CLINICAL CATEGORICAL COURSE
CMR of Myocardial Infarction
Organizers: Christopher M. Kramer, M.D., Debiao Li, Ph.D.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Tuesday, 6 May 2008
This two-hour course will present the state of the art of the use of CMR in patients with acute myocardial infarction. Attendees will come away with an improved understanding of the use of CMR in the measurement of infarct size, areas of microvascular obstruction, and area at risk using late gadolinium enhancement and T2-weighted techniques. The use of CMR to measure LV remodeling over time after MI and to assess the potential of stem cell tracking in both animal models and humans will be discussed.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
The clinical categorical courses are designed for clinical radiologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, cardiologists, oncologists, practicing clinicians and scientists, from beginning to advanced experience levels working in MR.
