Course overview

Attendees can join the course either In person(London) or Online(MS Teams).

This Cardiac MRI course aims to deliver a solid background of CMR (Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance) as a clinical application in routine clinical practice. It covers basic MRI safety/physics and focuses on the theory and practical skills involved with carrying out a simple CMR procedure as well as the more complex scans such as Perfusion imaging and Aortogram. The course also cover current topics of interest such as mapping and contrast safety, as well as less explored areas such as Congenital imaging. Attendees will benefit from sessions on tips and tricks to help improve their skills.

The newly found knowledge and skills from the course can be embedded in their future practice. The course has previously been endorsed by the College of Radiographers for the purposes of CPD for Radiographers.

 In person attendees will have access to scanner visits in the last session of the day.


What does this course cover?

Topics include:

  • Clinical Value of CMR
  • MR Safety/CMR Physics
  • Scanning device patients
  • Basic CMR
  • Perfusion scanning
  • Aortograms and Flow imaging
  • T1/T2 and ECV Mapping
  • Contrast safety
  • Congenital Cardiac MRI
  • Tips and Tricks: the difficult patient
  • Ectopics vs Arrythmias
  • Artefacts
  • LGE- CMRs Golden Egg
  • Future of CMR
  • In person attendees will join a live scanning session

What will I achieve?

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the value of CMR, the theoretical approach to CMR as well as improve upon their practical skills. We expect attendees to leave with a broader understanding of how to acquire high-quality images, but also being able to highlight pathology with a better understanding of normal vs abnormal cardiac anatomy.

Who will I learn with?

Amedeo  Chiribiri

Amedeo Chiribiri

Professor in Cardiovascular Imaging and Consultant Cardiologist, Guy’s and St Thomas’

Who is this for?

Attendance is open to all radiographers, imaging assistants and clinical fellows with an interest in the theoretical and practical aspect of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

What is the teaching schedule?

Mixture of lectures and practical sessions.
