Clinical Challenges in Cardiovascular MRI
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced
ORGANIZERS: Daniel B. Ennis, Ph.D. & Harald Kramer, M.D.
Thursday, 04 June 2015
This course will provide an in-depth overview of the clinical challenges associated with MRI exams for the most challenging patients. Attendees will gain insight from worldwide leaders in cardiac MRI for pediatric patients, very sick patients, and congenital heart disease.
Attendees with a background in cardiac MRI that are interested in strengthening their expertise for imaging our most challenging patients will benefit the most from attending this course.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Attendees will be able to identify protocols and strategies for making cardiac MRI fast, safe, and accurate.;
  • Attendees will be able to understand which techniques are most amenable to imaging very sick patients; and
  • Attendees will be able to apply the methods describe in this session to their own clinical practice.


Moderators: Thomas K. F. Foo, Ph.D. & Jeanette Schulz-Menger, M.D.
