Paediatric Cardiovascular MR Course
15th SPR Hands-On-Course on Pediatric Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance
October 10 - 12, 2017
The "SPR Hands-On Course on Pediatric Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance" is a small group course designed for beginner and intermediate level CMR operators. This three-day intensive event, sponsored by the Society for Pediatric Radiology, is designed for cardiologists and radiologists who want to expand their hands-on knowledge in CMR and advance the CMR program at their institutions. We will be scanning patients and volunteers to apply and solidify the knowledge from the teaching elements which include small group didactic sessions and lectures. The Faculty include experts from many of the largest paediatric CMR programs, with a delegate to faculty ratio of only 2:1.
All registrants for the hands-on course are also registered for the “13th SPR Symposium on Advanced Pediatric Cardiovascular Imaging” that will be held from October 13 to 15, immediately following the Hands-On-Course.
Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 21 participants (divided into groups for the hands-on scanning and processing parts) to ensure ample opportunity for hands-on experience and discussions.
Registration Fee: $1,400 CDN - includes registration to the 13th SPR Symposium on Advanced Pediatric Cardiovascular Imaging
