This module enables you to study the principles of Cardiac MRI and its common clinical application in a variety of cardiac conditions. It will provide background knowledge on the physics of MRI and suggest optimisation techniques for improved image quality and a robust patient safety framework. This course is tailored to address the needs of busy clinical practitioners, residents or research fellows who have just started working in cardiac MRI. It is also a useful module for those who have the clinical experience without the theoretical underpinnings.
This module will discuss patient safety and patient care in cardiac MRI, including preparation for the ECG. It will offer you a refresher on the related physical principles and expand further on planning, MRI sequences used for imaging cardiac anatomy and function. You will also learn detailed cardiac anatomy and frequently encountered pathology. You will interact with anonymised video recorded examples of clinical MRI examinations acquired by an expert cardiac MRI radiographer to allow for group discussion and further learning. This module is taught by academic experts and experienced clinical practitioners in cardiac MRI from collaborating teaching hospitals.
