Cardiac MR: Linking Physiology to Imaging
Weekend Course

ORGANIZERS: Tim Leiner, Bernd Wintersperger

Sunday, 12 May 2019
  13:30 - 17:00

Skill Level: Basic

Session Number: WE-23

This course will review essentials for clinical cardiac MR exams and provide an overview of the background physiology, clinical needs, and technical foundations, and will also explore research promises of new insights into the heart and its tissues.

Target Audience
Attendees who have an emerging interest and want to develop a working knowledge of cardiac MRI, gain an in-depth perspective on the technical foundations, in order to improve clinical diagnostics or advance technical aspects and cardiac imaging.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe basic cardiac physiology and electrophysiology aspects as they relate to cardiac MRI;
- Recognize appropriate clinical indications for ischemic and non-ischemic cardiomyopathies; and
- Explain the benefits and challenges of new cardiac MRI imaging avenues.

Cardiac MR images contain rich 4-D spatio-temporal information that have been largely unexploited in routine image interpretation. Feature-tracking as well as other novel post-acquisition analyses of these images have potential to yield clinical meaningful readouts that can allow detailed dissection of heart chamber global and regional, systolic and diastolic, function.
