Welcome to our Cardiac MRI Course – Level 1 accreditation CMR course taking place virtually for our colleagues based in New Zealand, Australia and Asia.
Set over three evenings, this CMR Level 1 accreditation course for Radiologists, will be led by Clinical Lead – Dr. Bobby Agrawal (Consultant Cardiac and Thoracic Radiologist) and Co-Director Dr. Vass Vassiliou Senior Clinical Lecturer in Cardiovascular Medicine and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist.
With seminars from the UK’s leading Cardiologists, from hospitals including the specialist Papworth Hospital, you’ll review cases across Paediatric and congenital heart disease, right through to Cardiac masses and tumours.
Radiographers are also encouraged to join us for Day 1 & 2 of the Cardiac MRI Course, where we’ll be covering essentials relevant to Radiographer’s in the preparation required for Cardiac MRI. This two-day Radiographer Course is also CPD-Endorsed by the Society of Radiographers.
This event has been especially designed to enable our colleagues within the Asia Pacific region to join us, until we can once again run course internationally.
Faculty Approved and Endorsed Training Course by SCMR (Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance)
