To be confirmed
The May 2023 course is fully booked.
Attendees will join the course in person at St Thomas' Hospital, London. There will be no online attendance for the May 2023 course. In November 2023, we will run an online course.
The course covers the basic principles of CMR, its clinical indications and role in a multi-modality imaging environment. Delegates will learn in lectures and interactive sessions, at the end of the course they will have a solid understanding of when to refer a patient for Cardiovascular MRI and how to interpret CMR images and reporting. This established 3-day course has been running for 12 years at King's, with an exceptional faculty of internationally renowned experts in the field of cardiac MRI.
Previous courses have been approved by the Royal College of Physicians for 18 CPD points and endorsed by SCMR for level 1 certification, we have submitted applications for the May course.
