Asian Time Zone (GMT+2)
28-30 August 2021


 
Europe/Africa/Middle East Time Zone (GMT+2)
16-18 October 2021

Course features:

  • Hands-on with your personal virtual workstation for 3 days​

  • Interactive with walkthroughs and quizzes

  • You report at least 50 scans

  • Learn to construct clinically relevant, succinct CMR reports

  • Eligible for 24 CPD credits in accordance with the CPD scheme by the Royal College of Radiologists

This three-day course offers dedicated, intense, individual and hands-on training and case-based learning.

Delegates will review full cases, reflecting real practice and there will be ample opportunity to rehearse constructing clinically relevant, succinct CMR reports​. 

 

Cases have been selected to emphasise common and important pathologies and underscore practical tips and tricks to improve image acquisition.

Core didactic lectures are recorded and will be made available before the virtual course, ensuring the maximum time for case review.
