Thursday, 20 May 2004, 10:30 - 12:30
Last updated 05 May 2009

Course Description:
course will present basic MR techniques for assessing myocardial structure, function, viability, and perfusion as well as their clinical applications in the setting of acquired cardiac disease.  The latest developments in coronary lumen and wall imaging in MR will be discussed.  This course is designed for persons with interests but limited experience in cardiac MR.
Educational Objectives:
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
 Describe basic areas of routine and promising clinical use of MR in assessing cardiovascular disease;
Apply MR protocols for determination of cardiac morphology, dynamic function, flow, and physiologic status;
Explain methodology that aids in the interpretation of results for cardiac MR assessment of acquired cardiac disease;
Compare approaches for optimal presentation and analysis of cardiac MR results.
