Joint Annual Meeting ISMRM-ESMRMB • 16-21 June 2018 • Paris, France

Member-Initiated Symposium
The Future of Cardiac MRI: Rapidly Addressing the Unmet Clinical Needs
The Future of Cardiac MRI: Rapidly Addressing the Unmet Clinical Needs
Member-Initiated Symposium

ORGANIZERS: Giulia Ginami, Tim Leiner, Michael Salerno

Tuesday, 19 June 2018
S05  16:15 - 18:15

Session Number: MIS-12

This proposal is submitted on behalf of the Cardiac MR Study Group.

The proposed symposium will critically review the technical developments that have significantly improved the clinical usage of cardiac MRI during the last decade and will offer an overview of the cutting-edge research developments that could be game-changers in propelling the broad clinical adoption of cardiac MRI as the preferred imaging modality for multiple cardiac pathologies. It will consist of 5 presentations. The first presentation will be given by a clinician with a substantial clinical experience who will provide a broad perspective on the achievements of the past decade, and propose areas of unmet clinical needs. The other 4 speakers will provide a technical focus describing how to address the unmet clinical needs in the areas of acceleration of data acquisition, motion compensation, parametric mapping using novel relaxometry techniques, and parametric mapping using magnetic resonance fingerprinting. Overall, the proposed symposium aims at providing a platform for a fertile discussion between clinicians and technical scientists to 1) underline the aspects that are currently limiting the usage of cardiac MRI for patient care and 2) analyze cutting-edge research developments that could ultimately address those hurdles and lead to a broader adoption of cardiac MRI by the clinical community. We believe that the proposed symposium will offer a valuable complement to the 2018 ISMRM Meeting Program.

Target Audience
Every ISMRM member wishing to participate to a platform for discussion on cutting-edge research developments in Cardiac MRI.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Recognize previous and current application of cardiac MR;
- Identify unmet clinical needs and technical challenges; and
- Describe state-of-the-art technical developments for cardiac MRI.
