Houston Methodist CMR - A Cardiac MRI Immersion Workshop

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is a unique imaging modality that is used in diagnosing — and subsequently managing — cardiovascular diseases in patients. CMR provides a robust, noninvasive means of assessing myocardial function, viability and morphology. Additionally, it can be useful in assessing valvular heart disease, cardiac tumors, and the vascular system. There are many advantages to obtaining a CMR. With detailed images and quantitations, referring physicians can obtain one test to answer their questions regarding treatment for their patients. This technologyholds tremendous promise in evaluating and treating cardiovascular diseases.

Associated with its robust nature, CMR is also a very complex technology with a steep learning curve. As a result, there are currently few centers performing CMR in routine clinical practice. The workshop covers the practical applications of cardiac MRI, including basic MRI principles, cardiac anatomy, late gadolinium enhancement, stress imaging, vascular imaging, case interpretations and troubleshooting image acquisitions.

This program emphasizes the development of practical skills and knowledge, therefore it is limited to small groups in order to better facilitate lectures and hands-on experiences. Designed for cardiologists, radiologists and technologists interested in gaining exposure to CMR, attendees can expect to review up to 50 clinical CMR cases during the workshop.
