This course will review advanced techniques for characterizing myocardial tissue abnormalities and measuring function. The course will also overview rapid acquisition approaches for assessing cardiac disease as well as exploring multimodality strategies for imaging the heart.

Target Audience
Attendees, both physicians and scientists, who have intermediate to advanced knowledge of cardiac MR methodology, who wish to learn about evolving approaches to assessing cardiac disease and become familiar with emerging imaging technologies.

Educational Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Identify novel techniques for assessing cardiac function and evaluating myocardial function;
-Employ rapid acquisition strategies for comprehensive MR assessment of the heart; and
-Review multimodality approaches to assessing cardiac pathology.

Georges El Fakhri
In this talk, recent developments in Positron Emission Tomogrpahy (PET) / Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are explored and the challenges of simultaneous imaging as well as the opportunities afforded by the two modalities are discussed for brain, cardiac and oncologic applications.

Dara Kraitchman
X-ray imaging fused with MRI offers the ability to provide dynamic, metabolic and/or high resolution soft tissue details with the interactivity or ability to use commonly available instruments and devices for interventional procedures.
