This course will review essential cardiac MRI exams and provide an overview of the clinical needs, technical foundations, and research promises. The focus will be on evaluating cardiac function, perfusion, viability, and relaxometry.

Target Audience
Attendees who wish to develop a working knowledge of cardiac MRI and gain an understanding of the technical foundations in order to improve clinical diagnostics or advance research in cardiac function, perfusion, viability imaging, and relaxometry.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the clinical need for the most common cardiovascular MRI examinations;
- Define the technical foundations of function, perfusion, and scar imaging, and the advantages and disadvantages of competing approaches; and
- Explain the principles and applications of cardiac relaxometry.

Magnetic resonance imaging of myocardial perfusion continues to challenge current limits for fast dynamic imaging to provide sufficient spatial and temporal resolution for accurate detection perfusion defects, and enable almost complete coverage of the left ventricle. The technical capabilities of MR cardiac perfusion imaging impact the clinical use of this technique for the detection of ischemic heart disease, and its relative importance compared to other imaging modalities and tests. Recent studies have shown that cardiac magnetic resonance perfusion imaging provides strong prognostic value for predicting adverse events.
