This course will review and discuss new developments in acquisition and reconstruction strategies.

Target Audience
Scientists and clinicians with interest in cardiovascular imaging.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
-Recognize new developments in cardiovascular acquisition & pulse sequences; and
-Describe new developments in motion correction.


  New Developments in Sequences for Cardiovascular MR
Behzad Sharif
This presentation aims to achieve three tasks: (a) outline recent developments in non-Cartesian cardiac MRI approaches used for myocardial tissue characterization and myocardial perfusion imaging; (b) describe continuous data acquisition techniques which aim to capture the dynamics of the function/anatomy of the heart without the need for breath-holding and/or ECG gating; and (c) provide an overview of the evolving approaches for joint parametric mapping techniques including myocardial MR fingerprinting and multi-tasking which aim to drastically simplify the workflow in clinical cardiac MR protocols.  

  New Developments in Motion Correction for Cardiovascular MR
Mehdi Hedjazi
Cardiac and respiratory motion remains a significant hurdle for widespread clinical adoption of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). This lecture will cover key concepts in cardiac and respiratory motion correction, including electrocardiogram (ECG) gating, cardiac self-gating, respiratory navigators, respiratory self-gating, and the state-of-the-art comprehensive 3D cine CMR and fetal cardiac imaging.
