to pay the fee once you have submitted the form.*
