15th Hands-On Course on Pediatric Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance 

The 'Hands-on Course on Pediatric Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance' is a small group course designed for beginner and intermediate level CMR operators, both radiologists and cardiologists. This three-day intensive event, endorsed by the Society of Pediatric Radiology and now in its 15th year, 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 includes experts from many of largest pediatric CMR programs, with a luxurious delegate to faculty ratio of only 2:1.

Course Dates & Location:

The course will be held October October 10 - 12, 2017 at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

The conference features a variety of imaging modalities with a focus on CMR. Get the latest updates on technological advances, learn about state of the art imaging for common cardiac indications, and find out what the world leaders in pediatric CMR research are up to. This year we will explore the use of CMR in pediatric heart failure and introduce novel applications of 4D flow. We will apply comprehensive multimodality imaging to patients with Fontan circulations, learn about recent advances in fetal CMR, and much more.
