Advanced Cardiac Imaging

This course is for radiologists, cardiologists, radiographers/ technologists and other health professionals who want to learn more about cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR). Previous experience in CMR is not required.

The learning outcomes are:

Understanding of the basic CMR physics and sequences in order to better understand how to acquire cardiac images and how to assess commonly used sequences (eg. Steady state free precession sequence, phase contrast to measure blood flow, T2* and magnetic resonance angiography)

Understand the safety profile and risks of contrast agents used in CMR.

Ability to analyse CMR images at SCMR level 1 competency such as stress perfusion, late gadolinium enhancement and post-processing for ventricular function.

Attain hands-on experience to analyse real clinical cases from a database of 50 clinical cases, using dedicated CMR software, as well as further supplementation through our web forum.

Basic understanding of future developments in the CMR field such as exercise CMR, artificial intelligence, feature tracking, T1 and T2 mapping.

Provide career advice and thoughts from well-known CMR experts through exclusive interviews.

A MOOC on cardiac computed tomography (CT) is also available on this platform in order to introduce you to this complementary cardiovascular imaging technique.

本课程是与国际心血管磁共振学会(SCMR)合作开发的,适合想要深度了解心血管磁共振成像(CMR)的放射科医师,心内科及心外科医师,放射科技师/工程师和其他医疗健康专业人士。而无需具备CMR经验。

学习目标如下:

了解基本的CMR物理和序列知识,以便更好地了解如何获取心脏图像以及如何评估常用序列(例如,稳态自由进动序列,相位对比血流测量,T2 *和磁共振血管造影)。

了解CMR造影剂的安全性和风险。

具备SCMR 1级CMR图像分析能力,例如负荷灌注,延迟强化和心室功能后处理。

临床病例数据库中获取50个真实病例,利用专业后处理软件及学习平台提供的资料进行教学操作,获得实践经验。

对CMR领域未来发展的基本了解,如人工智能、特征追踪,以及T1和T2定量成像。

通过独家访谈获取知名CMR专家对学生的职业建议和想法。

此平台上还提供心脏计算机断层扫描(CT)的公开课,以全面介绍这两种优势互补的心血管成像技术。
